Apple tried to make the line between tablet and computer even more invisible with the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro release in September 2015, Six months later, the 9.7-inch Ipad Pro
tries to do the same, but in the body of an iPad Air. The new model feels less fragile than the original Pro and is more portable. In general, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro has everything you'd expect from a tablet and more.
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is an iPad Pro camouflaged as iPad Air 2. Its has the same body as that of the iPad Air 2014 with a 9.7-inch display: not one millimeter more, not one ounce less. But this is not a flaw; it is an elegant device with aluminum casing and a slim silhouette that doesn't weigh a whole pound. However, if you look at it in detail, you can see a few differences. The most obvious is the color, the model is available in silver, space grey, gold and rose gold (however the Ipad Pro price
won't change). Plus, it also comes with the three metal bushings of the Smart Connector port that premiered in the original iPad Pro to connect the keyboard and other peripherals without relying on Bluetooth.
Unlike the Air, the Apple Ipad Pro
also has two additional speakers at the edges. It has the same four-speaker stereo sound system that the largest Pro and louder volume than its predecessors. The tablet auto-decides how to emit the sound depending on the orientation of the tablet, achieving an almost three-dimensional effect.
At first glance, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro's display doesn't seem to have changed much: it has the same size and resolution of the Retina (2048x1536 pixels) as the previous Air 2. But the improvements have nothing to do with the number of pixels, but they do with technology, the screen has greater color saturation, greater illumination and a surface that reflects less light than the Air. However, the great novelty is in the True Tone technology that debuts on the screen of this tablet; a concept similar to the True Tone flash of the cameras, which determines the temperature of the light emitted by the flash according to the ambient light and, in the case of the screen, is like having a white balance built at all times.
Many of the performance improvements in the new iPad came through a software update. And by combining software advances with Apple's most powerful A9X chip engine, they become efficiency machines. Despite the decrease in screen size, this iPad takes full advantage of split-screen functionality and multiple windows.
The tablet comes with the option to download the Microsoft Office suite which includes PowerPoint, Excel, Word and OneNote applications as well as several free Adobe apps. For video design and editing, it's even more comfortable than on a laptop because the tactile aspect allows controlling in more detail from the screen. Also, combined with the Apple Pencil it can be a more portable tool for artists or creative people. The touchscreen element also makes it more interactive when playing, as you can relate directly to the screen. A very convenient device, the Ipad Pro cost
is around USD 500.
The new Ipad Pro
is the first iPad with built-in flash and the first with a 12-megapixel camera on a screen that takes advantage of this pixel magnification. It has better colors, brightness and its own white balance with True Tone technology.
