If you’re in the market for a new tablet, it won’t have escaped your notice that Apple’s long-established iPad is widely regarded as one of the best. We’d certainly agree that there’s nothing to debate there.
However, a slightly trickier question concerns which model should you buy – the 9.7-inch iPad, or the iPad Pro? While the former offers great value and a compact but capable tablet, the Pro gives you a powerful processor, a drastic redesign, and compatibility with Apple’s latest stylus.
We take a look at the models side-by-side, so you can see which one works for you.
