According to a report in 9to5Mac citing sources familiar with the device, the upcoming Apple iPad Pro will be able to run two full-size application side by side on its large display. The Cupertino giant is expected to unveil the slate on Wednesday alongside iPhone 6s.
The iPad Pro will pack an A9X chip, which is said to be a massive improvement over the already capable iPad Air 2. The high-end slate will pack 12.9” “monster” display, optional LTE connectivity, a quartet of stereo speakers, Lightning port connector, and iOS 9.1.
There are three rumored color options - Gold, Silver, and Space Gray. Built-in memory options for the iPad Pro are said to start at 64GB, and top out at 128GB.
As expected, Apple’s flagship tablet won’t come cheap. Fully tricked out models with LTE connectivity are expected to easily top $1,000 jsut like the company’s notebooks.
In addition to the usual array of covers and cases, Apple will also offer optional stylus and keyboard with Force Touch on board.
Apple will reportedly open the pre-order books for the tablet in October, with deliveries set to begin at the end of November. Apparently, the production of the slate is running behind schedule.
Unsurprisingly, the latest iPad Pro report falls in line with past rumors. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long to get the full scoop on the tablet.
