The 12.9 inch iPad Pro is Finally a Reality

At the Apple launch, Tim Cook announced “The biggest news in iPad since the iPad”. The new iPad Pro is the company’s push for the iPad in a big way. It is the “biggest screen on an iOS device, with more power and performance than any iOS device.”

According to the company, the iPad Pro is thin enough to hold all day long and buoyant enough to be used as a flotation device in case of emergency. But we feel like it may just be too big to hold in one hand.

Screen 12.9 Retina display
Display 5.6 mil pixels
Sound 4 speaker audio
Battery 10 hours
Camera 8 megapixel iSight
Connectivity Up to 150 mbps LTE

The iPad Pro is upto 1.8X faster than the previous models and is faster than 80% of the portable PCs that have been released. It boasts of a desktop class performance and a great sound system, which includes a four-speaker audio system that balances stereo and frequencies depending on how you hold it.

Apple introduced two new features – the physical keyboard and the Apple Pencil. The keyboard can be attached to the iPad magnetically. The Apple Pencil was introduced to almost lukewarm reactions from the crowd. The stylus has a built in lightning cable for charging.

Apple in a surprising and amusing move, gave the stage to the Microsoft Office team headed by Kirk Konigsbauer, who introduced the Microsoft Office for the iPad. Using iOS9 multitasking, you can have word and excel on the screen at the same time. Earlier, Samsung came out with a multitasking feature, but Apple looks to make it more efficient and user friendly.

Next was Irene Walsh on stage who introduced a new app called 3D4Medical.

“I’m excited to show you how with the new iPad Pro, our ability to communicate with patients has dramatically improved.”

The app shows 3D models of the body, animated in real time. This app is sure to help both patients and medical professionals because the advantages seem to reach far and wide as one can draw out surgeries and get a look of injuries in 3D.

Last year’s iPad Air 2, had a new display, upgraded A8X chip, 6.1mm thin, less than a pound. This year’s new iPad, the iPad Pro, has a better display, upgraded A9X, slightly thicker, slightly heavier. The 32/128 (Wi-Fi)/128 (Wi-Fi + Cellular) GB iPad Pro will cost $799/ $949/ $1079 respectively, the Pencil will cost $99 and the keyboard will be $169.

The iPad Pro is a designer’s dream come true because of the apps and features it offers. However, only the future will tell us how it will make an impact in terms of usage, to the common man. Let us know what you think about this wonder, in the comments below.

    What experience do you gather from an iPhone other than show off? Do you want to put it in your resume?

    Its all Hype created by Brand Name. and desire of people to show that can afford expensive piece. other wise Iphone clearly fools its customers . I will prove it right now. Every one you ask why you like Iphone 80-90% of them won’t be able to answer specifically -They will say- Quality is good. software is good. ok agreed software is good what about the hardware same hardware is given by 10K INR. phone. or a budget phone. so if Iphone works fine with IOS using old school hardware why they are not giving latest hardware coz they are fooling you ppl as the cost of software is one time its fixed cost. And above all many people dont want to accept that its a bad phone coz they have already spend a lot on it.
