Earlier leaks also suggest that the iPad Pro will come with multi-user login support and also feature the much awaited split screen view. It is set to come with accessories like Bluetooth stylus, additional keyboard and USB-C connector. It will also have NFC support, and come with the new Force Touch technology seen on Apple Watches and the new Macbooks.
Furthermore, it will only be 7mm thick, will weigh less than 700 grams, and pack a monstrous 11,000mAh battery. Additionally, the tablet will be powered by an A8X processor paired with 2GB of RAM, and feature an anti-reflective screen coating, and come in different color options, much like iPhones. The tablet is also likely to run on a hybrid version of iOS which will have support for several OS X s features including multitasking and more. There is no clarity on when the iPad Pro is set for release, but it could be sometime later this year.
