Apple recently launched a new iPad and it’s not the Air 3. This new model incorporates a new processor and larger storage capacity while maintaining the look of its predecessors.

The new iPad Pro is a 9.7-inch tablet device that features the speedy A9 processor. It will also be available in 32GB and 128GB storage variants, reports Engadget.


Apart from the faster processor and better storage, it also comes with a brighter display but retains the 2,048 x 1,536 resolution. Unfortunately, the screen is not laminated to the glass nor does it have an anti-reflective treatment that is common on other iPads.

The 9.7-inch iPad Pro will retail at $329 (roughly P16,500) for the 32GB WiFi version while the 128GB model gets a price tag of $429 (roughly P21,500). Shoppers can also get an LTE version of each for an additional $130 (roughly P6,500). Availability will start on March 24.

It appears that Apple is looking at the 9.7-inch as the new mainstream size moving forward. In addition, the starting price for the 32GB version is the lowest for an iPad to date, which should make it easier to convince shoppers to shell out their hard-earned cash. Alfred Bayle/JB
