Steve Troughton-Smith, after initially fiddling around with the all new WatchOS 2 for the Apple Watch, has now shifted his gaze on iOS 9 and has already made some interesting discoveries regarding the new UIKeyboard that seems to confirm the existence of the much speculated iPad Pro. The discovery relates to the internals of iOS 9 around the UIKeyboard class in the iOS SDK, more specifically, it relates to show the keyboard gets handled and displayed by iOS when a certain action is called, allowing the keyboard to be presented on the screen.
A tweet by Troughton-Smith stated that the new keyboard within iOS 9 scaled to a much larger size on the iPad as compared to what we are used to see on earlier versions of iOS. Furthermore, the new keyboard in iOS 9 also has the capability to change the layout of its keys dramatically depending on which device it is being run on. The large scaled keyboard, hence indicates towards a larger 12.9 inch iPad Pro that will be specifically aimed at professional users, education sector and even business sector.
1366x1024pt for an iPad Pro at least means it won't just be a 'scaled iPad', but software can take advantage of that new space— Steve T-S (@stroughtonsmith) June 15, 2015
