Mac Format - - UPGRADE! -

Ap­ple sur­prised and de­lighted us all when it an­nounced the iPad Pro last Septem­ber, but it has left the rest of its line-up largely un­changed - apart from the in­tro­duc­tion of the iPad mini 4, which fi­nally put the small, but per­fectly formed 7.9-inch iPad on par with the full-size model again.

That’s good news in iOS 9, be­cause both sizes of iPad can take ad­van­tage of its new (iPad-only) mul­ti­task­ing fea­tures, en­abling you to slide a sec­ond app into view (say, to check email) with­out leav­ing the one you’re work­ing in. The iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro have a Split View mode, so you can work in two apps side by side. Those three mod­els also fea­ture Touch ID, Ap­ple’s finger­print sen­sor. Ru­mours sug­gest that Ap­ple will up­date the iPad Air soon, pos­si­bly with an A9 pro­ces­sor and 4GB of RAM.
