The iPad Pro 9.7-inch is an upgrade to the iPad Air 2 – in reality, and for the sake of continuity, it should have been dubbed the iPad Air 3. However, what distinguishes it as an iPad Pro is the support for the fantastic Apple Pencil stylus. Also, the iPad Pro 9.7 is more versatile and has a better sound system, featuring four speakers for clearer sound on the few occasions that you won't be using headphones.
That said, it is up to you to decide if the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is right for you. The price and scale of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro will give you the impression that it can be used to deliver complete work, just like a computer. And for graphic designers who use software like Procreate, this is entirely feasible.
It's been 5 years since the release of the iPad Pro 9.7. In this new decade, the iPad Pro 9.7 is fast becoming a relic, not because it is not functional, but because next-gen iPads have replaced it. For example, the iPad Pro 12.9.

Design: As stated earlier, the iPad Pro 9.7 is an upgrade to the iPad Air 2, and it takes after its predecessor's design. The same polished aluminium shell, quick Touch ID fingerprint scanning home button, and 9.7-inch Retina monitor are included.
The lightning port is still at the bottom. You'll find the headphone jack and sleep/wake button on the left, and the volume rocker is on the right side.
Capacity information: The iPad Pro 9.7 sports a better processor than the one used in the iPad Air 2, but half the RAM (2GB rather than 4GB). Independent tests show that the smaller RAM size does not impact the tablet's speed when performing routine tasks. However, the iPad Pro 9.7 may show lag when used to play heavy games or run graphic-intensive applications like Procreate.
The iPad Pro 9.7, like its larger 2015 equivalent, is available in 32GB, 128GB, and now 256GB capacities. There is no 16GB storage variant like we saw in the iPad Air 2. Well, that's for a good reason, considering how fast the iPad Pro 9.7 fills up.
Size and weight info: The iPad Pro 9.7 has the exact pencil-thin dimensions as the iPad Pro 9.6, measuring 240 x 168 x 6.1mm. Based on its size, the iPad Pro 9.7 is a perfect match for two hands and convenient to carry in a backpack.
Interestingly, considering the change in specs, the weight of the iPad Pro tablet remains the same: 437g for Wi-Fi and 444g for Wi-Fi + Cellular. So the updated "Pro" mark does not mean "bigger," but rather "bolder."
Display info: The iPad Pro's display is also excellent. True, the resolution is the same as the older iPad Air 2, but it has significantly improved glare reduction, brightness increase, and Apple's strange-but-oddly-good-for-reading TrueTone automatic color adjustment. The TrueTone feature constantly changes the iPad's color temperature to accommodate your setting, much like an automated and more discreet version of iOS 9.3's Night light.
Apple is big on user experience. So the product designers ensured that the TrueTone feature is not intrusive, and it's so quiet that you might forget it's on before you turn it off in settings. In our opinion, the antiglare, brightness, and color-temperature adjustments make this iPad an excellent unit for outdoor and even indoor use.
Water-resistance info: Like every other iPad in the Apple line up, the iPad Pro 9.7 is not water-resistant. That means the components of the iPad were not designed for underwater use.
Chip info: Apple's A9X System, which includes the integrated M9 motion co-processor and a 12-core PowerVR Series 7 graphics chip, is at the heart of the iPad Pro 9.7. This setup proves capable of handling regular and intensive tasks.
Camera info – The iPad Pro is fitted with a superior: a 12-megapixel rear camera capable of recording 4K video (with actual flash, no less) and a 5-megapixel front camera with Retina Flash. You might laugh at the thought of taking photos with an iPad, but using high-quality cameras on a tablet has no drawbacks. Come to think of it, your iPads camera can be used as a makeshift scanner when you need to capture documents.
Videography: As stated above, the rear camera can capture 4K video at 30 frames per second, and the Slo-mo video mode has been upgraded to 1080p at 120 frames per second and 720p at 240 frames per second.
Battery info: Apple boasts that the iPad Pro's battery can last for up to 10 hours. In fact, the Silicon Valley company compares the battery life of this tablet to that of the iPad Air 2 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Well, that remains to be seen. Several sources state that the iPad Pros battery does last around 10 – 11 hours, depending on the activity it performs.
When it comes to charging the batteries, the iPad Pro 9.7 takes about 3 hours and 50 minutes. You can expect a 17% battery level after a 30 minutes charge.
