Sometimes smaller is better -- especially when it comes to technology; take the latest iPad Pro as the perfect example. Geared towards business needs, the original iPad Pro was announced late last year and measured 12.9 inches. This one, announced just this morning at a press event in Cupertino, California, measures only 9.7 inches.

In addition to its more manageable size, the 9.7 inch iPad Pro comes with an external magnetic interface — the Smart Connector — that a hardware keyboard can be easily attached to. It also boasts the Apple Pencil stylus, to which Apple's Phil Schiller labeled "the greatest accessory Apple has ever made." It makes transporting ideas and plans so much easier.
