Trivia

  • The announcement of the iPad Pro took place on the same date the iPad mini 4 was released.
  • The high end iPad Pro models feature the largest screens of all iPad models.
  • This is the first iPad to have a powered magnetic connection called the Smart Connector for attachable keyboards, such as the Smart Keyboard, and other accessories.
  • In the YouTube video "Angry Grandpa destroys iPad Pro", a first generation iPad Pro battery releases smoke when destroyed with a hammer. This has not necessarily been duplicated in other instances where iPads have been destroyed.
