As has been rumoured for some time now, Apple just officially announced the launch of a new size for the iPad Pro.

Featuring a 9.7-inch display, Apple says it is the “ultimate upgrade”, providing original iPad users with a similar shape and size to what they are used to, but also designed to reach the Windows market.

This new iPad Pro has a 40 percent less reflective screen and 25% brighter display than the iPad Air 2, with more colours and better colour saturation, and it’s a True Tone display that allows it to measure the colour temperature to the ambient light and adjusts the screen to match.

It will also feature a total of four speakers around the tablet, with an Apple A9X processor inside.

There’s also new SD card reader and a powered USB card reader Lighting adapters that will work with the new iPad, with a 12-megapixel iSight camera that can record in 4K.

It will be available with four different colour options, including rose gold from $599 for 32GB, $749 for 128GB and $899 for the 256GB model.

The old 12.9-inch model will also be available with that new 256GB option for $1099.

It will be available to pre-order from March 24th, and will launch on March 31st.
