The Apple iPad Pro display features a 2048 x 1536 resolution at 264 ppi. Using a DCI-P3 color space, the iPad Pro display provides a wider color gamut than standard sRGB displays. Its 9.7″ Retina display is powered by Apple A9X chip with a M9 motion coprocessor. The 3rd generation 64-bit chip can pump out desktop-class CPU performance and console-class graphics.
The faster performance allows you to multitask with ease, using iOS 9 features, such as Picture in Picture, Slide Over, and Split View. Also, the iPad Pro is capable of playing three simultaneous 4K video streams in iMovie. The iPad Pro also features 256GB of storage.
The rear 12MP iSight camera has an f/2.2 aperture and a True Tone flash. It can shoot Live Photos and 4K video as well as Full HD 1080p slow-motion video and panoramas up to 63MP in size. The 5MP front-facing camera allows you to FaceTime in HD with friends and family.
The iPad Pro comes with iOS 9 installed, which features proactive assistance as well as powerful search and improved Siri features, all while protecting your privacy. There are the aforementioned multitasking features for iPad, which allow you to use multiple apps simultaneously, as well as improvements to built-in apps. The Notes app has been redesigned, the Maps app gives detailed transit information, and the News app adds another way to keep up with the times. The foundation of iOS is even stronger, with software updates that require less space to install and advanced security features to further protect your device.
A9X Chip with M9 Motion Coprocessor
The A9X, Apple’s 3rd-generation 64-bit chip, gives iPad Pro the power to easily take on tasks that were once reserved for workstations and PCs. Despite the high performance, the A9X chip’s underlying architecture is efficient. With 1.8 times the CPU performance of the iPad Air 2’s A8X, the A9X chip delivers in both speed and responsiveness. Even complex tasks like creating, rendering, and manipulating a 3D design or editing multiple streams of 4K video happen quickly and smoothly. The iPad Pro features a revamped storage controller that has increased read and write speeds, so you can quickly open even the large files, like the big 4K movie you just edited or all the RAW images you imported from your HD camera.
9.7″ Retina Display
Within the 9.7″ LED-backlit touchscreen, the 2048 x 1536 native resolution renders text and images at 264 pixels per inch and a total of over 3.1 million pixels. The display uses a bonded design, which eliminates gaps between layers, along with the internal reflections caused by those gaps. This results in richer colors, greater contrast, and sharper, more vivid images. The display also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating to keep your screen clean. With its DCI-P3 color space, the display provides a wider color gamut than standard sRGB displays.
True Tone Display Technology
The iPad Pro features True Tone technology, which uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to dynamically adjust white balance as well as brightness. This allows the display to match the light around you for a more natural and accurate, paper-white viewing experience.
To improve on-‘axis contrast, Apple used an advanced process called photo alignment. This involves shining UV light to create a uniform terrain across the film coating on the thin film transistor and color filter, so the display’s liquid crystal molecules lie precisely where they should. Better-aligned molecules mean you see better contrast when looking directly at the display.
