“iPad Pro is the most powerful iPad we’ve ever made, giving users the ability to be even more creative and more productive with the epic 12.9-inch Retina display, powerful 64-bit A9X chip and groundbreaking Apple Pencil and new Smart Keyboard. We can’t wait to see what they do with iPad Pro.” – said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Coming in larger dimensions the iPad Pro features a 2.9 Retina display with 5.6 million pixels and a groundbreaking performance with the new 64-bit A9X chip, to rival most portable PCs.
