Apple has an entire line up of iPads for customers to choose from including two iPad Pros, the iPad and the iPad mini. In this article, we will discuss the differences between the iPad and the iPads Pros and we’ll let you decide which one is the better value.
Some Things Remain the Same
While we are going to talk about the differences between the iPad and the iPad Pros we thought it was important to first tell you what the iPad and iPad Pros still have in common. For starters, both versions of the iPad run the Apple Ios system, which should really not come as surprise. In addition, both models are available with just Wi-Fi or with Wi-Fi and cellular (although you will need a data plan to be able to use the cellular feature. Both models also use the Touch ID fingerprint security screen.
Where the Two Models Diverge
Now we get to the difference in between the iPad and the iPad Pro Starting with the screen size. While the iPad Pros (there are two versions) comes with a 12.9 inch and 10.5-inch screen the iPad still uses a 9.7-inch screen.
The iPad pros also have noticeably better and smoother displays than that of the iPad.
When it comes chips the iPad Pros use the A10X which allows these iPads to run much faster than the regular iPad with its A9 chip.
When it comes to memory the iPad Pros have the iPad beat offering double the memory at 64GB as compared to 32GB of memory. However, this difference may not be as large as it seems since for a hundred dollars more you can boost the memory in the iPad Pros and the iPad to 128 GB evening the playing field when it comes to memory.
The Big Difference Is Between the Cameras and the Audio Playback
The big difference between the iPad and the iPad Pros is in the differences in the camera and the audio playback. The iPad Pros have a 12megapixel rear camera while the iPad only has an 8-megapixel camera. When it comes to the Facetime cameras the iPad Pros are far superior with their facetime cameras being 7megapixels when compared to the iPad’s face time camera that is only 1.2 megapixels.
When it comes to audio playback the iPad Pros have double the speakers sporting 4 of them while the iPad has only 2 speakers. However, the iPad’s speakers are sound.
While the differences between the iPad and the iPad Pros may well put the iPad Pros in a class all of its own. However, you can expect to pay for that class since the iPad Pros (although the two versions are about $150.00 apart) are twice as much as the iPad.
Whether you choose the regular iPad or the iPad Pro is going to come down to your needs, your desire to have the best of best and your budget.
