Here’s quick run about Ipad Pro:

Surprisingly Apple Announced a smart keyboard and a styles namely called “APPLE PENCIL” as the accessories of Ipad Pro. They say, “Sometimes you want the convenience of a physical keyboard”. There’s a new connector on the side of the iPad Pro called the Smart Connecter, it carries power and data to the keyboard
Though It’s a case, it’s very much like a Microsoft Surface. (The iPad Surface Pro. Lol)
Stylus : Apple Pencil :
The Apple Stylus , Named as the Apple Pencil, an accessory for Apple Ipad Pro.
Highly responsive sensors built into the tip of Apple Pencil sensor pressure, tilt, and stroke. Its unique tip signature allows it to be used simultaneously with your finger.
I wonder , this is pure contradiction to Steve Job’s ideas. I still remember steve Jobs asking the audience “who needs a stylus?” during the original iphone launch.
However the Apple Pencil is not just a competition but also seems like a replica to Microsoft Surface Pen.
Ipad Pro Pricing :
Space Gray, gold, silver. Starts at $799 and goes to $1079.
Apple Pencil is $99 and Smart Keyboard is $169, all available in November.
At the End , iPad Pro with keyboard and pencil costs: $1,079 + $99 + $169 = $1,347.
