Refocusing Apple regularly presents the iPad as the future of personal computing, claiming its portable form factor, accessibility and security make it a better choice than regular computers.

The Cupertino, California-based company reported last week that iPad revenue rose 14 percent to $4.8 billion in the fiscal fourth quarter, with an 11 percent increase in the number of units sold. Keeping this in mind Apple has upgraded the device's capabilities in successive years for the use of business and professional users.

We can also expect to see the new Animoji being offered as well.
