The prices are different depending on the size of storage. For instance, the 32GB variant will start at $599, the 128GB variant will be priced at $749 and the 256GB variant will cost you $899. This is the right time to buy an iPad Air 2, since the Cupertino giant is offering a price cut on its original $499, which is now sold at $399.
A blog by WSJ claims you have four color options to choose from for the new iPad Pro – silver, rose gold, space gray and gold. While the display measures 9.7 inches, it offers a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels with 264 pixel density. Meanwhile, Apple claims that the screen is 25% brighter, 40% less reflective and 25% crispier with great color saturation.
The new iPad Pro will be powered by the A9X processor as found on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. As for the rear camera, the iPad Pro will sport a 12MP camera sensor, which is capable of shooting Live photos and even short videos. The plus point is the camera can diligently shoot 4K videos at 30 frames per second.
The longevity of battery life plays a significant role. Today, every other iPad model is capable of offering 10 hours battery life at a stretch based on uninterrupted web surfing on Wi-Fi. Since the 9.7-inch iPad Pro released only a couple of days back, it is too early to comment on its battery, but Apple has its own take on that.
According to the tech giant, the A9X chip used in the device is capable of delivering all-day battery life along with ultrafast wireless connectivity that lets you stay connected with MIMO technology on LTE network. While on the move to international countries, you can connect the device with wireless data plans without any hassle.
