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."

The tablet will have 10 hours of battery life and is equipped with four speakers.

The basic model will cost $799 in the US, with UK pricing to be announced.
