Definition: iPad Pro


Apple's most advanced tablet family. Introduced in 2015 with a 12.9" Retina Display screen and up to 128GB of storage. The Pro's four speakers boosted volume significantly over previous iPads. Pro models are considerably faster than previous iPads and rival Apple's laptops (see MacBook).

In 2016, a smaller 9.7" Pro featured a True Tone screen that adjusts automatically to the ambient light. Live Photos was also added, and storage was increased to 256GB for both models. In 2018, the Smart Keyboard was introduced for all three Pro models, which has a full-size keyboard and integrated cover. An 11" model was also added. See Apple Pencil, Live Photos, iPad and iOS versions.
