iPad Pro 9.7


Surprisingly, iPad Pro 9.7 offers a better display and cameras as well as enhanced LTE capability, compared to its bigger brother.

The Design

The iPad Pro 9.7 shows off premium construction similar to that of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It is understandably lighter and slimmer at just 0.96 pounds and 6.1 millimetres respectively.

The ultra-slim tablet’s design makes it more practical for on-the-road usage. Like the iPad Pro, this 9.7-incher comes with an optional, custom-designed Smart Keyboard cover that lets you use it like a mini laptop.

The Display

Contrary to what one would ordinarily expect, the iPad Pro 9.7 comes with an improved 9.7-inch Retina display. The screen uses a new True Tone display technology which makes for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience by tuning white balance to match ambient lighting.

Apple says the display is 25% brighter than that of the iPad Air 2. It is also 40% less reflective. It supports Apple Pencil, offered as a separate accessory.

The Camera

The Apple iPad Pro 9.7 is fitted on the rear with a more powerful 12-megapixel iSight camera with Focus Pixels for speedy focusing.

The improved shooter boasts an f/2.2 aperture and 63MP panorama support, compared to the iPad Pro’s f/2.4 aperture and 43MP panorama support. True Tone flash debuts on an iPad with this tablet. The selfie snapper has also been improved to 5 megapixels and comes with Retina Flash.

Power and Performance

Apple hasn’t skimped on performance with its new iPad Pro Mini despite its super-slim profile. It is powered by a robust A9X processor based on third-generation 64-bit architecture.
