You probably heard that Apple has announced a new iPad Pro at the event. You heard correctly. But what is different about this one in comparison to the original iPad Pro? A very valid question. The new tablet packs a 9.7 inch screen in comparison to the larger 12 inch iPad Pro. This smaller design was made to attract PC users to a more portable device.
When comparing screens, the 9.7 inch iPad Pro has a 2048×1536 screen resolution in comparison to the 12 inch iPad Pro, which has a 2732×2048 screen resolution. The newly announced iPad Pro boasts to have the most advanced display with the brightest screen as well as the least reflective in the world. That’s quite a statement! It also uses similar color space to the digital cinema industry, meaning that it has up to 25 percent greater color saturation than any previous iPad model, including the original iPad Pro. This translates into a more vivid and colorful screen.
The screen is everything when it comes to tablets and spending long hours can strain your eyes. That’s why Apple has introduced a True Tone display to the 9.7 inch iPad Pro, which makes reading and interacting with the screen much more comfortable for your eyes. Additionally, it comes with four speaker audio, one in each corner. This will deliver a much more complete audio experience. But when it comes to work, battery life is vital and the new iPad Pro comes with an A9X chip that powers the iPad’s battery life up to 10 hours.
The 9.7 inch iPad Pro also comes with a Smart Keyboard that is designed for its smaller sized screen. You don’t need a cable to connect it; all you need is to attach it and start using it. Simple as that. It comes with an Apple Pencil as well that acts similar to a Mouse for a PC. It is very smooth and brings the PC experience to life on the new small tablet. In terms of camera, the 9.7 inch iPad Pro houses a 12 megapixel iSight camera and a 5 megapixel FaceTime HD camera, while the 12 inch iPad Pro has an 8 megapixel iSight camera and a 1.2 megapixel FaceTime HD camera.
Weighing at 0.96 pound, it is one of the lightest tablets in the world. The new 9.7 inch iPad Pro comes in 4 colors: Silver, Gold, Space Gray, & Rose Gold. Pricing starts from $599 for 32GB, $749 for 128GB, & $899 for 256GB. While the 12 inch iPad Pro starts price range at $799 for 32GB. The smaller version is clearly cheaper and better and we highly recommend it. You can start pre-ordering on March 24th.
