Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the extra-large iPad Pro with a giant 12.9-inch screen and revamped internals along with the latest range of iPhones at an event in San Francisco last September.

The big iPad Pro comes with phenomenal specs that make it a useful and coveted device. Here are top five reasons why a user is likely to buy the giant tablet.

Running on Apple’s latest iOS 9, the iPad Pro comes with smart accessories and upgraded RAM. Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said this tablet is the “most advanced and powerful iPad we have ever made”.

Smart Keyboard to replace a laptop

The Smart Keyboard further enhances the performance and refines the utility of the tablet. It’s a full-sized keyboard available for purchase separately.

The keyboard can be attached to the iPad Pro through a Smart Connector port. It supports the Quick Type feature that makes typing faster than ever. The Smart Keyboard is easily foldable.

The Apple SIM compatibility makes the iPad Pro an entirely independent device that can replace a laptop or a PC. The 128 GB iPad Pro comes with the Apple SIM compatibility that connects to multiple carriers in over 90 countries. This feature appears to be pretty useful for business travelers, reports MayPalo.

Apple Pencil

The iPad Pro is accompanied by a stylus called Apple Pencil. But it has to be bought separately. This precision device can be used for drawing and sketching. The Pencil works perfectly with the revamped Multi-touch display of the new iPad Pro.

The highly advanced sensor of the Pencil can measure pressure and tilt for a smooth working experience. It works with apps like Mail, Notes, Procreate and Office 365 for iPad.

Powerful processor and Multi-touch technology

Powered by the new 64-bit A9X chip, the iPad Pro delivers desktop-class CPU performance. The latest iOS 9 brings in new Siri features to enhance performance to a new level. Furthermore, ultra fast wireless with support from wide range of LTE bands delivers good performance.

Apple’s latest iPad is huge. It measures 12.9-inches diagonally, allowing it to accommodate two apps simultaneously on its giant screen. The large screen Retina display has 5.6 million pixels to provide a more immersive experience for content. Apple claims the Multi-touch technology provides the “highest resolution display ever in an iOS device”.

Multitasking features

The new split-screen multitasking feature allows users to do more work in limited time. With more than 850,000 new apps, a redefined Notes app and an all-new News app, working on an iPad Pro can be a pleasure for students, as well as professionals.   

Speakers

The iPad Pro with its innovative new four-speaker audio design provides a high quality, rich, clear and powerful audio experience without the need to attach a secondary speaker, as reviewed by CNET. For all those music lovers out there, this device will make you swoon.
