[edit] Features

  • Apple's high-quality aluminum unibody build, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the front, and the usual buttons and ports along the sides.
  • Screen differences with iPad Pro: it's not laminated, it doesn't have an anti-reflective coating, and it doesn't support a wide color gamut. There's also no True Tone, meaning the screen won't use the ambient light sensor to dynamically adjust the screen's white color balance to make text more readable.
  • Fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi delivers up to 866-Mbps throughput. The Wi-Fi + Cellular model supports LTE networks worldwide for convenient connectivity.
  • This unit is the same size and weight as an iPad Air thus accessories such as cases for the Air will fit.
