Apple unveils large-format iPad Pro tablet
Chief executive Tim Cook, speaking at a San Francisco media event, called the device “the biggest news in iPad since the iPad.”
The new tablet with a 12.9-inch (32.7-centimeter) display, also includes a detachable keyboard and stylus.
The device features “desktop-class performance” and operates faster than 80 percent of portable PCs that shipped in the last 12 months, said Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller.
“It is thin and light enough to work all day and be taken everywhere,” Schiller said.
