Apple just announced the all-new 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Smaller than its 12-inch brother, but still just as powerful with even more features. The new iPad Pro features a Retina display with greater brightness, a wider color gamut, lower reflectivity, Night Shift mode, and True Tone display technology, an Apple first that dynamically adjusts white balance.
“iPad Pro is a new generation of iPad that is indispensable and immersive, enabling people to be more productive and more creative. It’s incredibly fast, extremely portable, and completely natural to use with your fingers, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. And now it comes in two sizes,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
The new iPad Pro packs incredible performance for a tablet weighing just under one pound. Inside you will find a 64-bit A9X chip that crushes most portable PCS, a four-speaker audio system that is twice as powerful than its predecessors, a new 12-megapixel iSight camera for snapping Live Photos and 4K video, a 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera, and faster wireless technologies than ever before.
Lastly, the new 9.7″ iPad Pro includes support of Apple’s breakthrough Apple Pencil, as well as their newly announced Smart Keyboard cover.
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro comes in silver, space gray, gold and a new rose gold metallic finish, and starts at $599 (US) for the 32GB with Wi-Fi model and $729 (US) for the 32GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model. And now, both iPad Pro sizes are available in offerings of 32GB, 128GB and a new 256GB capacity, the highest of any iOS device.
