The new 9.7 inch iPad Pro goes on sale, starting at $599 for 32 GB.

The 9.7 inch iPad Pro features a True-Tone display, that adjusts the color temperature of the screen based on the room lighting environment.

Apple says it wants to provide a 9.7 inch iPad for all the customers who already have 9.7 inch tablets. In addition, iPad Pro 9.7inch is targeted at Windows desktop and notebook users.

The display is 40% less reflective than the iPad Air, the lowest reflectivity of any tablet. It is also 25% brighter than an iPad Air 2, ‘the brightest tablet available’. The screen also works with Night Shift, coming in iOS 9.3. Like the 12.9 inch iPad, this iPad has 4 speakers for stereo audio depending on orientation. Like iPhone 6s, the new iPad Pro features always-on Hey Siri. 

The iPad Air 2 is getting a price drop, now starting at $399. The 12 inch iPad Pro has gained a 256 GB option.
