The iPad Pro was unveiled on Monday, showcasing a smaller size, which has been among the most popular features from Apple, having sold 200 million of units previously.
The latest iPad Pro comes with a 9.7-inch screen and weighs only one pound, giving the Apple users the lowest reflectivity. With its “True Tone Display” feature, the screen can be adjusted to match the color temperature of the ambient light. Also, the new Night Shift feature, from iOS 9.3, can remove the blue from display to help the users to sleep better.
The new iPad Pro tablet has the ability to capture a 4K video from its 12-mp camera, along with the use of the retina flash, just like the all new iPhone SE. But aside from these new features, there is still more, which Apple has put a focus on during its launch presentation held on Monday.
With the new iPad Pro, the Pencil stylus will be supported and a smaller smart keyboard is offered to make this new device become more encompassing for the users.
Citing a quote from Pixar CCo John Lasseter, Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller recalled Lasseter’s rant about having an accessory like the Pencil to provide more credibility in the world of animation.
The new iPad Pro is powered by a 64-bit A9X chip, including LTE-Advanced, as well the “Hey Siri” feature and the four speakers for the audio. It runs the new iOS 9.3, and as announced earlier by Apple, the iOS 9 has been adopted across the total of 80 percent of all iOS devices, contrary to Android Marshmallow which is only being used in two percent of all the Android devices.
iPad Pro will be available starting at $599 for models with 32GB; $749 for 128GB; and $899 for 256GB. Pre-ordering will start on Thursday; the new tablet is expected to hit the market on March 31.
