The new Pro, which Apple will be unveiled in November, is being marketed as the opposite of a toy, however. Just like Microsoft's Surface tablets, Apple is targeting high-end creatives who also want a portable device.
AppleInsider noted that Apple appears to have created a new feature, described as a "tooth" feel on the screen. The "teeth" make it feel like you are drawing on a textured surface, such as a piece of paper, as opposed to glass. This is unlike any other tablet on the market and gives designers a more familiar surface to work with. Apple has never officially demoed this feature.
The reaction of the designers shows that the iPad Pro, and its associated Pencil, are ideally suited to the drawing. When the Pencil is in use, the screen shuts off from other input to avoid accidentally taps.
The Disney designers took to drawing popular characters, such as Mickey Mouse, to test the tablet.
