All sorts of rumors and reports have been circulating about the Apple iPad Pro even though it’s a product that hasn’t been officially confirmed or even talked about by the company. According to a new report the 12.9-inch iPad is going to bring several features that haven’t been found on the company’s tablets before, such as Force Touch, Bluetooth stylus and even NFC (Near Field Communication).
The report claims that Apple is going to place an NFC radio inside the iPad Pro and while it seems unlikely that people will carry such a big tablet to pay for their coffee, it could come in handy for businesses that deploy this tablet, since they will be able to accept payments through NFC-backed services.
While deceased Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs was vehemently against the very idea of a stylus, the report goes on to say that an Apple-built Bluetooth stylus will be available for the iPad Pro.
The Force Touch feature that first came to light with the Apple Watch is already expected to find a place on the next-generation iPhone, now it’s being said that the iPad Pro is going to feature this technology as well.
The report doesn’t say when Apple plans on bringing this larger iPad to the market, and what it is planning to charge for it. Apple does have an event coming up recently but it seems unlikely that the iPad Pro will be unveiled there.
