No new iPad mini yet, but there’s a new iPad Pro in town. Speaking of the new Apple iPad Pro, it has moved away from the A series chip; it is now powered by Apple M1 chip and it has 5G too. A sign that iPad Pro is more a computer than a tablet.
The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro boasts a new Liquid Retina XDR display, a mini-LED backlit multi-touch display with IPS technology – that promised extreme dynamic range and “stunning visual experience with more true-to-life details.”
The screen has a 2D backlighting system with 2596 full-array local dimming zones, as well as ProMotion technology.
And there is support for Thunderbolt and USB 4 too – in addition to 5G connectivity.
Also new is a 12 MP Ultra Wide front camera that enables a new feature called Center Stage that automatically keep users perfectly framed for even more engaging video calls.
Other details include 16core Apple Neural Engine, advanced image signal processor, up to 16 GB unfitted memory, 2x fast storage with up to 2 TB capacity, four-speaker audio speaker, five studio-quality microphones, and pro cameras (12 MP wide + 10 MP ultra wide) with LiDAR Scanner.
The new 2021 Apple iPad Pro tablet will be available to order from Friday (April 30) in a choice of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB capacities.
