Here's Why The 9.7-inch iPad Pro Is Better Than The iPad Air 2 And The New iPad
Apple has just recently announced a new affordable iPad called the "iPad." Though confusing, it is officially known as the 5th-generation iPad which follows in the footsteps of the 4th generation model that was released before the iPad Air.
The company plans to start selling the iPad on Friday, March 24 and the said device is already receiving high praise for its specs and affordable price which is $329 for the 32 GB variant and $429 for the 128 GB variant. There are also Wi-Fi + Cellular models available that costs $459 and $559.
Many reports are now comparing the iPad to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPad Air 2, and some claim that it really is a great buy, considering its retail price and specs. But if one were to focus on specs alone, which iPad offers the best? Significant reasons were identified as to why the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is better.
The first reason is that in terms of display, all three devices feature a 9.7-inch display with a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536, a 264 ppi and fully laminated, while only the iPad Pro and iPad Air 2 features an antireflection display. However, the iPad Pro has more extra features such as wide color gamut and True-tone.
Next is the internal memory storage. The iPad Air 2 features 16/32/64/128 GB with 2 GB of RAM, while the iPad features 32/128 GB with 2 GB of RAM. On the iPad Pro, it features 32/128/256 GB with 2 GB of RAM. Because none of these devices has an expandable memory option, the 256 GB variant under the iPad Pro makes it more powerful.
The third reason is the camera specs. The iPad Air 2 features an 8 MP rear camera (f/2.4) capable of recording 1080p@30fps and 720p@120fps, and a 1.2 MP front camera (f/2.2) that shoots 720p@30fps. Meanwhile, the iPad features a 8 MP rear camera (f/2.4) which records 1080p@30fps and 720p@120fps, and a 1.2 MP front camera (f/2.2) that shoots 720p@30fps.
As for the iPad Pro, it features a 12 MP camera (f/2.2) on its backs which is capable of recording 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30/60fps, 1080p@120fps and 720p@240fps. On the front, it has a 5 MP camera (f/2.2) that shoots 1080p@30fps and 720p@240fps.
