Tim Cook dishes on the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil in new interview

Apple CEO Tim Cook has given a new interview to the U.K.'s The Independent in which he discusses Apple's upcoming iPad Pro at length. Particularly, Cook spoke about the new levels of productivity enabled not only by the iPad Pro's size and power, but also the new Apple Pencil.

Cook says that the Pencil is more than a stylus, which compliments, rather than replaces, touching with a finger. From The Independent:

"Well, we didn't really do a stylus, we did a Pencil. The traditional stylus is fat, it has really bad latency so you're sketching here and it's filling the line in somewhere behind. You can't sketch with something like that, you need something that mimics the look and feel of the pencil itself or you're not going to replace it. We're not trying to replace finger touch, we're complementing it with the Pencil."

Cook says that he hopes to attract a lot of PC users with the iPad Pro, particularly those that have never used an Apple product. The iPad Pro goes on sale on Wednesday, November 11, and arrives in stores later in the week.
