Apple’s humongous iPad Pro is getting a smaller brother bringing the same type of performance we’ve seen from the 12.9-inch version to people with smaller hands.

The new iPad Pro is 9.7-inches in size (same as the iPad Air 2) and packs the same A9X chip with a dual-core processor as its bigger brother plus 2GB of RAM.

There are also new cameras on this iPad which is a 12MP sensor with True Tone Flash and a 5MP selfie snapper with an option for Retina flash just like in the new iPhones. On top of that, the rear camera is also cable of recording 4K and slow motion videos.
