According to recent reports, Apple will allegedly be releasing a 12.9-inch iPad Pro sometime this year. The tech giant is also speculated to be debuting a stylus tool — sold separately — to the newest addition to the iPad family. The iPad Pro will be the largest of its kind, surpassing the 9.7-inch display of the current iPad Air 2. The rumors come after Apple previously filed numerous stylus patents. This comes as no surprise, as there are plenty of iPad competitors in the market that feature the stylus — think the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, Google Nexus 9, and the Samsung Galaxy Note. There really are no negative consequences to the addition of the stylus, as it only offers an efficient alternative to using the tips of your fingers. Stay tuned as we await more information about the new Apple iPad Pro.
