iPad Pro 2021 Launches with M1 Chip and 5G Connection

Apple has launched a new version of the iPad Pro at an event titled "Spring Loaded". iPad Pro 2021 comes in two screen size options, namely 11 inches and 12.9 inches. Different from the previous version, the iPad Pro 2021 now supports 5G connectivity and is equipped. Both also carry the latest chips from Apple, namely the ARM-based M1 with an eight-core GPU and an 8-core CPU. Regarding performance, Apple claims that the iPad Pro 2021 is 1,500 times faster than the 2010 iPad, and 50 percent faster than the 2020 iPad Pro. Not only that, the iPad Pro 2021 is also the first to offer storage options up to 2 TB and 16 GB RAM.

One of the updates brought to the iPad Pro 2021 is a mini LED screen called Liquid Retina XDR which is present on the 12.9-inch model. This screen is claimed by Apple to offer similar performance to Pro Display XDR with 6K resolution.

The iPad Pro 2021 screen has a brightness level of 1,600 nits. Physically, no change is most noticeable. The rear camera module is the same as its predecessor, which is packaged in a box case, similar to the iPhone 12 lineup. Other specifications include WiFi 6, a thunderbolt port with USB 4, a USB-Type C port, and Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard support.

The object scanning technology called "LiDAR Scanner" is also again being presented by Apple in this latest iPad model. The LiDAR scanner is used to scan 3D objects that are targeted by the camera. LiDAR can scan the size and distance between objects and devices. The LiDAR scanner is juxtaposed with two cameras. The two cameras are a 12 MP main camera (f / 1.8) and a 10 MP ultrawide camera (f / 2.4). While on the front, there is a selfie camera with a resolution of 12 MP (f / 2.4). The iPad Pro 2021 starts at $ 799 for the 11-inch model and $ 1,099 for the 12.9-inch variant. The latest devices from Apple can be ordered on the Apple.com site on April 30th and will ship around mid-May.
