Former Apple Supremo Steve Jobs left a huge impact on the company and the tech world. So much so that when Apple goes against one of his ethos, the company is lambasted as if it should hang on every word Jobs said. A great example of this is the fact that Jobs was not particularly enamoured with the idea of a large screen stylus packing device, something Apple are now going to make this year.

In 2010 when Jobs was launching the original iPad, he attacked previous tablets by saying, "if you see a stylus, they blew it". The company is clearly going against Jobs' vision if it will build an iPad Pro, not necessarily a bad thing.

Given that it's more precise than a person's fingers, a stylus can be more convenient to use than the combination of keyboard and mouse in some cases. Therefore, we believe Apple's stylus will improve the user experience of 12.9-inch iPad," KGI Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo said..

"We don't think all users will need a stylus initially. Coupled with its unfavourable cost structure, high selling prices may turn consumers off if the 12.9-inch iPad is always bundled with it," Kuo said. "We therefore expect the stylus to be an optional accessory before sufficient user feedback is received.
