Apple is rumored to unveil a new 9.7-inch iPad on March 21st, and while it may not pack as big a screen as the iPad Pro, it will be way better at taking photos and videos.
Rather than matching the iPad Pro camera, a new rumor claims Apple may give the new iPad the same sensors found in the iPhone 6s.
“Internal prototypes of the smaller model include a 12 megapixel rear camera comparable to the sensor in the iPhone 6s,” 9to5Mac reports.
Both the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Pro have 8MP rear camera sensors. The new 9.7-inch iPad, which may also be called an iPad Pro, will pack nearly the exact same internal components as the 11-inch iPad Pro, but its portability factor combined with the better camera will make it a big draw for anyone that loves pulling a Spike Lee.
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro will also allegedly come with 4K video recording capabilities. Other rumored features include 4 speaker audio, A9X processor, Smart Connector with a Smart Keyboard, and the ability to doodle with Apple Pencil.
Full details on the next iPad is scheduled to go down on March 21st when the company will also unveil a new 4-inch iPhone and some new Apple Watch bands.
