iPad Pro is more than the next generation of iPad—it’s an uncompromising vision of personal computing for the modern world. It puts incredible power that leaps past most portable PCs at your fingertips. It makes even complex work as natural as touching, swiping, or writing with a pencil. And whether you choose the 12.9-inch model or the new 9.7-inch model, iPad Pro is more capable, versatile, and portable than anything that’s come before. In a word, super.
The key to the iPad experience is the display. It’s how you interact using Multi-Touch, and how you view content in spectacular detail. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro has the highest resolution of any iOS device. And the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro screen is the brightest and least reflective in the world.
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro display uses the same color space as the digital cinema industry. This wider color gamut gives iPad Pro up to 25 percent greater color saturation than previous iPad models. So colors are more vivid, true to life, and engaging.
People love using iPad everywhere. That’s why the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro has a True Tone display. It uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to automatically adapt the color and intensity of the display to match the light in your environment. Which means reading is more natural and comfortable—almost like looking at a sheet of paper.
With a high-fidelity speaker in each corner, iPad Pro creates a rich, wide, and detailed soundstage. It automatically adjusts the orientation of the high frequencies to the topmost speakers, no matter how you’re holding it. So whether you’re playing a game or listening to music, you—and your ears—will be completely immersed.
The 64-bit A9X chip gives iPad Pro the power to easily take on tasks once reserved for PCs. Not to mention tasks you’d never consider doing on a PC. Despite this barrier-breaking performance, the A9X chip’s efficient architecture enables up to 10 hours of battery life.
Whichever iPad Pro you choose, there’s a Smart Keyboard that fits.2 By combining new technologies and materials, Apple created a portable keyboard that’s unbelievably thin and even doubles as a lightweight yet durable iPad cover. And thanks to the Smart Connector, there are no cords, pairing, or plugs. Just attach and start typing.
Apple Pencil feels incredibly responsive from the moment you pick it up.2 It’s sensitive to both tilt and pressure, allowing you to create a range of artistic effects. And with its pixel-perfect precision, Apple Pencil opens up new creative possibilities.
iPad Pro has remarkable cameras on both the front and the back. The 12.9-inch model’s 8-megapixel iSight camera lets you shoot beautiful photos and video. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro comes with a 12-megapixel iSight camera, which can capture 4K video, 240-fps slo-mo videos, and Live Photos. It’s also the first iPad with True Tone flash, so skin tones look great regardless of lighting.
Things are sharper on the other side of iPad Pro, too. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera’s latest sensor makes video calls more lifelike.3 And on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the 5-megapixel FaceTime HD camera features Retina Flash with True Tone for gorgeous selfies.
Even though iPad Pro can handle tasks usually reserved for PCs, it’s lighter than any PC could hope to be. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro packs heavyweight performance into 444 grams. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is thinner than iPhone 6s and weighs just 723 grams. And thanks to the aluminum unibody, both sizes feel reassuringly solid in the hand.
iPad Pro connects to fast Wi-Fi and cellular networks, so you can download movies, browse the web, and share documents from virtually anywhere. Whether or not you’re in Wi-Fi range, the superfast Wi-Fi + Cellular model supports a wide range of LTE bands around the world. And Apple SIM helps you stay connected when you’re on the go with short-term cellular data plans available right on iPad Pro.
You can store your photos, videos, and other files right on iPad Pro. Or you can use iCloud to access them securely from anywhere. You can also store and manage them with third-party apps and services like Dropbox and Google Drive. And with just a tap, you can use AirDrop to quickly and easily share your documents and files with people nearby. No setup required.
iPad Pro and iOS 9 are engineered to work seamlessly together, creating a great user experience in an environment that’s designed to be highly secure. Because iOS is engineered with such a focus on security, most of the mobile malware in the world ends up on other platforms. And we’re always working to make it even more secure. We lead the industry in delivering operating system updates as quickly as possible, and we make it easy for you to download and install updates on your iPad to take advantage of our latest protections.
At Apple, we don’t build a profile based on your email content or web browsing habits to sell to advertisers. We don’t “monetize” the information you store on your iPad or in iCloud. And we don’t read your email or your messages to get information to market to you. Our software and services are designed to make our devices better. Plain and simple.
iPad Pro can connect to thousands of wireless accessories—including third-party keyboards. Using AirPrint, you can print to most wireless printers. And with AirPlay and Apple TV, you can stream everything on your iPad Pro wirelessly to your HDTV.
