iPad Pro

The Apple iPad Pro is a larger version of the original Apple iPad that the company announced on September 9th, 2015, with retail availability expected later in November of the same year.

While the original iPad's screen measured 9.7 inches, the iPad Pro is a 12.9-inch tablet with 2,732 x 2,048 pixel resolution that is nearly as thin (6.9mm) as the company's iPad Air while weighing about the same (1.59 pounds) as Apple's original iPad device.

Apple iPad Pro Features and Specs

The iPad Pro is powered by Apple's iOS 9 mobile operating system and an A9X processor that Apple claims runs 22 times faster than the chip in the original iPad. Features include Force Touch support, a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera on the front and an 8-megapixel iSight camera on the back, enhanced multitasking support via iOS 9, 10 hours of battery life and multiple color options (silver, gold and space gray).

Apple's iPad Pro will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128 GB models. The 32GB model will cost $799, and a "smart" keyboard for the device will be available for $169 as well as a $99 Apple Pencil stylus.
