12.9 Inch iPad pro Is Bigger than Your Face

by on September 10, 2015

Last night Apple confirmed the rumours were true, they’ve made an even bigger iPad.

Yup, the new model will boast a 12.9 inch screen and the bigger size means Apple have been able to furnish the tablet with a four speaker sound system to improve the audio performance.

The customary improvements have also been made under the hood too, a new A9X 64-bit processor provides enough oomph to provide a speedy experience and better graphics to fill all of the screen’s 5.6 million pixels.

In addition to this, Apple unveiled a Smart Keyboard and Pencil to go with the iPad Pro.

The keyboard itself also functions as a cover for the new device, folding out to a stand and keyboard to provide ease of use (kind of like Microsoft’s Surface). While the Pencil will provide pinpoint accuracy and will also be pressure sensitive, allowing for total control with regards to drawing (kind of like Microsoft’s Surface).

iOS 9 was also showcased, featuring several improvements from better multi-tasking to improved maps and notes applications.

Prices start at $799 for the 32GB version, with $949 for the 64GB and $1,079 for the 128GB version. The Pencil will weigh in at $99 and the keyboard will be $169.
