In this demo, I take you through a physical description and use of the iPad pro, smart keyboard, and the Apple pencil.

The Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil are sold separately to the iPad Pro.

I note with the Smart Keyboard that to perform the Quick Nav VoiceOver command for Perform Action, that it is Left/Up/Right, not Up/Down as on a standard BT keyboard due to the moulding of the Up and Down keys in to one key.  In addition, as the Smart Keyboard has no Escape key, Control+Option+Accent performs the Escape VoiceOver function (this can be used on BT keyboards as well).

With both the touch screen and the keyboard, I demo how to use Split View which you can activate using VoiceOver from the Status Line by a three finger flick to the left.

In the demo, I use the Apple Pencil for the hand writing mode for VoiceOver which can be turned on and accessed by the VO Rotor: Settings, General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Rotor: Hand Writing.

Note – to pair the Apple Pencil to the iPad pro, just plug it in to the lightning port, this is also where you charge the Pencil as well.
