The 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the Missing USB 3 Speed

I write this knowing that it sounds like I have a particularly odd spec fixation, but it’s something my brain keeps coming back to. The newly-announced 9.7-inch iPad Pro (yes, that’s the official name) is in many ways just like the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but with a different-sized screen. They’re both powered by A9X processors ...
