Apple iPad Pro - 12.9" of Retina display

Apple has unveiled the long rumored iPad Pro - a 12.9" tablet designed for the workplace , although the tablet was long said to be just a myth ,the device was shown off in all its artistic and workhorse glory today (September 9) at a special event held in San Francisco . The tablet - a blown up version of the 9.7" slate  (Apple might have possibly ended the 9.7" form factor btw) Borrows much of the design aesthetics , the rear camera module from the outgoing iPad Air 2 , but the internals , the software and the 12.9" display are all new to the company .

UPDATE - Apple has confirmed that the new iPad Pro features 4GB of RAM ,not 2 as previously thought 

The new iPad Pro features a 2732x2048 resolution display which is currently the highest resolution display ever put on a Apple tablet (53 million pixels) . The IPS panel is designed from the ground to be a perfect companion for the enterprise environment as well as the mobile road warrior who want to create light content creation - edit 3 4K streams simultaneously on the Go . The display is backed up by Apple's new Apple Pencil stylus which is a optional accessory designed to take full use of the extra real-estate , editing Microsoft Word and Excel apps , as well as creating new thoughts via Photoshop Fix and its other software suites are now more refined than ever and since the Apple Pencil detects pressure levels , you can forget about the lack of the rumored "force touch" on this display

The new tablet features a Apple A9X processor with (around 2 GB of RAM) , the new chipset is built on Apple's 3rd generation 64bit designs and is said to be build on the 14nm FinFET technology . The processor is 1.8X faster than the Apple A8X found on the iPad Air 2 and it clearly is needed as this tablet can technically run two windows at the same time and even render 4K content . The chip is 80% faster than most consumer laptops of the past and Apple did make it clear that the new Apple A9X Soc is nothing to ignore about .  Rest of the features include a 32 GB base storage option followed by a 128GB (wifi only) option and a 128GB option for WIFI and Cellular (4G) connectivity  .There is a 10 hour battery , a 8MP iSight camera at the back and a HD facetime camera up front along with a fingerprint scanner  .Apple also has a new dock connector which allows you to connect the optional keyboard dock which is sold at $169 .

Apple's latest and greatest Tablet will run iOS 9 and it features Apple's new multitasking -split screen feature first demoed on the Air 2 . the experience is more refined and thanks to the larger canvas , things will run more efficiently and conveniently than the "smaller" model .

32GB Wi-Fi $799, 128GB Wi-Fi $949, 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular - $1079
