The iPad Pro- Apple’s first tablet to use a stylus, or is it?

Apple finally went against Steve’s demand by making a stylus for one of their tablets.

Clement Mok- Early Macintosh Who’s Who

One of the coolest parts of Apple’s history is the characters who played important roles back in the company’s early days. I love connecting the dots.
