Apple introduced the latest addition to its tablet lineup - all-new 9.7-inch iPad Pro - at an event happened at its headquarters in Cupertino, last month.
The tablet features almost same innards as the iPad Pro that the company had launched last year. Much like the bigger sibling, the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro also supports the Apple Pencil and also comes with Smart Connector for detachable Smart Keyboard.

The Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro is now available in India and the prices start at Rs. 49,900 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only model, and go up to Rs. 85,900 for the 256GB model with cellular data.

The 9.7-inch iPad Pro features advanced display technologies, including a True Tone display, which uses new four-channel sensors to dynamically adjust the white balance of the display to match the light around you for a more natural and accurate, paper-white viewing experience. The advanced Retina display is 25 percent brighter and 40 percent less reflective than iPad Air 2, making content even easier to see indoors and out.
The new iPad Pro is just 6.1mm thin and weighs just under one pound, yet delivers groundbreaking performance, connectivity and versatility so you can tackle the most demanding tasks wherever you go. It is powered by the powerful A9X chip with third-generation 64-bit architecture that provides performance that rivals many laptops and console-class graphics while also delivering all-day battery life.

Built-in sensors automatically adjust and optimize the audio no matter which way you're using it.
