Apple has launched a new version of its best-selling iPad tablet - the iPad Pro.

The iPad Pro comes with a larger 12.9-inch screen - a third bigger than the previous iteration - as well as a bigger keyboard.

Apple senior VP of marketing Phil Schiller said the Pro was designed for business users as an alternative to laptops.

"[It] lets you do things you can't do with a notebook," Schiller said. "With a bigger screen iPad, your TV shows and movies are more cinematic. Games we play are more immersive and powerful."
