Apple introduces power-packed iOS 11, wireless home speaker

Both new iPad Pros will be powered by Apple's latest A10X chip, which features a new six core CPU and a 12-core GPU.

Apple has taken the covers of its an overhauled iPad Pro, with the new version featuring a new screen size and more powerful innards.

The company said its App Store has so far paid out $70 billion to developers, of which 30 percent was made previous year.
