I am reviewing the smaller iPad Pro (9.7 inch). This iPad is a great device. If you are looking for a full featured iPad that is not humongous (the 12.9 inch is huge) and is not a laptop (MacBook, MacBook Pro, Chromebook, etc.), get the iPad Pro 9.7 inch. Perfect size. If you are looking for a iPad that is the same size but a smaller price get the NEW 2017 iPad that replaced the iPad Air 2. The iPad 5th Generation is left off after the iPad 4th Generation but then they started calling it the iPAd Air so this iPad 5th Generation replaces the (aging) iPad Air 2. Well in this article I am reviewing the iPad Pro 9.7 inch not the iPad 5th Generation, iPad Pro 12.9 inch, or the iPad Mini 4. Let’s Review!
Key: iPad Pro = iPad Pro 9.7 inch.
Key: iPad Pro 12.9 inch = iPad Pro 12.9 inch.
Key: iPad = iPad 5th Generation
On the iPad Pro you can buy the compatiable iPad Pencil ($100) which is NOT included in the iPad box. You can also buy the iPad Keyboard ($150) which is also NOT included in the box. You can also get the Apple Pencil and Apple Keyboard for the 12.9 inch iPad Pro.
Note: The iPad Pro Apple Keyboard is also an iPad Pro case!
The iPad Pro runs the speedy A9X chip. It runs really fast. This iPad runs apps and sites like WordPress, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, ABC, Showtime, HBO, Spotify, Pandora, iMovie, GarageBand, Docs, Pages, Word, Keynote, Slides, Numbers, Spreadsheet, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Pinterest, Skype, Hangouts, Trivia Crack, FruitNigia, Stack, Pianio Tiles, and more great apps. Note: Some of the apps are designed for the iPhone (and iPod Touch) but run and work well on the iPad Pro (Instagram etc.). Also on the browser it loads really fast.
The Wifi-only iPad Pro 9.7 inch is from $599.00 and the cellular and Wifi model is from $729 (proably even more when you add a data plan).
