In what can be seen as one of the biggest iPad announcements in the last few years, an all new iPad model the iPad Pro was also unveiled this morning. For years the largest display as been 9.7-inches, the iPad Pro takes it’s display right up to 12.9-inches providing a huge screen realestate for your Apps & work.

Two iPad Pro ready accessories from Apple have also been unveiled including a keyboard but something more interesting is what’s called the Apple Pencil. This pencil allows you to draw more accurately with pixel-pixel perfection, it’s also pressure sensitive too meaning the harder you press the thicker your lines are.
