iPad Pro: What is it and does it have accessories?
Apple unveiled its latest iPad - the iPad Pro - during its iPhone 6S event in September 2015.
The new tablet is Apple's most powerful and largest one to date, as it features a 12.9-inch Retina display and is powered by a 64-bit A9X chip (which Apple claims rivals most portable PCs). The iPad Pro is actually meant to replace the computer in some home and business situations.
It offers exclusive iOS 9 multitasking features, such as Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture, as well as a 10-hour battery life, Touch ID, and a full-sized keyboard via Apple's new Smart Keyboard.
It even works with Apple's new Pencil stylus. You can learn more about the iPad Pro from Pocket-lint's hands-on review.
