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.
