The large screen makes the most of the multitasking features introduced in iOS 9 earlier this year. Users are able to run two apps simultaneously on the equivalent of a full-size vertical display.

In addition to the large screen, the iPad Pro has two additional speakers built in to create a stereo sound system that has 61% more back volume than other systems. This will provide a wide frequency range with three times the output of previous models.

An additional accessory unique to the iPad Pro is the Apple Pencil. A new multi-touch subsystem enables pressure and tilt sensors to allow for variation in line weight, shading and other artistic effects. A lightning cable connector at the end of the pencil allows it to be charged directly from the iPad. Fifteen seconds of charging allows for 30 minutes of use.
