In March, Apple released a new version of their iPad Pro tablet series. The first version released in 2015, sold more than 2 million units in its first quarter, beating out the Surface Pro in sales. While the new Pro has many of the same features as the old version, there are upgrades. So what do you need to know before buying the new iPad Pro?
It’s Brighter and Less Reflective
The new iPad Pro is 25 percent brighter than other iPads while being less reflective. It includes a new feature called “NightShift”, which changes the color on the tablet based on the location and time of day. TrueTone allows the iPad to change how the display looks under different light. This means it is easier to read the tablet in direct sunlight and at night.
The last Pro model featured a 12.9” screen that was hard to carry around and bulky. The new Pro is more portable, coming in at 9.7”, more than 3’’ smaller than the previous version. The new size makes it more portable, as it is lighter and fits more easily into purses and other bags.
It has a Better Camera
A 12 megapixel (MP) camera will replace the 8 MP camera of the old iPad Pro, with an added 5MP HD front camera perfect for Facetime. The new camera will also allow for Live Photos and feature True Tone flash. 4K video recording capabilities also exist allowing amateur videographers to record HD video.
