iPad Pro

Apple's most advanced tablet family. Introduced in 2015 with a 12.9" Retina Display screen and up to 128GB of storage. The Pro's four speakers boosted volume significantly over previous iPads.

In 2016, a smaller 9.7" Pro featured a True Tone screen that adjusts automatically to the ambient light. Live Photos was also added, and storage was increased to 256GB for both models. iPad Pros are considerably faster than previous iPads rivaling Apple's MacBook laptops. See Apple Pencil, Live Photos, iPad and iOS versions.
