Apple iPad Pro set to be announced on September 9th, report claims

The next attempt at an awesome enterprise tablet unicorn is upon us

The Apple leak firehouse, it is open, and this latest report is a doozy: according to 9to5Mac, Apple plans to unveil the iPad Pro at next week's iPhone event — although really, at this point, we should be calling it the iPhone-iPad-TV-OS-One-More-Thing event.

The reported iPad Pro will start shipping in November after opening up for preorders sometime in October, 9to5Mac reports. It's expected to be larger than current models, geared toward power users and "support a Force Touch-based stylus." Siri will supposedly be optimized for enterprise, as will the Notification Center.

An enterprise-ready version of iPad has been long rumored, and Apple's recent partnerships with companies like IBM and Cisco only underscore these intentions. Apple has not yet responded to a request for comment on this report.

Oh, and lest iPad Mini feel left out: a new one of those is in the works, too, the report says.
