    Im not so imaginative to speculate about the new iPad. what could be the Pro feature?
    Pls don't say the size. On Macs its the Power and the GPU.
    Is there a new OS coming? Anything between iOS and MacOS, a meantime solution(replacement) for the next iOS?
    Or is the Pro just marketing?

    PS. i would love to see a device like the surface pro from apple

    Yes, yes it is. Same as any other 'Pro' device.

    I have been hearing about the iPad Pro for so long I do not even care anymore. Apple better hurry as the new MicroSoft Surface Pro 4 is due out soon.

    not quite. we can whitewash the Pro on Macs. We get more than 2 Cores and a real GPU ;)

    Pro is just what rumour sites and speculators are calling the new larger ipad. IMO it's unlikely to be called that when released by Apple. I think ipad plus is probably far more likely. Look at the slight differences between the iphone 6 and 6plus and I think you'll get a better idea of what to expect. The biggest selling point is going to be the increased size, I know you don't want to hear that, but IMO that's what you're going to get.

    Having said that there will likely be other things such as stylus support and possibly USB C to help differentiate further, but the main thing is going to be that it has a bigger screen.

    There could be 2 ways of looking at it, 1 - Apple intend to make specs higher than the normal iPad's and add more features 2 it and that's why the Pro name, OR it could be a bigger iPad with IOS 9 multitasking and that's it and it will be called the iPad Plus. Personally i think multitasking would be great on a bigger iPad. The most reliable (which isn't saying much) of the Apple Analysts Ming-Chi Kuo has released a report that says the iPad Pro will have a force touch stylus.

    IPad Plus has a terrible ring to it.

    Don't give up your day job...

    I don't disagree, I think that calling the larger iphone "plus" is awful too. I still don't believe that it will be called the ipad pro though, and I'm pretty sure that my other comments will be valid. There won't be much difference apart from the size.

    And if it is just a larger iPad, I'm good with that though I suspect it will be more.

    One thing that I do expect is that the price will be more than $100-$200 more (over an iPad).

    We'll see...

    This. Be careful with the rumors of a new product guys, just remember how the iPhone 5C was described as a low cost phone with low price while the final result was an iPhone 5 and high price.

    Bigger screen, optimised OS, A9X, 4GB RAM, dedicated video memory, pro software, stylus support, mouse/trackpad support to name a few. Just my ideas. Probably expecting too much though.

    The "Pro" stands for "Prohibited'! After you purchase one you see how "Prohibited" it is for actual "Pro" usage! :cool:

    I'm guessing you had this 'great' line to bash the pro with. You thought to yourself 'I'm going to get so many likes, if only I could find the perfect topic to use it in.' So you went into the graveyard and dug up this old topic.

    Don't guess, there is a 50% chance you are wrong. And in this case indeed you are!
