    Or is it just for Pro's? Has anybody tested it?

    I would also like to know. I'm inclined to think that only the iPad Pro models will qualify for the multitasking features, despite the new iPad only launching a couple of months ago.

    A user on Reddit said the Air 2 has all the Pro features announced today (barring Apple Pencil stuff) so I'd bet it does.

    I'm excited they didn't drop us from the new features. I was seriously considering upgrading to a Pro, and still might with a decent Best Buy discount, but if my Air 2 has all the latest features I might stick with it until the 2nd gen 10.5 or 3rd gen 12.9.

    Of course it will. Just won't have the Markup and note taking features available on the Pro versions.

    They'll probably have it. Just need to use your fingers (or a cheap, inaccurate capacitive stylus) instead of the Apple Pencil.

    I have an active Bluetooth stylus (Adonit pixel) which was not cheap - £70. I doubt I could use that instead of the Apple Pencil though.
