Apple iPad 2017 Vs Apple iPad Pro: Which Model Is Worth Buying? [VIDEO]
The tablet market has been brimming with Apple iPads for about a couple of years, with a bunch of different variants offered by the company. While all of them have been sold out as soon as they hit the shelves, a recent product launch has stirred conversations among tech enthusiasts. Why pay more for the same size iPad with nearly similar specs? Let's delve straight into the details.
The Cupertino tech titan has outed an array of iPad variants until now, with quite a few of them focusing on a particular price segment. It's worth noting that the 2017 iteration of the iPad along with the 9.7-inch and the 12.9-inch variants, the mini 4 as well as the iPad Air 2 sell like hotcakes. Comparing iPad models on the basis of their hardware specifications on Apple's website show the 2017 iPad edition has ousted the aged iPad Air 2.
The core components are the key striking difference between the newfangled iPad 2017 and the iPad Pro 9.7-inch tablet, which explains the economical price tag the former carries. The bigger difference exists in the display section as the 2017 version of the iPad does not feature an anti-reflective coating, true-tone display, and a wide color gamut as well.
Moreover, the tablet packs an older Apple A9 chip and if that weren't enough, it is not even compatible with their Apple pencil or the smart keyboard. Lining with this, a report from Apple Insider states, trading-off features might not necessarily do justice to a considerable price difference of $270 for the iPad 2017.
On the photography front, the 2017 iPad has been adjusted to an extent, with the new tablet sporting an 8MP camera as opposed to the iPad Pro's 12MP sensor. With the elimination of the Retina flash, live photos are not present on the new iPad too. Moreover, by getting rid of the smart connector, the popular tech firm has without an iota of doubt dropped out some significant features to bring about the pricing.
