It's been a bumper week for iPad fans, with Apple revealing the new M4 iPad Pro, iPad Air and Apple Pencil Pro. The latter might not look hugely different to its predecessor, but inside it's a different story. A bunch of new sensors mean a bunch of new inputs, and the level of creative control afforded to creatives could be game-changing. Indeed, with the new iPad Air and iPad Pro supporting Apple Pencil Pro, both models are looking like shoo-ins for our best iPad for drawing roundup.

I got to grips (literally) with the new Apple Pencil Pro at Apple's first ever global event at its London headquarters this week, experiencing first-hand how the incredible new features can be used with a variety of creative apps, from Procreate to Photomator. I'll be bringing you my full review of the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil Pro in the coming weeks, but for now here are the the features I was most impressed by during this week's demos. For the lowdown on the previous model, check out my Apple Pencil 2 review.
