    "So how do you attach the smart keyboard to the iPad Pro. If you look closely, there are three new circles on the side of the iPAd Pro. New connector technology called the Smart Connecter. Carries power and data and connects magnetically."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:29:11 PM
    "Software in iOS 9 automatically adapts and changes because it knows you want to use the smart keyboard."
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:29:16 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:29:20 PM
    "Let's talk about drawing."
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:29:27 PM
    Ah- those circles on side weren't buttons: it was a magnetic Smart Connector, carries power and data, iOS 9 adapts and uses peripheral. Wonder what other peripherals will arrive next.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:29:31 PM
    "Customers have created amazing works of art, drawing on their iPads with their fingers."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:29:48 PM
    "But iPad Pro is going to enable new classes of applications that require even greater precision than was available before."
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:29:49 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:29:55 PM
    Keyboard looks great, but very familiar to what's out there from Microsoft. That's not a bad thing at all.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:30:04 PM
    "We're so happy to introduce to you another accessory, especially for the iPad Pro."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:30:06 PM
    Called Apple Pencil
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:30:12 PM
    A stylus. Hell must have frozen over. haha
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:30:16 PM
    Time for a video
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:30:24 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:30:24 PM
    Apple Pencil: so I guess it's not a "stylus"
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:30:40 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:31:07 PM
    "When you're using the pencil, the system scans twice as often,"
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:31:19 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:31:29 PM
    "Can press lightly or harder to get a bolder stroke."
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:31:33 PM
    More accuracy, responsive sensors notice position, force, tilt. This seems like direct shot to any Wacom tools
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:31:39 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:31:41 PM
    "Signals emitted from two places in the tip let make shaded strokes"
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:31:50 PM
    Graphic designers, sound off: does this tempt you?
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:31:56 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:32:20 PM
    Has its own battery, but recharges via Lightning directly w iPad Pro.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:32:20 PM
    While its battery lasts for hours of use, a Lightening adapter lets you recharge by plugging directly into the iPad Pro
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:32:30 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:32:43 PM
    "It delivers something extraordinary. Precision that actually gives you the ability to touch a single pixel"
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:32:45 PM
    Existing capacitive stylus options really lacked accuracy: this helps for serious use.
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:32:46 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:32:46 PM
    Ok video is done
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:32:55 PM
    Schiller back up
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:33:01 PM
    It...does look kind of like a pencil.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:33:02 PM
    "The Apple Pencil is absolutely amazing."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:33:19 PM
    "They've done a remarkable job. Customers are going to feel it."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:33:30 PM
    Apple's built-in apps will work with it. Mail"
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:33:42 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:33:44 PM
    "Going to see new applications from developers that take advantage of this new iPad display"
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:34:04 PM
    "Applications we've not seen before, like this, called uMake, a design specifically for iPad that takes advantage of display and pencil"
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:34:06 PM
    Works with new Notes app, in Mail, and with other apps. Procreate, YouMake (new app designed for iPad). So much will this cost?
  • James Martin 9/9/2015 5:34:10 PM
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:34:19 PM
    "We've been lucky enough to have a few developers come in and look at the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil."
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:34:21 PM
    Time for demos
  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:34:27 PM
    Lots of iPad Pro accessories...hope these aren't too expensive.
