iPad Pro details revealed in iOS 9 code

iPad Pro details revealed in iOS 9 code

Ever since the demise of Steve Jobs, Apple has become something of a leaky sieve.  One of Jobs’ great triumphs was to keep the tech industry guessing as to what he would reveal on the stage. Rumours were rife of course, but the eventual announcement was always something of a surprise. Not so anymore, if it isn’t leaked images or revealed details, it’s clever people picking apart bits of code. At WWDC a few weeks ago Apple announced the release of iOS 9 later this year. It’s already available to developers, so the coding has been scrutinised and various details have emerged. One is that iOS 9 will accommodate higher resolution screens than iOS 8. The iPad Pro has been rumoured for some time now, supposedly bringing a larger screen size to the iPad family. iOS 9 suggests that it will have a resolution of 2732×2048. If the rumours are correct, and in a post-Jobsian world they often are, then the iPad Pro will have a 12.9″ screen, producing a pretty unexciting resolution of 263 pixels per inch. For an iPad this is higher than previously available, but it is still low compared to the leading Android tablets. The PPI and the ‘new’ multitasking function built into iOS 9 means that two applications will be able to run side by side. iOS 9 will be released later this year, so any iPad Pro is likely to emerge then.
