The iPad Pro features a 12.9-inch display with 5.6 million pixels that is able to allow for multitasking. Multitasking is done through a picture-in-picture-like function. Even though the iPad Pro features the largest display on any iOS device ever created, Apple promises it will still be light enough to hold with a single hand.

The iPad Pro will have an external keyboard available that can dock to the tablet through three magnetic circles locates on the side. The Smart Keyboard will retail for $169.

That isn't the only accessory Apple has announced for iPad Pro as the Apple Pencil will also be available which will cost $99.

The iPad Pro will sell for $799 for the 32GB version, $949 for the 128GB version, and $1079 for the 128GB with Wi-Fi and cellular connection. Apple says the iPad Pro will be available in November.
