iPad Pro 2 is Here
A lot of you might be considering buying Apple's new iPad - the iPad Pro 9.7 edition. There are few things you should know before buying this smaller iPad or maybe you're choosing between this and a larger iPad Air 2. Here are some things you need to know about apple's new iPad Pro 9.7.
As TechRadar reports, Apple is shipping the model with just two gigabytes of RAM. Whereas, the larger iPad Pro 12.9 edition comes with 4GB. Now this can be explained by the difference in size, and the smaller iPad doesn't have as many pixels to push, but two gigabytes of RAM is exactly what came in the older iPad Air 2.
Not only did Apple reduce the amount of ram, but they also neutered the A9 X chip as well.
It's slightly underclocked versus the larger iPad Pro, and the graphical performance is where more of the difference it takes place at sixteen percent difference.
Now whether or not you'll see this in your usage is debatable, we'll have to wait and see.
It's a little disappointing that it has less performance now. Because of the new smart connector on the iPad Pro, 9.7 Apple has officially gone out and said that your old smart cover would no longer work. The magnets have been repositioned inside of the chassis so they recommend you don't use the old one as it could become unstable and you could drop your iPad as a result.
If you're not upgrading from an iPad Air 2, all of your old cases will still work.
However, Apple went even further by adding a true tone display, so nightshift changes your color temperature on your display but, Apple pushes this further by adding two sensors into the top of the iPad where they will now detect your ambience.
So the iPad Pro night shift display feature is even better. We'll be fine to every environment you're in, not just by time and location.
The essence of Apple's innovative design can be seen on the new iPad, and it will be interesting to see how the market responds to that.
