The iPad Pro, revealed during Wednesday’s Apple event, is the most powerful iOS device ever made, and “the biggest iPad news since the iPad,” Tim Cook said from the stage. The iPad Pro also has two new accessories: the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

The iPad Pro measures 12.9 inches on the diagonal. Half the width of the iPad Pro is exactly the height of the iPad Air 2—a perfect geometry for running apps side by side. With 5.6 million pixels in a 2732x2048 resolution, the iPad Pro has a higher resolution than the 15-inch MacBook Pro with retina display.

The iPad Pro boasts a A9X chip, twice the memory of A8X in iPad Air 2 and its 1.8x faster. “This is desktop-class performance,” said Phil Schiller.
