iPad Pro may be limited in quantity at launch

iPad Pro Release Date

The initial shipment of iPad Pro models will be "much lower than most market watchers' expectations," according to the DigiTimes. Supply chain sources told the Taiwanese trade publication that Apple is being rather "cautious" about placing iPad Pro component orders, which means there will be limited quantities of the 12.9-inch iPad when it begins shipping later this year. The supply chain will begin manufacturing the iPad Pro in "late-September and the device is expected to become available in the market after mid-November," according to industry sources.

Does the iPad Pro have multitasking?

Apple added several multitasking features to the iPad in iOS 9. Slide Over allows users to open a second app without leaving the one they're currently using. With Split View users can have two apps open and running side-by-side, and Picture in Picture allows users to watch videos while doing other things on their iPad, such as surfing the web.

Slide Over and Picture in Picture are supported by the iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 3. Split View is supported by the iPad Air 2.

Larger iPad Pro keyboard found hiding in iOS 9

iPad iOS 9 Keyboard

iOS developer Steve Troughton Smith has discovered a new keyboard hiding in the iOS 9 beta. The keyboard scales to a much larger unreleased iPad display size, and it resembles a more typical QWERTY keyboard with new keys and an extra row of symbols. As you can see from the image above, the iOS 9 keyboard features a row of keys with the symbols #, $, % and so on, and it includes a Tab and Caps Lock key.

Rumored 12-inch iPad Pro to have NFC, Force Touch and more

JoyFactory Monet iPad Stylus

The rumored 12-inch iPad, dubbed the "iPad Pro," will allegedly ship with NFC, Force Touch, a USB-C connector and a pressure-sensitive Bluetooth stylus, according to Apple Insider.

The addition of an NFC radio in the iPad will not be for Apple Pay like the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, because it would be silly to wave your 12-inch tablet at an Apple Pay terminal. Instead the NFC will be available to easily pair wireless accessories to the iPad.

Leaked iPad Pro Case Reveals Multiple Ports and Stereo Speakers

Sonny Dickson has published several images of an alleged iPad Pro case that reveal more details about the rumored tablet's design. The iPad Pro is expected to look a lot like the iPad Air, except it will measure somewhere around 12.2 to 12.9 inches, and feature a few tweaks such as stereo speakers.

iPad Pro Case

The case acquired by Sonny Dickson features cutouts for two ports, but it is unknown if they are for a Lightning connector or USB-C. One port is located at the bottom of the device and the other is on its side. The stereo speakers will be located at the top and bottom of the slate, and the camera will remain in the same place as the current iPad design.
