Mac’s M1 processor comes to iPad Pro

Apple Ipad

The new iPad Pro is their most powerful tablet to date. Rather than continue betting on the iPhone chipsets or its Apple A14 processors, the company has decided to move its new ARM-based processor to the iPad Pro, bringing its range of tablets even closer to what its laptops offer.

With the M1 processor, Apple promises that “the iPad Pro will be able to do tasks from a Mac.” We have an eight-core CPU where they warn that there is a 50% jump in performance compared to the previous generation and an improvement of up to 1,500 times in graphics.

The new iPad Pro will be compatible with the haptic controls of the PS5 and Xbox One X and will include a new configuration with up to 2 TB of storage and 16 GB of RAM. Some figures typical of laptops and quite far from what most tablets usually offer, from which the iPad Pro is increasingly moving away.

At the connectivity level, the new iPad Pro (2021) offers support for Thunderbolt up to 40 Gbps and USB4 through the USB C port. It is also the first iPad with 5G connectivity and includes support for external displays with higher resolution, specifically up to 6K.

Another of the great additions of this new generation is the new Liquid Retina XDR screen in its 12.9-inch model. It is a new panel that offers up to 1,600 nights peak maximum brightness, an average brightness of 1,000 nits and a contrast 1,000,000: 1, thanks to the use of MiniLED technology. In total, Apple explains that they have incorporated up to 10,000 of these miniLEDs in their 12.9-inch panel.

The iPad Pro (2021) has a system of four speakers, LiDAR and the functions of the iPadOS system that we had seen in previous models and this year comes in its iPadOS 14.5 version. There are no changes to Pencil, but now Scribble supports more languages, including Spanish.

The photographic section has also been updated, with a new 12 megapixel front camera with wide angle designed for iPad and focused to be used with ‘Center Stage’, your video calling application.
