And while Cupertino remains as tight lipped as ever about the device, we've managed to gather quite a lot on the fabled tablet so far. The iPad Pro will be catering to the professional sector and will come with a custom stylus that should correspond to Apple's very own Force Touch technology that is also expected to make the cut on the device.
