Like the iPhone SE, which has the body of an iPhone 5s and the mind of an iPhone 6s (more or less), the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro looks very much like an iPad Air 2. Their dimensions are identical. Their screen sizes are identical. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is very much the follow-up to the iPad Air 2, but with a different name.
But beyond the basic similarities, there are some huge differences between the iPad Air 2 and the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
