By calling the new iPad Pro a supercomputer, Apple makes a bold claim. While it's true that the iPad Pro is nowhere near IBM's Watson supercomputer, the new tablet provides indeed great computing performance.

The original 12.9-inch iPad Pro was full of high specs and came with all thte power needed to run creativity and productivity apps. The Apple Pencil was a great addition that allows easy sketching and video editing.

The smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro also packs a list of high specs with the additional benefit of providing more mobility and being lighter. It can record 1080p at 60 frames per second or 4K at 30 frames per second and it has more megapixels.

According to the website Phys.org, Apple also used in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro nearly all tech advancements included in the first iPad Pro model. Even better, the new iPad Pro represents a significant upgrade and comes with features that outclass its predecessor in significant ways.

Like the bigger version of the iPad Pro, the new one includes Apple's new "Smart Connector" technology, offers a four-speaker stereo sound system and it is powered by Apple's superfast A9X chip. The new mid-sized tablet model also supports Apple Pencil.

The 9.7-inch iPad Pro benefits of improved screen technology. The screen is brighter and less reflective. It can also display a wider range of colors and the "True Tone" feature automatically adjusts the display to the ambient light, ensuring that the colors and images on screen remain vivid and bright.

According to ComputerWorld, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is 6.1 mm thick and weights just 0.96 lbs. The tablet is built around a 2048 x 1536-pixel Retina display and borrows some features from the iPhone 6S.

In processing speed, the new iPad Pro is almost twice as fast as the iPad Air 2 and s graphics performance is fully double that of the Air 2, according to Apple. With this latest update, the high-tech giant shows again that each generation of iPad is getting closer to the capabilities traditionally limited to laptops and desktops.
