New iPad Pro 9.7-inch Display is 'Truly Impressive' and a 'Major Upgrade'

Posted by · 17700 views
The display on the iPad Pro 9.7 is a 'truly impressive top performing display' and a 'major upgrade' to the display on the iPad Air 2, reports DisplayMate. After putting the display through numerous tests, DisplayMate found it to be the best performing mobile LCD display that they've ever tested.

The iPad Pro 9.7 fully and very accurately supports two important standard Color Gamuts, the new DCI-P3 Wide Color Gamut that is used in 4K UHD TVs and Digital Cinema, and also the traditional smaller sRGB / Rec.709 Color Gamut that is used for producing virtually all current consumer content for digital cameras, TVs, the internet, and computers, including photos, videos, and movies. The Absolute Color Accuracy of the iPad Pro 9.7 is Truly Impressive as shown in these Figures. It is the most color accurate display that we have ever measured. It is visually indistinguishable from perfect, and is very likely considerably better than any mobile display, monitor, TV or UHD TV that you have.

The iPad Pro 9.7 reflects just 1.7 percent of the ambient light by using a new Anti-Reflection AR coating. That's the lowest screen reflectance of any mobile display by far. This means compared to most tablets and smartphones light glare is reduced by 3 to 1.

The new iPad display breaks records for Highest Absolute Color Accuracy for any display for Both Color Gamuts (1.35 JNCD), Lowest Screen Reflectance for any mobile display (1.7 percent), Highest Peak Brightness in a full size Tablet for any Picture Level (511 nits), Highest Contrast Rating in High Ambient light (301), and Smallest Color variation with Viewing Angle (all under 2.0 JNCD).

Addressing the new True Tone feature that changes the white point and color balance of the display based on ambient light, DisplayMate feels the feature needs a slider to adjust the magnitude of the effect.

Yes, exactly. Agreeing with Curtis and replying to the previous post. And again, Apple has always been good about user experience - operating systems, user interfaces, and ergonomics. Like making furniture more comfortable and pleasing for you to sit in and thus making it more enjoyable to use/be productive with. Apple has never been about the actual engineering of the individual components though and that is their weakness. Because now the companies that were amazing engineers of the components are now creating the actual products themselves. The Korean and Japanese companies are producing more phones, cameras, projectors, televisions, appliances, etc...

Hey editors, next time do your job and actually do some basic editing. The chart displays the iPad Pro 9.7 and iPad Air 2 comparison, not the iPad Pro 12.9 inch iPad Pro device. Get your shit together if you want to be the best otherwise keep hiring retards to run your columns and a shitty editor to edit them. You are supposed to be better than this, so please do your job otherwise I'll just rely on Engadget or others instead of iCantread charts properly.

That's nice. Apple must pay a hefty price to have that screen produced. Oh you didn't know? Apple doesn't actually create/produce the screen technology in any of it's devices. In fact, the majority of them are produced by Samsung with LG coming in second.

That doesn't mean that they built the display for the iPad overall and integrate it into iOS.

I am a designer and my creations are made by my contractor. Let's say I have designed a furniture and have my contractor/supplier to manufacture it for me and I tell them how it will be done, does that mean my contractor/supplier own my design and the process of how it will be made? I don't agree with you Silver. Samsung and LG are not the designers of the screens, they only manufacture it based on how Apple designed it (or how they will do it). That is why the technology is the same even if it made by Samsung or LG. Apple send the palns and Samsung/LG executes it. They are different companies yet they have the same technology applied, if you look at it they should sue each other for using other's designs. That is why Samsung has their own technology which is the OLED in their devices because they cannot use Apple's IPS screen design. Take a look at the latest iMac. Samsung and LG only has the 4k technology yet and Apple already has the 5k screen technology in their iMacs. Apple is known for designing their devices from hardware to software. Apple is giving business to Samsung and LG to mass produce, that's all. Also take a look at luxury fashion brands like Gucci. The designs are by Gucci and the dresses are made by their suppliers in Italy but it is still made by Gucci.
