The iPad Pro is the largest iPad ever and with it Apple includes a number of exciting iPad Pro features that will change the way you use an iPad for work and for play.
While the iPad Pro is a larger iPad, it is not just a bigger iPad. Apple packs in a number of important changes and new iPad Pro features that potential buyers need to know about.
Apple announced the new iPad Pro on September 9th alongside a new Apple TV, iPhone 6s an iPhone 6s Plus. The tablet runs iOS 9 and includes a massive high-resolution display as well as optional accessories to super-charge how you use this new iPad.
The iPad Pro release date is set for November 2015. Apple did not confirm a specific iPad Pro release date or time, which is how apple normally handles an announcement with a release pushed out a month or more.
Apple charges a premium for the iPad Pro with a 32GB iPad Pro price starting at $799, a 128GB iPad Pro for $949 and a high-end 128GB iPad Pro model with LTE built-in or $1,079. The iPad Pro price is just $100 less than an 11-inch MacBook Air, which is a hefty price for a tablet, especially one with a $99 iPad Pro stylus and $169 iPad Pro keyboard add-on.
Apple includes iOS 9 on the iPad Pro with support for split-screen multitasking like the iPad Air 2 includes. One missing feature is the new 3D Touch that Apple announced for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus today.
With this in mind we are taking a look at the most exciting iPad Pro features that we think buyers will appreciate and that will justify both the cost and the bigger size of the new iPad Pro.
