The iPad Pro was made official in September 2015 and is shipping worldwide as we speak. Guess we already know what's been going on under the surface but the bottom line is Apple lets you decide about the optional pencil and keyboard.
At 12.9 inches of display diagonal, the iPad Pro is Apple's largest tablet and largest handheld device running iOS, considering there are a couple of smaller MacBooks.
First up is the Pencil. The Pencil is an active battery powered device and houses all the tech needed for precise measurement of not only different levels of pressure, but also tilt, so that it's able to reproduce your drawing digitally with all its nuances as you would expect from say, a specialized Wacom tablet.
12.9-inch IPS panel
The Apple iPad Pro comes with a 12.9-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2,048 x 2,732 pixels, the pixel density is the same - 264ppi.
In terms of color rendering, the iPad Pro is sufficiently geared to show accurate colors (Avg DeltaE 6.4) though we wouldn't go as far as using it for color critical work (you'd need all colors to stay below DeltaE 4) for that. We're not quite sure how that would go with the professional aspirations of the device, which supposedly should make it a preferred tool for creatives.
8MP camera, using it looks plain awkward
The iPad Pro comes with an 8MP primary camera on the back, capable of shooting images at 3,264 x 2,448 pixels in resolution. The lens is a 31mm-equivalent with an f/2.4 aperture.
There's a manual HDR mode which by default saves the regular non-HDR shot as well. Holding the virtual shutter button will shoot a burst sequence at 10fps indefinitely, or until you run out of storage.
Good 1080p videos
Video recording on the iPad Pro can be done in either 1080p or 720p both at 30fps. There's also a slow motion mode, recorded at 720p/120fps.
Apple iPad Pro battery life
The iPad Pro has a 10,307mAh battery, split into 2 cells, as teardowns revealed. Apple promises 10 hours of the web browsing or video playback and it's half right.
We appreciate that battery endurance leans towards web browsing, as the 4:3 ratio is infinitely better suited to reading, than watching videos.
