    Apple announces iPad Pro to combat the Surface Pro


    Up until now, the iPad came in two sizes -- 9.7 inches (iPad Air 2) and 5.3 inches (iPad mini 3). That changes with the introduction of the iPad Pro, a 12.9-inch slate that aims to offer users the ability to get work done, not just play Angry Birds.

    Apple also introduced an iPad mini 4 tablet, though it's the new iPad Pro that warrants a discussion. It's built around Apple's new custom A9X chip, a 64-bit SoC with performance "rivaling most portable PCs." Taking it a step further, Apple says the A9X's third-generation 64-bit architecture combines desktop-class CPU performance with console-class graphics.

    “iPad Pro is the most advanced and powerful iPad we have ever made. Its beautiful and large 12.9-inch Retina display (2732x2048 resolution; 264 ppi) has 5.6 million pixels and provides an immersive experience for content and apps. The iPad Pro is far and away the fastest iOS device we have ever made — its A9X chip beats most portable PCs in both CPU and graphics tasks, but is thin and light enough to hold all day,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

    Those are some bold claims, and in time, we'll find out if the iPad Pro's performance lives up to the hype or not.

    In the meantime, let's talk about the iPad Pro's purpose. This isn't just another content consumption device, it's essentially Apple's version of the Surface Pro. The difference here is that it's not running Mac OS X, but iOS 9, which Apple also unveiled today.

    Their innovation was gone long before Steve Jobs.
