The Pencil also features two new use gesture tools - tapping an idle iPad Pro with the Pencil automatically launches the Notes app, while tapping the Pencil itself twice allows users to switch between modes of interaction.

Apple is giving its iPad the most extensive upgrade since 2015, and just like the iPhone, the home button and headphone jack are gone.

This adapter exists because the new iPad Pro models do not have a headphone jack (#courage).

With this move, the new iPad Pros have a all-screen fronts with very thin bezels. The updated tablets include slimmer sides that make the displays look almost edge-to-edge, faster processors, an upgraded back camera, and Face ID for unlocking the device, making payments, and sending customized emojis. Corners on the display are now rounded as well.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook said the redesigned device would "push what you can do on a computer even further".

The new models are also notable for what they lack: a home button, headphone jack and the Lightning connector used on Apple mobile devices since 2012.

The iPad Pro holds an A12 X Bionic chip and is 90% faster.

The Apple Pencil has a set of default double-tap settings that we covered in our iPad overview, but developers have the option to customize the double tap action in their apps. It also features up to 1TB of internal flash storage, an increase from 512GB previously. The premium tablets now come in three sizes: a brand-new 11-inch model that starts at $799 (£769, AU$1,229); a redesigned 12.9-inch version that now starts at $999 (£969, AU$1,529); and the 10.5-inch model from 2017 that remains priced at $649 (£619, AU$979).
