The Apple special media event, which is slated for Mar 21, is almost here. Many gadget lovers are excited to see what great new devices the tech giant will be unveiling to the world. While the event is intended to loop everyone in, rumors about the Apple products, which will be launched during the event have been making rounds on the internet for several months now. One of the gadgets that is expected to be unveiled is the rumored 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
While it was initially reported that the 9.7-inch iPad that Apple was working on was the next generation of the iPad Air, 9to5Mac has reported that the device is going to be marketed as a new and smaller iPad Pro. So, what exactly makes this iPad Pro Mini better than its larger predecessor? Here are 3 reasons why:
- It?s More Portable ? While the 12.9-inch iPad Pro was probably designed for more professional purposes, its size really makes it a very tough tablet to bring around. It almost defeats the purpose of not bringing a laptop along as the 12.9-inch display really takes up a lot of space. With a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, Apple gives us a smaller high end product, which can still be used for the same purposes as its larger predecessor but is ultra-portable.
- High End Specs in a Smaller Package ? Don?t let the size fool you. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is given the ?Pro? designation for a reason. While it may be smaller, it still packs high end specs, which is very similar to the 12.9-inch model. According to BGR, the upcoming 9.7-inch iPad is going to feature 4K resolution display, improved speakers and a super-fast A9x processor, so it will be a powerful device wrapped in a small package.
- Lower Price Tag ? One major reason why the 9.7-inch version of the iPad Pro could be better than the larger one is that the former costs a lot less than the latter. According to a report from The Verge, the upcoming iPad?s pricing will start at $599. While this is more expensive than other 9.7-inch iPads, it is still cheaper than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which starts at $799.
So, are you going to go and buy the iPad Pro Mini when it becomes available? Be sure to check back here soon to find out more details about this exciting new device from Apple.
