Apple just introduced a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, a new tablet of “normal size” that seems not an update of the iPad Air 2, if not the first of a series of tablets more premium with better specifications. As tablet that also includes the word “Pro”, this new iPad shares the design of the 12.9-inch model that was presented in September 2015.
Of the first things that draw attention to see the new iPad, though it was something we already knew, it is that it includes a flash for photos. Until now, take pictures with a tablet of the apple was not the best idea in the world, since it did not go too well unless the scene was very well lighted. But, failing to make the first tests, add a flash could do that we could rely on our iPad to take pictures and record videos.
9.7-inch iPad Pro screen is 40% less reflective than the iPad Air 2 while 25% brighter. On the other hand, uses a new True Tone technology that makes it the best screen ever used on an iPad, including the iPad Pro that was introduced last September. As we expected, this new iPad Pro “mini” will have 4 speakers, which will significantly improve the sound of the iPad Air 2, and nothing to say iPad 4 and earlier.
Camera with Flash
In a nutshell, the iPad Pro 9.7 “will have the same camera as the iPhone 6s, including Flash True Tone, 12MP camera, recording 4K and flash retina, which shine any scene that we can imagine.
