In the latest Apple news, consumers can now get the latest tablets in two unique sizes. That decision alone isn’t difficult, but along with an upgrade in size, the new iPad Pro will have a wealth of cool features that you should know about. Here are five of them.
1. iPAD PRO THINKS THAT SIZE MATTERS
Despite what your significant other may say, size does matter. Apple agrees, which is why they gave you some options with the latest iPad Pro. The smaller version comes in at a handy 9.7 inches while the next step up is a whopping 12.9 inches. Yes, that doesn’t really seem like much, but the extra space on the larger addition really makes a difference depending on what you use it for.
2. FROM FIT TO FAT
It’s hard to watch tv without some news of a diet trend coming on. It’s safe to say we are a society obsessed with staying slim. Unfortunately, this mindset does not translate to our technology. The iPad Pro had to put on a few pounds for its latest role. As one can imagine, the larger screen size is to blame. The good news is that you’ll hardly notice it. The 9.7 inch comes in at just under a pound while the 12.9 sits at 1.57 pounds.
3. TRUE TONE DISPLAY
Whether you are an artistic genius or casual internet user, everyone appreciates a beautiful picture. Buyers of the 9.7-inch model iPad Pro can now enjoy Apple’s True Tone technology. It uses sensors to measure brightness and light temperature. The screen will then adjust automatically so the natural colors on the screen are not affected by your surrounds. For those that just want to read crappy news articles like this one, you might be better off with the 12.9-inch model as it does not have the True Tone quality.
4. BIGGER, FASTER, STRONGER
For those speed freaks out there, you may want to opt for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It’s faster in both CPU horsepower (yes, that’s a thing) as well as graphic processing. The 12.9 also has twice the amount of RAM with 4 GBs. Another unique feature of the 12.9 is that it has a USB 3 lighting port. No other iOS device has that. Users can now take advantage of the various USB 3 accessories that Apple offers.
5. AND NOW THE BAD NEWS
Usually, when talking about Apple products, it’s best to avoid prices. They certainly aren’t cheap, but on the other hand, Apple tends to deliver some quality products. The 9.7 inch iPad comes in at $599. That makes it the most expensive entry level iPad to date. In other news, the 12.9-inch model can be bought for $799. If you want to shell out more, the souped-up models sell for $949 (128 GB) and $1,099 (256 GB). A tad pricey, but seeing as these devices have the potential to replace a desktop, one can justify the purchase easily.
