Apple is allegedly preparing to release a significant processor upgrade for this year’s iPad Pro, according to Mark Gurman (84.38% accurate). Gurman has a strong track record when it comes to Apple leaks, having given us our first glimpse at the original iPad Air, among other things. In a statement, Gurman described this year’s iPad Pro chips as “on par with the M1 chip in the latest Macs.” Back in 2020, the first Apple laptops with custom silicon chips changed the personal computer industry. By switching to ARM chips, Apple was able to improve performance significantly, while also providing further benefits like a fanless design, instant wake, and greatly improved battery life. By design, all of Apple’s iPad Pro devices so far have been introduced with custom Apple-designed silicon. However, these new rumors suggest that Apple’s next iPad Pro will leapfrog its predecessors in terms of speed and performance.

From previous rumors and analyst reports, it could be said that Apple’s next iPad Pro could launch as soon as March — likely via a special Apple Event or press release. Read our full writeup about the 2021 iPad Pro right here.
