Hot off the presses of today’s Apple Special Event at the Civic Center in San Francisco, California are the announcement of its new product line, including the highly rumored iPad Pro, which is now official. Coming in at 12.9 inches, the new tablet still uses its tried-and-true Retina Display technology to pump out 5.6 million pixels at a resolution of 2752×2048 (designed as such so that the height of the iPad Air 2 is now the width of the iPad Pro) and powered by an all-new A9X chip. Weight figures come in at 1.57 lbs and with a thickness of 6.9 mm — halfway between the 6.1 mm of the iPad Air 2 and the 7.5 mm of the original iPad Air. Other features include four stereo speakers found at the edge of all four corners, 10-hour battery life, and a new smart connector interface. Alongside the hardware comes two interesting accessories in the form of the Apple Pencil, which is a drawing device that has pressure and tilt-sensitive innards for fine control of line width and shading, and a Smart Keyboard that utilizes the new connector port and transforms from a simple cover to a tactile physical keyboard, featuring the same butterfly key mechanism found on the new Macbook.

The iPad Pro will come in 32 GB and 128 GB configurations for $799 USD and $949 USD respectively, with an LTE model 128 GB version priced at $1,079 USD in silver, gold and “Space Gray” colors in November.
