Features of iPad Pro & Apple Pencil

Today, we’ll show you some of the cool things you can do with iPad Pro.

 

Turn your iPad Pro into a mini MacBook with Smart Keyboard

Smart Keyboard connects magnetically onto the edge of your iPad Pro. There is no need for Bluetooth pairing, and the keyboard draws power from the iPad itself. But there’s no need to worry about extra battery drain; Smart Keyboard is as efficient as it is ergonomic.

To connect:

To fold in typing mode:

To fold in drawing mode:

You’ll want the keys facing under, instead of up against the back of the iPad.

To fold in cover mode:

Smart Keyboard knows when you’re using it (when it’s connected magnetically to the groove just above the keyboard), and when you’re not, so the instant you lift the iPad from the magnetic groove, any accidental keyboard presses will not register to your iPad. Smart, Keyboard!

 

Pair and charge your Apple Pencil

 

Use Apple Pencil to annotate Microsoft Word documents

Apple Pencil integration is built into the Office apps, which you can download for free, and they work well with an Office 365 subscription. Simply open a document and tap on the Draw tab:

Once you select a tool, the Word app will allow you to draw anywhere on the document with Apple Pencil. And don’t worry about resting your hand on the touch screen while you draw. The iPad Pro knows when you’re resting your palm on the display, and when you are and aren’t using the Pencil. So you can scroll with your finger while still in Draw mode, and it won’t think you’re using the Pencil. No accidental lines!

The Draw tab is the same across all Office apps, including Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

 

Use Apple Pencil for digital illustration

Adobe Sketch is a free app from the developer of the Adobe Creative Suite. You can use the basic tools for free, or pay for a Creative Cloud license to utilize the app to its full potential.

There are plenty more Adobe apps on the App Store, as well as other drawing apps from various developers. You can even draw and sketch in the Apple Notes app.
