9.7-inch iPad Pro Specs, Price, and Release Date

During its ‘Let us loop you in’ media event, Apple not only unveiled iPhone SE, a 9.7-inch iPad Pro variant was also the star of the show. As the name suggests, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is a smaller sibling of the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which was launched in the month of September last year.

Initially, it was thought that Apple would be launching iPad Air 3 as the successor of the iPad Air 2, but it looks like Apple is preferring the ‘Pro’ branding for the larger iPad devices. Living up to its ‘Pro’ name tag, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro comes loaded with some impressive hardware specs packed inside an aluminum shell. Hit the jump for a detailed run down of 9.7-inch iPad Pro specs, price, and the release date.
