Just curious if anyone knows an answer - both the Retina iPad and Retina Mini are virtual 1024x768 devices.

What's the deal with the Pro - are UI elements the same physical size as the normal Retina iPad, or larger / smaller?

That's a really good question. I use responsive elements in development now so I don't really think about virtual resolution since vector graphics scale to whatever size the screen is. Things that are pixel dependent such as photos and videos however would need some adjustment most likely.

hmm, well it's the same ppi as the normal retina iPad, so I'll assume it's just more real estate, at the same UI element size.

The iPad Pro has the same pixel density and UI scaling factor (@2x), so the size of most icons and UI components is the same, but the surface is obviously larger. However, the iPad Pro does require larger app icons for the home screen (link). Otherwise, modern iOS applications compiled with size classes or universal layouts should work without modification.
