A new iPad Pro has just been announced. Apple’s new iPad Pro is one of the biggest upgrades to the iPad. The new iPad now supports 5G connectivity and is powered by the M1 chip, according to Apple. The new iPad Pro features a significantly improved CPU and GPU, a huge upgrade from the A12Z chip. The company has even announced a 2 terabyte option for the first time, an upgrade from the 1 terabyte option from last year’s iPad Pro.
Cellular models with 5G deliver even faster wireless connectivity when on the go, and to provide users with pro-level throughput for high-speed accessories, iPad Pro now includes support for Thunderbolt. Additionally, an all-new Ultra Wide front camera enables Center Stage, a new feature that automatically keeps users perfectly framed for even more engaging video calls.
The new iPad Pro has 40% faster graphics performance than last year‘s pro model, according to Apple. Alongside the 40% faster graphics, it also features low power video playback support, as well as a new Ultrawide camera and a TrueDepth Camera with improved ISP. The new 12.9” features a mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR Display, with a 1000 nit peak brightness. The iPad Pro will now also support thunderbolt connection and USB 4, something users have been wanting for a while. With the new Thunderbolt connection, you can do things pretty much instantaneously, Apple said. The iPad Pro now supports 5G connectivity on the cellular models, a first in the iPad range. Alongside the new iPad Pro, Apple announced an update to Apple Scribble and a new iPad Magic Keyboard color. The 11” iPad Pro starts at $799, while the 12.9” iPad Pro starts at $1099. They will be available on April 30th.
