Apple iPad Pro to be unveiled at next week's event?
A week from today, Apple will introduce the Apple iPhone 6s and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus. But 9to5 Mac says that a trusted source has told them that also getting unveiled at the event will be the Apple iPad mini 4, and the long-awaited large screened Apple iPad Pro. While a third version of the Apple iPad Air is in the works, that tablet isn't expected to be released until 2016.

The Apple iPad Pro has internal code names of J98/J99, and the slate is said to be directed toward power users. It will have iOS 9.1 pre-installed, which means it will offer special capabilities related to Siri and the Notification Center that only iPad Pro users will have access to. There will also be a stylus based Force Touch system available for the long-rumored slab. Two speakers will be found on both the top and bottom of the iPad Pro, for improved stereo sound. While the size of the screen was not mentioned, most are expecting Apple to grace the tablet with a 12.9-inch display.

The Apple iPad mini 4 will feature an upgraded chipset and will be capable of running split-screen apps. Both cameras are expected to get a bump. Design-wise, the iPad mini 4 will be thinner than the current iPad mini model.

With a week before the event is to take place, there is still plenty of time for some more leaks. Keep checking in oftenj.

I'm eager to see how they take advantage of the larger screen.

I hope they add 4GB of RAM so it can be a multitasking beast. Also. I hope iOS 9 doesn't have the same amount of bugs like iOS 8 did.

I'm hoping that too. I doubt they'll give it that much ram :(

They'll probably give it 3 at the most.

Yep agreed. I can't wait to see it in person. Is there an Apple Store where you live? We have 4 in Vegas.

I don't want either. I have an iPad air 2, but I'd choose the iPad pro over the spro4, if I were looking.

Ummm. Another row of icons, maybe two more rows. It's IOS, the OS doesn't take advantage of anything in favour of performance and being light....

I need those bezels - most of the time I'm holding it when working on it in the field, I'm not against the baseless idea - I just think it's gonna be awkward to use.

I'm still more curious than excited about this event, but hoping split view slide over, and picture in picture make it to the 6S+

Please explain. What demographic wants a 12 inch tablet that does exactly what today's iPad does? Only bigger? Samsung ready jumped there and the sales were low. Because a Note Pro isn't worth $800, when you can get Windows PC. Consider Apple asking at least 849 likely vs a Surface Pro. Which one is going to sell better? Because Apple is going to push them all.into buying Windows versions. Yes it will sell, it's Apple; but I don't see more than maybe 1M. It's just to big.

If it is made by Apple, their followers will line up to buy it. If they made the iShoeLace, people would buy that too.

Look if Apple made the 1st spro1 or more so the spro3 then it will have been the best thing from the 1st iPhone and sold like 30m, now the media will try and sell them the bigger crap iPad like its a spro3 and not say the the spro3 is best or say the spro4 is better and so on In Any reviews as they have no stock and I be thinking will just use apps to cover there back

haha why do you care how much they sell? you aren't gettin a percentage? all in all this device is nothing more than a bigger ipad with a pen an new version of iOS. there is nothing "pro" about it.

I wonder if it will have a splits teen feature better than a Note Pro. The Note Pro 12 did sell all that well. Why pay $800 for limited apps when you can have Windows for less and have better. I don't think a 12" tablet is really mobile. Unless I'm in the car or hotel, I don't take my Note Pro anywhere much. I just don't see the point uses it ran OSX. Better off with a Surface Pro.

It's probably gonna have a really good one because of iOS 9 as well as native app's simpler UI. (I said really good, not a better one)
