Apple is launching a smaller version of the iPad Pro.
The company announced the new, 9.7-inch tablet—the same size as the flagship iPad Air line—at an event at its Cupertino, Calif. headquarters on March 21.
The new iPad, which weighs less than a pound, will have many of the features of the original, 12.9-inch iPad Pro, including support for the Apple Pencil and a new version of the company’s Smart Keyboard to fit the device’s form factor.
The iPad is also considerably brighter and less reflective than the iPad Air 2. It features a new screen technology called True Tone Display that will change the coloring of the screen to better match the ambient light of the room.
The new iPad Pro will cost $599 for the 32GB version, $749 for the 128GB and $899 for the $256GB version. Pre-orders begin March 24 and the device goes on sale March 31.
