Let me start by saying that I know I will be called a spec nerd, etc. and that's fine. Now onward: instead of just using the same resolution as a 12.9 inch iPad Pro, Apple introduced yet another resolution in order to keep the new 10.5 inch iPad Pro at 264 PPI, instead of 325 PPI. I probably was not getting a new iPad this year anyway, but this etches that in stone. P.S. - no one knows about the RAM yet, either!
