Apple launches 9.7 inch iPad Pro: Five reasons why it's worth buying!

Apple's new iPad Pro is surely smaller than its gigantic 12.9-inch namsake, and we're sure it'll make your job easier now that you may not really feel conflicted about owning an iPad or a laptop!

Here are five reasons why the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is probably worth your money and a good deal of your time too:

Display

Even though it retains the characteristics of it's predecessor, the new iPad's display is a lot better than your iPad Air 2. Compared to the latter, it is 25 per cent brighter and 40 per cent less reflective. It also uses four-channel sensors which adjust the white balance of the display.

Dimensions

The new iPad Pro is sleek and easy to hold, given that it weighs shy of a pound and is just 6.1 mm thin which is usually considered an achievement for a premium smartphone. The aluminium unibody also lends enough firmness to the iPad Pro to ensure it wouldn't bend over a period of time.

Processor

iPad Pro fields an A9X processor which is a tablet-version of the A9 that powers iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and the just-launched iPhone SE. It is 1.8 times faster than the A8X chip which powers the iPad Air 2, and is also faster than 80 per cent of PCs shipped all over the world in the last twelve months.

The processor also supports up to ten hours of battery life which is quite a deal for an iPad.

Cameras

iPad Pro features an 8MP iSight camera which is capable of capturing 4k videos, images with a True Tone flash as well as Live Photos. There's also a 5MP FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash, and both of these will ensure that you won't have to give up on an iPad just because the cameras aren't nice.

However, if you need an iPad Pro with cameras like the ones in iPhone 6s, you better go for the 12.9-inch one.

Audio quality

The new iPad Pro isn't just good on performance, but in terms of entertainment too. The four speakers offer twice the audio outpou compared to regular iPads and there are built-in sensors as well which adjust and optimise the audio to your liking. What's more, you'll also be able to play videos encoded with Dolby Digital Plus audio streams!
