    Brings Phil Schiller, Apple senior vp of worldwide marketing, to show it off. "A huge screen, the biggest we've ever built on an iPad ..."
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:21:59 PM
    "TV shows and movies are more cinematic"; keyboards are bigger, so can even have a small piano keyboard.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:23:01 PM

    Bigger keyboard on the iPad Pro will make typing easier.

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:23:13 PM
    How big is it? 12.9 inches diagonally.

    Size comparison of iPad Air and iPad Pro

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:23:45 PM
    iPad Air 2 was the biggest -- width of new one is the same as the height of the old iPad.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:23:47 PM
    5.6 million pixels, more than on a 15-inch laptop.

    Inside look at the iPad Pro.

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:24:58 PM
    Looks like a niche product to me...

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:25:35 PM
    Is this a portable device, or one to keep at the home or office?
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:26:09 PM
    Ten hours of battery life.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:27:43 PM
    iPad Air 2 currently sells for $500. And they're having trouble selling them. So...

    Pro weighs about as much as the original iPad.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:29:05 PM

    iPad Pro is not much heavier than original iPad

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:29:12 PM
    Apple introducing new accessory for iPad Pro -- the smart keyboard.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:29:51 PM
    Looks like Microsoft's Surface keyboard, built into the cover.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:30:08 PM

    iPad Pro can come with a smart keyboard.

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:30:27 PM
    New "smart connector" on side of iPad Pro. Attach the keyboard to the connector.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:30:54 PM
    Wonder why he keeps insisting this is just for iPad Pro? Because it needs this "connector"?
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:31:24 PM
    Stylus? We don't need no steenkin' stylus...until we do...
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:31:26 PM
    A keyboard? Aha...! They're trying to eat Microsoft's lunch. Their Surface Pro machines are doing surprisingly well, because they're basically full-featured Windows PCs. Is this Apple's response?
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:31:27 PM
    And a stylus. All these things Steve Jobs would never abide. the Apple Pencil.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:32:02 PM
    Give Apple credit. They're actually quite good at admitting it when they're wrong.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:32:03 PM

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:32:57 PM
    Apple Pencil needs a battery? Um....
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:34:06 PM
    Remember, "nobody needs a bigger screen on their phone?"
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:34:08 PM

    A drawing by Apple Pencil

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:34:11 PM
    College students might actually use this thing now instead of a laptop, since they're adding a keyboard and stylus.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:34:43 PM

    In mail feature, where one can draw right in the email and send it back.

    No Sway for iPad, Hiawatha?
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:38:43 PM
    Eric Snowden from Adobe. This really looks to me like a workplace/campus device.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:40:20 PM
