Apple has just launched a new tablet device this Tuesday, which will simply go by the name iPad like many of its predecessors. The device is made to be marketable to the average consumer on a budget, coming in at the low cost of just $329 for the 32GB version. The device will act as a replacement for the previous iPad Air 2, but it will not have many of the high end features that we should expect from a new product like this. This is why Apple will also be releasing another version of the iPad – iPad Pro 2 – which will be a higher quality version with a lot more functionality and a higher price. Let’s take a look at some of the main differences between the devices.
Instead of a 9.7 inch LED display that the iPad will have, the enhanced iPad Pro 2 is going to come with a 10.5 inch True Tone display that will adapt to the brightness of the environment to avoid sharp glares.
The iPad is going to use the Apple A9 processor, but the iPad Pro 2 is going to come with the upgraded Apple A10X processor. According to the Geekbench stats, the A10X managed to score a 4,236 for single core processing and a 6,588 for multi core processing. The A9 scored a slightly lower value of 2,397 for single core and 4,013 for multi core.
Both devices will come with the same operating system, iOS 10.3.
The regular iPad will be released with a 8-megapixel f/2.4 visual camera, while the iPad Pro 2 is going to have the enhanced 12-megapixel f/2.2 camera.
The iPad will come at a cost that is less than half the cost of the iPad Pro 2, which is expected to be released at $799.
