March 1: As rumoured previously, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro tablet will be arriving alongside the 4-inch iPhone aka the iPhone SE on March 21. Now, a new rumour indicates the tablet might surpass its 12.9-inch sibling in terms of specifications, at least when it comes to camera and display.
People familiar with the matter tell 9to5Mac that the internal prototype model of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro includes a 12-megapixel rear camera with the same sensor found in the iPhone 6s. This definitely is a bump-up over the 12.9-inch iPad Pro model’s 8-megapixel rear camera. It is worth mentioning that the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is said to be the successor of the iPad Air 2, which too features an 8-megapixel rear camera sensor.
In addition, the tablet in question like previous iPad models will be sporting FaceTime HD camera at the front above the display. It will also be able to record videos in 4K resolution, just like the iPhone 6s.
Besides a better camera, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is also supposed to include an A9X processor, a display technology supporting Apple Pencil, four speakers, and a Smart Connector, of which some havealready been rumoured before. Apple is said to be working on the tablet’s Smart Keyboard cover as well. The display of the tablet might feature improved anti-glare screen with better brightness over the iPad Air 2, which launched in October 2014.
Some of the previously rumoured specifications of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro are 2732×2048 pixels screen resolution sans 3D Touch functionality and 4GB of RAM.
Although the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the 4-inch iPhone SE and some Apple Watch models are expected to launch on March 21, Apple has not yet confirmed the date or any other details about the event.
