Cool tips and tricks to get even more out of your iPhone, including battery life, taking photos and alerts.
Even with its 12.9-inch Retina display, the largest and most capable iPad ever is only 6.9 millimetres thin and weighs just 713 grams. It has a powerful A9X chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, Four Speaker Audio, advanced FaceTime HD and iSight cameras, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE connectivity, iCloud, the breakthrough Touch ID fingerprint sensor and up to 10 hours of battery life.
It also includes great apps for productivity and creativity, as well as many more incredible apps available in the App Store. And with powerful new features in iOS 9 like multitasking, iPad Pro can do things no iPad has done before.
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.
