iPad Pro Vs. 9.7 Inch iPad Pro Embarking On A New Journey

Jun 09, 2017 04:41 PM EDT


Apple has finally launched the much-awaited successor to the 9.7 inch iPad Pro. The new iPadPro disclosed at WWDC 2017 is making headlines already. Although a tad bigger at 10.5 inches, the new iPad Pro is still sleek and elegant.

According to the official Apple newsroom, both the 10.5 inch and the new 12.9 inch iPad Pro feature stunning a display while still retaining a powerful chip underneath. The 9.7 inch iPad Pro is a smaller and well-balanced tablet; the 10.5 inch iPad, on the other hand, has slightly increased its dimensions and weighs 30 grams more.

The 10.5 inch iPad Pro offers a stunning Retina display with a high resolution of 2224x1668 pixels, as reported by End gadget. The older iPad Pro offered a much lower resolution. Apple's true tone display, fingerprint resistance, and anti-reflective coating are available for both these devices. The new iPad Pro's features a new technology called ProMotion which offers a much smoother content.

The hardware under the hoods has undergone a much-expected change. While the older 9.7 inch iPad Pro had an A9X chip with an M9 coprocessor, the new iPad Pro are powered by the advanced A10X Fusion chip. This 64-bit chip houses six CPU cores and twelve GPU cores. Already flaunted to be the fastest chip in today's market, this is certainly an improvement over the last generation.

While the 9.7 inch iPad Pro had somewhat similar camera specifications to the iPhone 6S, it makes sense for the newer one to be based on the new iPhone 7. A 12 mp snapper on the rear with af/1.8 aperture offers optical image stabilization for better video recording. The front camera has been bumped up to 7 megapixels and is capable of shooting at 1080p, unlike the previous model.

With iOS 11, a few months away, the new iPad's will surely be on the receiving end of this major update. All in all, the 10.5 inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pro is a significant update from the older iPad Pro.
