Apple suggesting Microsoft Office with purchase of an iPad Pro

Microsoft Office

During Apple's Monday iPhone SE keynote, senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said one of the reasons Apple launched a 9.7-inch iPad Pro is to attract Windows users. Schiller said, " the majority of people that come to an iPad Pro are coming from a Windows PC, a desktop or a notebook." This is why it is no surprise that Apple is suggesting Microsoft Office to customers who are looking to pre-order the new iPad Pro model.

Does the 9.7-inch iPad Pro have a Smart Connector / Smart Keyboard?
