The iPad Pro 2016 is now rumored to be released before the year ends, to compete with the newly-unveiled Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

What can users anticipate with this new Apple tablet and will it be able to live up to the expectations of fans and users?

Below are some of the rumored specifications and features of the upcoming tablet:

1. Bigger display

VC Post said the newest addition to the iPad family will have a 12.9-inch display, which is said to be 78 percent larger than the previous release.

Meanwhile, TechTimes added that the new tablet also "offers a display with a whopping 5.3 million pixels - higher than that of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display."

2. Longer battery life and ability to multitask

Mobile Tech Review noted that the iPad Pro has an "all-day 10-hour battery life," which promises efficiency to its users.

With the introduction of the new iPad, TechTimes said users can expect to display multiple applications all at the same time, to maximize the use of the device's large screen.

3. Processor

It was also added in the TechTimes report that the iPad Pro comes with the new A9X chip, which is "a pretty substantial 1.8x faster than the previous generation A8X chip - putting it in the same class as many desktop computer processors."

4. Smart keyboard

In addition, Mobile Tech Review said the new Smart Keyboard from Apple will "offer a full-sized keyboard in a thin, durable design so you can take it anywhere."

This technology is said to be sold separately for the device, and can be connected to the iPad Pro's Smart Connector port.

"[This will] eliminate the need for a separate battery, on/off switch or Bluetooth pairing. The Smart Keyboard is covered in custom woven fabric and features keys that provide the accuracy, stability and satisfying key feel of standard keyboards, but is also easily foldable and can transform into a Smart Cover. The Smart Keyboard also works seamlessly with new QuickType features in iOS 9 to make typing even faster and easier," added the same report.

5. Price and other features

Apple is believed to release the iPad Pro by November for $799. It also comes with a four-speaker system, multitasking features, optional Apple Pencil (a top-of-the-line stylus which can detect precise scribbles and angles), FaceTime camera and Wi-Fi compatibility.

It may just be weeks away before the iPad Pro becomes available in the market but fans are already very excited to get their hands on the alleged newest offering from Apple.
