Width of the iPad Pro is the same as the height of the iPad Air, so you can run iPad Air apps with additional space to the side.

The name is really funny TBH

3D Touch makes photos, emails, Messages, and other stuff pop up in the display, with a kind of bokeh effect around stuff in the background. It really looks amazing
As expected the Taptic engine is coming to the 6S.
Mini-tap and full-tap are different kinds of buzzes, lasting 10 and 15 milliseconds, respectively.
