iPad has always offered a uniquely simple yet immersive experience. And now with its expansive 12.9-inch Retina display, nearly double the CPU performance of iPad Air 2, and refined Multi‑Touch technology, iPad Pro adds another dimension to that experience. It’s not just larger. It’s an iPad that lets you be more creative and more productive — at a whole new scale.
With 5.6 million pixels, iPad Pro features the highest‑resolution Retina display of any iOS device. The 12.9‑inch screen makes everything you do — editing 4K video, designing presentations, running a business — easier, faster, and more engaging. And the Multi‑Touch subsystem has been reengineered, expanding the ways you can interact with iPad.
At the heart of iPad Pro lies the new A9X, our third‑generation chip with 64‑bit desktop‑class architecture. It delivers up to 1.8 times the CPU performance and double the graphics performance of iPad Air 2. So even the most demanding apps run effortlessly.
iOS 9 is the most intuitive, advanced, and secure mobile operating system in the world. With new capabilities that take full advantage of the powerful performance of iPad Pro, it helps you be more productive and creative. Multitasking makes running two apps at once a snap. And improved features throughout the system, including Siri and Spotlight search, make iPad even more useful. If it feels like iOS 9 and iPad Pro were designed for each other, it’s because they were.
iPad Pro comes with a variety of built‑in apps that make it easy to take on the essential things you do every day. And on the App Store, you’ll find incredible apps designed just for iPad, so there’s virtually no limit to what you can do.
Even with its massive display, iPad Pro has an astonishingly slim and light design — just 6.9 mm thin and 1.57 pounds. Yet thanks to the strong unibody enclosure, it feels well‑balanced and sturdy. For all its capabilities, the most surprising thing about iPad Pro may be how easily it seems to disappear in the hand.
With four new high‑fidelity speakers built directly into its unibody, iPad Pro creates an audio experience as big as its display. The new design produces an engaging soundstage with three times the acoustic output of iPad Air. But it goes even further than that. iPad Pro automatically adjusts the orientation of the high frequencies according to how you’re holding it. So whether you’re playing a game or watching a movie, the sound of iPad Pro is more immersive than ever.
The Smart Keyboard combines an array of new technologies and materials to create a keyboard like no other.1 It’s a full‑size keyboard that’s fully portable, and connects to iPad Pro with the Smart Connector, an innovative new interface that allows for a two‑way exchange of power and data. Just attach the Smart Keyboard and start typing.
With its pixel‑perfect precision, Apple Pencil expands the power of Multi‑Touch and opens up new creative possibilities.1 It’s sensitive to both tilt and pressure, allowing you to create a range of artistic strokes and effects — from the thinnest of lines to subtle shading. Beyond adding new capabilities to iPad Pro, Apple Pencil also feels completely natural and responsive from the moment you pick it up.
iPad Pro uses Touch ID technology to turn your fingerprint into an unforgettable password. So you can unlock your device with just a touch and keep your personal data safe, even if you share your iPad with someone else. Touch ID also lets you make secure purchases in iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store. And with Apple Pay, you can make purchases within your favorite apps, easily and securely.
People love to take photos with iPad. The iSight camera on iPad Pro has an advanced sensor that lets you shoot beautiful images and video. The Apple-designed image signal processor gives you excellent results, whether you’re taking a panorama or using burst or timer modes. You can also shoot time‑lapse and slo‑mo video in 720p HD. And with a larger viewfinder, you’ll see more detail than ever before.
