Apple's big news is that its new iPad is bigger. Apple took the wraps off the iPad Pro today at an event in San Francisco. The tablet's screen measures nearly 13-inches diagonally, which makes it bigger than any previous iOS device. That kind of screen space allows for a full-size on-screen keyboard. Apple executives claim the iPad Pro will outperform the majority of portable PCs. It's expected to be available in November starting at 800 dollars.
Apple also unveiled an accessory for the iPad Pro called the Apple Pencil. It's a high-tech stylus designed for precision drawing and writing.
Apple also revealed that new iPhones are on the way. Apple took the wraps off the iPhone 6S and the slightly larger iPhone 6S Plus. The devices have a pressure sensitive screen that allows for what Apple calls "3D Touch." The feature opens up more options for users who exert a little more pressure on the device when their finger's over an icon or a picture. The iPhone 6S will also take a few seconds of video whenever a picture is taken so that photos can seem to come alive with a touch.
Prices for the new phones will be comparable to previous generations, starting at about 200 dollars with a two-year contract. Preorders start this weekend, and they should be in stores on September 25th.
On top of all the new tech Apple announced they will be rolling out improvements to their Apple TV device. Apple showed off how the new Apple TV will have a revised touch-sensitive remote control. There will also be a new operating system that will enable users to find movies, music, games and apps via voice commands.
