Apple's March event is over, and the rumors held up. Apple announced a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro — the same size as the current iPad Air model.
"An entirely new iPad Pro, based around a 9.7-inch Retina Display ... it is an iPad Pro through and through," said Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller.
The new, smaller iPad Pro and the current, larger iPad Pro are much the same in terms of performance, but they do differ slightly. The small Pro's display is more advanced — it can produce better, more accurate colors and can adjust its color based on lighting conditions.
