The purported 12.9-inch iPad Pro can multitask, runs apps side-by-side

Apple catches up with Samsung with the purported multitask-capable 12.9-inch iPad Pro

We've been hearing about the 12.9-inch iPad Pro for what feels like years now, but as we inch closer to the Apple media event on September 9, it looks like the larger-than-life, professional-grade iPad Pro could be unveiled.


According to the latest rumors from 9to5Mac, the iPad Pro will be capable of running full-sized, portrait-orientated apps side-by-side when the iPad Pro is held in landscape. Right now, the iPad Air 2 only supports side-by-side multitasking with scaled down apps, so if the iPad Pro is capable of this, it would be another feature that brings Apple closer to Samsung.

Inside of the iPad Pro, we can expect the aforementioned 12.9-inch screen which we're sure will run a whacky, not-so-normal resolution while there'll be 64GB of storage for the base model. This is a good change, since it has the 'Pro' moniker, while the iPad Pro will also reportedly arrive in a 128GB model for those hungry for storage.
