“Today we have the biggest news in iPad since the iPad,” says Apple CEO Tim Cook.
The new iPad Pro uses a 12.9-inch display, and makes use of the new split screen app features of iOS 9. The width of the iPad Pro is the same as the height of the iPad Air 2. “It can do things that a smartphone doesn’t do because it doesn’t have to sit in your pocket,” says Apple’s Phil Schiller. It uses a new A9X processor.

The Smart Keyboard goes with the iPad Pro. “This is unlike any keyboard you’ve ever used before,” says Schiller. The Apple Pencil is the stylus for the iPad Pro that can be recharged using a Lightning connector that plugs directly into the iPad.
iPad Pro comes in silver, gold, and space grey. And for the price, it sells for $799, $949, and $1079.
Apple Pencil costs $99. The iPad Pro smart keyboard sells for $170.
