Bloomberg has updated its Bloomberg Professional app for iOS with new iOS 9 optimizations including Split Screen mode and Picture-in-Picture support on the latest iPads. Bloomberg Professional is also optimized for the new 12.9″ iPad Pro display with native resolution to show more content on the screen, which the company says helps “deliver real-time data, comprehensive news, technical graphs, portfolio tracking and Instant Bloomberg (IB) to Bloomberg customers.”

Apple Pencil users can also take advantage of the new iPad Pro digital stylus with features that let you “annotate charts, notes and research documents and then share with individuals and teams through the message function MSG<GO>.”

The app requires a Bloomberg Anywhere account to access and unlock it, but includes a mobile version of Bloomberg’s terminal features for news rooms, investors, and other professionals, now at desktop-like size with the iPad Pro. Non-Bloomberg Anywhere subscribers can still use the free Bloomberg Business app for iPad.

Check out the full change log below:
