Apple’s long rumoured iPad Pro is apparently just around the corner, with an announcement set to take place at one of Apple’s upcoming press conferences. The new tablet will sport a larger 12 inch screen, though it won’t start shipping until November, which is apparently due to the fact that Apple’s Stylus isn’t quite finished yet.
The iPad Pro display will sport a 2732×2048 resolution, with very thin bezels. It will essentially look like a bigger iPad Air, as you would probably expect.
Standout features for the new tablet will include the addition of Force Touch and a new stylus. The new line of iPhones are also expected to feature Force Touch displays, just like the Apple Watch and Macbook trackpads. According to 9to5Mac’s report, the stylus won’t look traditional either, so it will be interesting to see what the company has come up with this time.
Pre-orders for the iPad Pro will reportedly open up in October, with the first units shipping out in November. However, we don’t yet have any word on pricing. Given that it is a larger iPad Air, the price difference will likely be similar to that of the iPad Mini and the full-sized variant.

KitGuru Says: Apple has been looking for a way to shake things up as far as the iPad is concerned, as sales have been slowly declining over time. It will be interesting to see how a 13 inch iPad will be received, as that point you are bordering on laptop territory so Apple will need to add additional functionality to iOS to make it as functional for productivity.
