There seems to be some good news for people waiting for the iPad Pro. Rumors have it that a recent filing at the US Patent and Trademark Office clearly hints on the functionality of the slate, which may come with a digital input stylus, something that was not found earlier in any device of this category. The reports of Apple Insider also have it that the stylus powered with 3D sensing can offer support to multiple users as well as multitasking activities.
Even though there is no official confirmation so far, the reports indicate the stylus to feature pressure sensor as well as grip sensor performing dedicated functions. While the news about the stylus has overjoyed iPad fans, it has surely warned the Surface Pen of Microsoft about the tough competition that it might be facing in the coming days.
Though the concept of pen was earlier rejected by Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, it has gained a huge demand in the present market as competitors are using this feature to increase their customer base.
By adding the stylus or pen, the company can easily make a better grip on the enterprise, prosumer as well as academic market. The pen or stylus, which has already created a great hype may launch in simple form sometimes later this year and with advanced technologies in the next year, reports Kuo.
