  1. The displays have rounded corners. When measured as a rectangle, the iPad Pro 12.9-inch screen is 12.9 inches diagonally and the iPad Pro 11-inch screen is 11 inches diagonally. Actual viewable area is less.
  2. Apple Pencil (1st generation) is compatible with iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad mini (5th generation), 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro (1st and 2nd generation), and iPad (6th generation). Apple Pencil (2nd generation) is compatible with 11-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation).
  3. Available space is less and varies due to many factors. A standard configuration uses approximately 10GB to 12GB of space (including iOS and preinstalled apps) depending on the model and settings. Preinstalled apps use about 4GB, and you can delete these apps and restore them.
  4. Size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process.
  5. FaceTime calling requires a FaceTime-enabled device for the caller and recipient and a Wi‑Fi connection. Availability over a cellular network depends on carrier policies; data charges may apply.
  6. For a list of compatible Apple Pay devices, see https://support.apple.com/en-us/KM207105.
  7. Data plan required. Gigabit-class LTE and 4G LTE are available in select markets and through select carriers. Speeds are based on theoretical throughput and vary based on site conditions and carrier. For details on LTE support, contact your carrier and see www.apple.com/ipad/LTE.
  8. Cellular data plan is sold separately. The model you purchase is configured to work with a particular cellular network technology. Check with your carrier for compatibility and cellular data plan availability.
  9. Not all carriers support Apple SIM and eSIM. See your carrier for more details. Not available in China. The eSIM technology works with the 11‑inch iPad Pro, 12.9‑inch iPad Pro (3rd generation), iPad Air (3rd generation), and iPad mini (5th generation). Apple SIM works with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 10.5‑inch iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation or later), iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, and iPad mini 4.
  10. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information.
