Apple has recently expanded their iPad Pro series with the 10.5-inches tablet, placing it next to the 12.9-inches one. This has placed customers in some kind of difficulty, since now it’s hard for them to choose one to buy. You have to know that the tablet with the larger screen costs $150 more. Even the cheaper version makes you pay $649, so you have to make a good decision right from the start. Let’s see how they stack up against each other!
The 12.9-inches version measures 12×8.7×0.27 inches, while the smaller version of the iPad is 9.8×6.8×0.24 inches large. This totals to a 76% increase in the size of the tablet. It means that the smaller version is, naturally, more portable. Both of them weigh 1 pound.
The difference in displays between the two is huge. The 10.5-inches version offers a surface of the screen of 53.2 square inches, while the other one comes up with 80.3 sq. in. This means that with the bigger model, you get more than 50% screen surface compared to the smaller one. The 10.5-inches version offers a 2224×1668 pixels resolution. Meanwhile, the 12.9 inches tablet measures 2732×2048 pixels. However, the pixel density is the same on both: 264 ppi.
Perhaps the most important factor in a comparison is the performance. Even though their sizes differ, the inside is pretty much the same. They both run on an Apple A10X Fusion CPU that has six cores. Even if the benchmark tests show slightly different results, both tablets are quite fast, so you won’t notice any difference when using them. Both come together with 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. You can choose between versions with 64, 256 or 512 GB internal storage, but of course, you have to pay more according to the features.
