iPad Pro 9.7-Inch Vs Surface Pro 4: Will Apple Beat Microsoft?
So it’s Samsung vs Apple vs Microsoft now. Two brands are, at least, in direct competition with Apple. Whereas Microsoft’s Lumia phones are still far away from iPhones, the former have full potential of beating the company when it comes to tablets. We cannot underestimate the power and popularity of the Surface Pro 4. If it’s Surface Pro 4 vs iPad Pro (9.7-inch), which tablet would win?Advertisement
The iPad Pro 9.7-inch is a smaller version of its 12.9-inch older brother with improvements here and there. Let us first have a look at what Apple in its press release say about the new iPad Pro on the block:
“It features a new pro Retina display with greater brightness, wider color gamut, lower reflectivity, Night Shift mode and introduces new True Tone display technology to dynamically adjust white balance. The new iPad Pro delivers incredible performance with the 64-bit A9X chip that rivals most portable PCs, along with a four-speaker audio system that is twice as powerful, new 12-megapixel iSight camera for shooting Live Photos and 4K video, 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera, and faster wireless technologies. And iPad Pro includes support for the breakthrough Apple Pencil and a new Smart Keyboard cover designed to fit the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro.”
So we have changes made in the latest iPad Pro in front of us. Now let us move towards comparing both the devices. When we speak of design, the iPad Pro 9.7-inch and Surface Pro 4 look almost the same. Both brands, Microsoft as well as Apple, are targeting 2-in-1 devices’ market. So most of the specs they pack in the devices are also same, but yet the quality and features differ.
The brightness, display, and feel will differ. As mentioned above, the iPad Pro with Retina Display and True Tone, a technology that creates a natural viewing experience. This is where the Surface Pro 4 lacks. Maybe Surface Pro 5 will bring True Tone with a different name.
Currently, both companies and their tablet-cum-computer devices are at an equal level. Maybe in the coming days, one will beat the other.
