Apple today took the wraps off its 9.7-inch iPad Pro, beefing up the mid-sized version of its tablet. As expected, it's got more power under the hood than the previous iPad Air 2, along with support for the Apple Pencil stylus — in essence, shrinking the features of the old iPad Pro down to a more manageable form factor.
The Android tablet space is in a bit of a weird place right now, as we wait for the arrival of Android N and the new multitasking features that'll bring slates like the Pixel C into their own. Nevertheless, it's worth seeing just how Apple's latest iPad compares to Android's best, so that's exactly what we've prepared for you down below.
