The 9.7-inch iPad Pro delivers an unprecedented combination of portability and performance. Powered by the A9X chip and featuring the brightest, most advanced Retina display, it's only 6.1 millimetres thin and weighs less than 500 grams. When you add Apple Pencil with its pixel-perfect precision, and the incredibly thin Smart Keyboard, iPad Pro becomes even more versatile.
With its epic Retina display, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the largest and most powerful iPad ever designed, yet it’s only 6.9 millimetres thin and weighs just over 700 grams. It turns advanced tasks into brilliant, immersive experiences. And with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, iPad Pro becomes even more versatile in a way no other device can.*
*Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard are sold separately. Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro is only available in a US English keyboard layout.
The new Multi-Touch subsystem in iPad Pro gives Apple Pencil striking capabilities alongside pixel-perfect precision. Using incredibly sensitive pressure and tilt sensors, Apple Pencil instantly recognises when you are pressing harder or shifting its angle. So you can vary the line weight, create subtle shading and produce a wide range of artistic effects — just like with a conventional pencil.
The new Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro has all the utility of an ordinary full-sized keyboard, but its technology is far from conventional. The entire keyboard is draped with a custom-woven fabric that has been laser-ablated to precisely define each key and ensure a satisfyingly fast and natural ‘key feel’. Below the surface of Smart Keyboard is a new conductive material.
At just 0.1 millimetre, it is nearly as thin as a piece of paper, yet strong enough to withstand a lifetime of folding. And it’s why you won’t find any batteries, cords or on/off switches with Smart Keyboard. (Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro is only available in a U.S English keyboard layout.)
Now iOS is even better with major improvements to an already great set of built-in apps, smarter Siri and search features, and much more. The free iOS 9 software update is available from Apple.
