    Apple claims that the Pro 9.7 has an improved reflective coating.on the glass. So, I decided to check it out.

    I positioned my iPad Air1 on my kitchen counter under a window that was letting in lots of daylight. I took a shot of the screen using my phone. Then right away I removed the Air and put my Pro in the same spot and took another photo from the exact same distance and angle.

    I cut and pasted the shots side by side so the results would be easy to see. Look at the reflections of me taking the photo of the Pro and the Air There's no doubt which one is better.

    Darn.. I meant to put this in the iPad Pro forum, but clicked on mini by mistake. Could a mod move it?

    All done.

    You're right, the iPad Pro has a much better anti-reflection coating.
    If you want to see an even bigger difference, compare the iPad 1 with the iPad Pro.

    What has really impressed my wife and I is how easy it is to read our Kindle books on the iPad Pro outdoors in sunshine. No other tablet I've ever used even comes close.
