iPad Pro 9.7 or nah?

For all of you Apple lovers out there I’m sure you are just like me and keep track of any events that come along and of course recently Apple just released the iPad Pro 9.7 inch as well as a few other things.

I mean for starters, what is there not to love about this new iPad Pro… let’s just break it down why don’t we.

  • Smaller than the 12.9 inch Pro ( 1 pound vs 1.57 and 9.7 inches vs 12.9 )
  • Four sets of speakers instead of 2 like the iPad Air 2
  • Wide color and true tone display
  • A9X Chip
  • 12 mp camera (Record 4K Video)
  • Smart connector (keyboard)
  • Apple Pencil

Just from all that it already sounds better than anything else.. all the perks of the big 12.9 inch iPad Pro all at a much more manageable size, what else could you want?

Why don’t we jump in and see what Apple is really offering here.

So the first new thing is the True Tone Display.

Basically it seems like the iPad’s display adjust depending on the type of lighting and environment you are in to make it more natural for the user. I think I’ll approve of this new feature!

Next up the A9X Chip.

I would say just from the little excerpt on the website this seems like a major upgrade from the previous chip. With up to 1.8 times the CPU performance of iPad Air 2, the A9X chip delivers incredible responsiveness. I think the only thing they fail to mention is how the iPad Pro 9.7 only has 2GB of RAM while the 12.9 has it doubled at 4GB. So it could pose some limitation for those who would use the iPad for more difficult multitasking rather than having Safari and Word open.

How could it get any better? Smart Keyboard.

Apple created a keyboard that is unbelievably thin and can even be a cover for the iPad. I think the Smart Connector is fantastic. There are no cords or pairing necessary, all you have to do is attach and start typing. It could not be easier to use.

And the Apple Pencil tops it off! 

I don’t think I even need to explain this one any more than the picture down below does. Apple managed to take the century old pencil and turn it into an electronic masterpiece. It honestly does not get much better than this!
