A few days ago Apple introduced the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro during the March Keynote, a tablet with features very similar to the giant 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Many users do not end up opting for one iPad or another, so in this article we will make a comparison between both tablets.
One of the main differences of the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro from its “big brother” is the update of its iSight camera , which now offers users 12 megapixels, Flash True Tone, Live Photos support and 4K video recording.
But before buying a tablet, in addition to the hardware, you should also consider its design. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is specially designed to improve productivity in the professional sector, while the new iPad Pro is aimed at other users.
If you’re thinking of buying an iPad for video playback and web browsing, the 12.9″ iPad Pro will undoubtedly offer a better experience thanks to its resolution of 2,732 x 2,048 . On the other hand, the new 9.7″ iPad Pro with a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 is still an ideal alternative, and at a lower price. In addition, its screen has a wide range of colours, 25% more saturation and True Tone technology.
