Apple returns to the classic iPad form factor with the gold 9.7" iPad Pro. The display features a 2048 x 1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi). Using a DCI-P3 color space, the iPad Pro display provides a wider color gamut than standard sRGB displays. And with more available colors, the images will appear more vivid and reveal greater detail. The Retina Display delivers greater contrast, more uniform brightness, and improved energy efficiency through photo alignment technology, an oxide TFT panel, display lamination, an anti-reflective coating, and a variable refresh rate. The iPad Pro also features True Tone display, which uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to dynamically adjust white balance and brightness.
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 iPad Pro 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.
Variable Refresh Rate
The iPad Pro knows when the content on your screen is static and cuts the refresh rate in half, to 30 times per second instead of 60. This means that the screen isn't just big and bright; it's energy efficient too.
12MP iSight Camera
The 12MP iSight camera can shoot Live Photos and even record in 4K video. It also has 1080p slow-motion video support.
5MP FaceTime HD Camera
The front-facing camera features 5 megapixels and allows you to FaceTime in HD. It also has a True Tone software flash for a more natural-looking selfie.
You might expect that such high performance would compromise battery life. But even with its high-resolution Retina display and robust A9X chip, the iPad Pro maintains energy efficiency, providing up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge while on Wi-Fi and up to 9 hours on a cellular signal (battery life may vary depending on usage).
Night Shift uses iPad Pro's clock and geolocation to automatically adjust the colors in the display to the warmer end of the spectrum after dark, possibly helping you get a better night's sleep.
Now you can open a second app without leaving the one you're in. You can quickly browse the web, respond to a text message, or jot something down in a note, then slide that app away and get back to the one you were using before.
With Split View on the iPad Pro, you can go a step further and have two apps open and active at the same time. Work on a sketch with the reference photo beside it or write a paper while copying citations from a book in iBooks.
