Apple announced the iPad Pro on Wednesday during a press event, and it’s the largest iPad to date with a massive 12.9-inch display.
It features multitasking with slide-over, split-view, picture-in-picture and an incredible screen with 5.6 million pixels, which makes it sharper than that on a Retina MacBook Pro. Other features include an A9X processor, which is up to 22x faster than the original iPad and up to 1.8x faster than the A8X. Graphics performance, too, is more than double that of last year’s chip. All of that power makes it a bit chubbier than the iPad Air, though not by much — it’s 6.9mm thick versus the 6.1mm thick iPad Air.
The iPad Pro will feature 4G LTE support (up to 150Mbps), Touch ID, 802.11 ac with MIMO Wi-Fi and an 8-megapixel iSight camera. It will launch in November starting at $799 for 32GB of storage. The 128GB model will cost $949 with Wi-Fi and a 128Gb with Wi-Fi + Cellular will cost $1079.
