Apple launched its new tablets, ‘iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch’ at its Spring Loaded event. Both models are powered by Apple’s M1 chip which promises a 50 percent leap in CPU performance and 40 percent fast GPU performance if we compare it to the A12X Bionic chip seen on predecessor models.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro model is the first to feature a mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display whereas the 11-inch model features LED-backlit display. Across the entire back of the mini-LED display, the latest cutting-edge mini-LED uses over 10,000 LEDs. It has a full-screen brightness of up to 1000 nits, a peak brightness of 1600 nits, and a contrast ratio of one million to one. Both models support ProMotion, True Tone, and P3 big colour, giving HDR and Dolby Vision content an unrivalled mobile cinematic experience.
Also, both iPad models are first to come with 5G eSIM support, Thunderbolt support and USB 4 via USB-C port.
Apple M1’s ISP and Neural Engine unlock even more capabilities from the pro camera system, including support for Smart HDR 3 on iPad Pro for the first time. In low-light situations, the ISP and LiDAR Scanner focus images and videos rapidly and precisely, capturing amazing imagery with almost no light.
