Apple's yearly developer conference was surprisingly full of new hardware, and the iPad Pro was one of the biggest recipients of an overdue upgrade.

Or, at least, a serious laptop alternative.
Swiping up brings up a multi-desktop mode, where multiple split-view app pairings can be left open like tabs and opened as needed.
It's not the same as adding extra panes or tabs, but it's close.
