About a year ago, Apple put the original iPad Pro on the market. Is was of a tablet long expected (almost two years from the first rumors) whose great contribution to the platform, in addition to Apple Pencil, was the size of its screen. It was also the most expensive to date iPad and although the specifications of the model rose significantly with respect to other iDevices, iOS continued to maintain the same face.
In TabletZona have been quite critical with the Pro concept incorporated into the iPad in the last generations.
