“Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has been in London to visit app developer Touchpress. At the developer’s Marylebone headquarters he spoke exclusively to the Independent,” David Phelan reports for the Independent. “The new product is the iPad Pro, a big-screened tablet which goes on sale this week. ‘The thing that’s interesting about this is that the hardware, combined with the software, especially with features such as split view multitasking, means that this iPad now appeals to virtually everybody. You can marry it with a keyboard cover that turns it into a laptop replacement, say. But it’s also an incredible entertainment device with a first-class audio experience along with the immersive Retina display. And now you have the Pencil, so that it can replace the sketch pad.'”
“Along with the Pencil, there’s a keyboard cover. Cook says it’s different from rival keyboards because with none of those would you say it ‘came from the same parent’ as the tablet itself,” Phelan reports. “‘Now all of a sudden you have a keyboard that has been perfectly designed for the iPad, it’s integrated and then you’ve got the software with split view and it’s inherently very productive. I’m travelling with the iPad Pro and other than the iPhone it’s the only product I’ve got.'”
