Description

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is a high-end tablet made for both entertainment and serious work. Its extra-large display makes it ideal for gaming and watching movies on the go, as well as for drawing or taking notes using the second-gen Apple Pencil. The A12X system chip gives Apple's tablet enough processing power to easily edit 4K video and run complex apps like Photoshop. You also get 10 hours of battery life, per Apple's estimates, and Face ID authentication instead of a fingerprint scanner.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 12.9 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 2048 x 2732 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 265 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
