To create an iPad this huge, no detail was too small. From the way images are brought to life to its considerable versatility, it was pushed every aspect of what's possible with iPad to advanced heights. The end result, unmistakable the moment you begin using it, goes beyond a larger display. Unlike anything before it, iPad Pro is a far bigger experience.
iPad Pro has the advanced Retina display. The 12.9-inch screen offers more display area. Under the glass lie a revamped multi-touch subsystem and 5.6 million brilliant pixels, making it the high-resolution display. That extreme resolution, along with remarkably lifelike colors and deeper blacks, makes everything from photo editing to intense 3D games more vivid and deeply engaging.
A huge leap of engineering
The Retina display on iPad Pro incorporates advanced technologies to enable unparalleled levels of precision and responsiveness. The multi-touch subsystem was designed to accommodate two types of touch - your finger and Apple pencil.
To improve on-axis contrast, it was used an advanced process called photo alignment. This involves shining UV light to create a uniform terrain across the film coating on the thin film transistor and color filter, so the display's liquid crystal molecules lie precisely where they should. Better-aligned molecules mean you see better contrast when looking directly at the display.
Variable refresh rate
iPad Pro knows when the content on your screen is static and cuts the refresh rate in half. This means that the screen isn't just big, beautiful, and bright. It's also incredibly energy-efficient.
The timing controller, or TCON, is the brains of the display. It tells each pixel what to do and when to do it. Since iPad Pro has 2.5 million more pixels, it was designed the TCON to handle the greater resolution, giving it more bandwidth to allow incredible pixel control at lightning-fast speeds.
An elegant form that's exceptionally strong
iPad Pro feels reassuringly solid in the hand. The aluminum unibody is a perfect balance of lightness and uncommon strength.
Four speaker audio
The iPad Pro has four advanced speakers that produce a stereo soundstage as enveloping as its display. For the first time, the speaker housings have been machined directly into the unibody enclosure. This architecture gives the speakers more back volume. You'll hear a wider frequency range and up to three times more output than on any other iPad.
An incredible sound experience, no matter how you turn it
The speakers in iPad Pro aren't just high-fidelity, they're highly intelligent. While all four produce bass frequencies, the topmost speakers are dedicated to higher frequencies. They also automatically recognize whether the device is in portrait or landscape view. So you'll always get vivid, well-balanced sound no matter how you're holding iPad Pro.
The smart keyboard
The advanced smart keyboard for iPad Pro has all the utility of an ordinary full-size keyboard, but its technology couldn't be less conventional. The surface is formed from a single sheet of custom-woven fabric that has been laser ablated to precisely form each key. This unique construction ensures a satisfyingly responsive, accurate, and natural feel. Underneath that fabric lies a conductive material that allows for a two-way flow of power and data. That's why you won't find any batteries, cords, or on/off switches on the smart keyboard. And unlike traditional wires, the conductive fabric can withstand a lifetime of folding, though it's nearly as thin as a sheet of paper.
More than a connector
The smart connector is an interface that takes advantage of the two-way conductive fabric in the smart keyboard. It allows iPad Pro to provide power to the smart keyboard and lets the smart keyboard relay each of your keystrokes back to iPad Pro. Using the smart connector couldn't be easier. Simply align the smart keyboard to iPad Pro - just as you would with a smart cover - and start typing. There's even less distance between what's on your mind and what's on the display.
