The models of iPad Pro 9.7 can be gold, rose gold, space gray and silver. The new tablet is the first Apple device with integrated flash. This iPad has excellent cameras with those sensors like the iPhones 6s has. Every choice for the LTE series will also have the Apple SIM, which can be applied besides traditional Nano SIM card. The device can be with a fast modem because of LTE Cat. 6.

Apple has not been able to supply a QWERTZ model of the Smart Keyboard in the device.

There is no SD-card reader to increase the internal storage. You need an appropriate adapter for files import from a memory card, it costs 35 Euros. There are also some adapters for the Lightning port, like a USB Type-C or the general Type-A and USB- port 3.0. The area of delivery includes the tablet, the power adapter and the lightning to USB-cable. Apple often offers the Pencil in conjunction with apps, but its price is 109 Euros. User also get a three-pin Smart Connector at the left side, which is applied for the connection and power supply of periphery device like the additional Smart Keyboard (170 Euros).


Among the new characteristics is a special Night-Mode with a warmer picture as well as quick protection of notes via fingerprint. The system is responsive and whole inputs are smooth.



This is the first such device with similar camera hardware equated to a high-end Smartphone.

There is a modern 5 MP (2576×1932 pixels) camera at the front. Videos are recorded in 720p, but device has an automatic HDR function in return. The sensor is not only suitable for Face Time, but also occasional selfies if the iPad is not too large for user.

The tablet is equipped with a 12 MP sensor at the rear, it supports all familiar characteristics from the iPhone 6s excepting the optical image stabilizer. The quality of videos is on the high level. Video has been recorded in UHD.

GPS and Connection

The device also supports Bluetooth 4,2 and NFC, but it can only be used in combination with Apple Pay.

The signal quality is very good in metropolitan and in rural areas. The mobile internet connection could only be used for data communications. You have to use Apple’s Face Time or other apps like Skype if you want to call via the device.

The tablet is a dual-SIM tablet. There are the Apple-SIM and the usual Nano-SIM slot.

The embedded Wi-Fi module supports the IEEE 802.11 standards a/b/g/n/ac as well as MIMO-antenna technology in 2,4 and 5 GHz networks.

The tablet  is therefore well-suited for navigation goals.

Input units and Processing

The Apple tablet has a capacitance touchscreen, which can recognize up to ten inputs at once. The screen  clarity and sensitivity do not cause any criticism.

The gliding potential of the glass surface are very nice, there is quickly fingerprints function, despite a special coating. The handling is identical  and the Apple Pencil also works with the device. The panel could be too small if you like to draw on the tablet or modify media files.

There is a Smart Keyboard that still a QWERTY version, but an Apple employee assured us that a QWERTZ model is in the works.


A look inside the tablet or at the specifications, respectively, suggests identical components for the iPad Pro 9.7 and the bigger iPad Pro 12.9. Apple once again uses the familiar vA9X So CV (two native cores, Power VX 7XT GPU), but the chip reaches a maximum clock of up to 2260 MHz in the iPad Pro 12.9 and only 2160 MHz in the more compact 9.7-inch model. There are also differences in terms of RAM: 2 GB inside the iPad Pro 9.7, twice of that (4 GB) inside the iPad Pro 12.9.

Battery time

The Apple iPad Pro 9.7 performs surprisingly well in tests with an adjusted display brightness (150 cd/m²) and can beat all the rivals. The efficiency of the tablet is really good and can even clearly surpass the advertised 10 hours in Wi-Fi test.

Apple once again offers an excellent product with the iPad Pro 9.7, which convinces with familiar virtues and suffers from old quirks.

The iPad Pro 9.7 is a tablet for users that do not want to make any compromises.
