As expected, Apple today unveiled the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and 4-inch iPhone SE. The newly announced 9.7-inch iPad Pro model puts an end to Apple's iPad Air lineup, and it gives Apple fans a smaller, lighter and more powerful iPad option. The 9.7-inch version is similar to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro model released last year, but with a few improvements mostly in the camera department. The smaller model is of course lighter than the larger model weighing in at only 437 grams (0.96 pound).
The new iPad Pro is equipped with a 9.7-inch Retina display with 2048‑by‑1536 resolution (264 ppi). It also powered by the same A9X and M9 chips found in its larger counterpart. Both models also include four speaker audio, Touch ID, Apple Pay, always-on Siri, Apple Pencil support and a Smart Connector for use with Apple's Smart Keyboard, which now comes in 12- and 9-inch versions.
