Apple Inc. unveiled an updated iPad Pro with a faster processor, 5 G connectivity, upgraded screen and new cameras, offering a more powerful version of its priciest tablet aimed at workers and students returning to offices and schools.
The new models come in the same 13 inch and 12.9 inch screen sizes as the previous version, and they look nearly identical to the iPad Pro design introduced in 2018. The new tablets include Apple's M 1 processor from the Mac, which Apple has said is far faster than the A 12 Z chip that was launched in the last iPad Pro about a year ago.
The iPad has made$ 8.4 billion in revenue during the key holiday quarter of 2020 for Apple- the highest since 2014. The demand from people who worked and studied at home during the pandemic jumped on demand. The Apple- Silicone- Technology is betting on these upgrades to maintain interest in the tablet line, which debuted Tuesday as part of the product event in Cupertino, California.
The new iPad Pro also has a MiniLED screen, dubbed by Apple as the Liquid Retina XDR Display, which allows brighter colors, more detail and improved contrast ratios. The new screen, however, is only available on the larger and pricier 12.9 inch models. Apple will also launch iPads with 5-G wireless connectivity for the first time, expanding its 5 G portfolio from the iPhone 12 line.
Apple has also updated the iPad Pro's camera system with a new 12 megapixel full-frame camera on the front and an improved low-light sensor on the back. The company also announced a new Magic Keyboard that comes in a updated white color.
The new iPad Pros go on sale April 30 and start at$ 799 for the 11 inch model. The miniLED version with the 12.9 inch screen starts at$ 1,099. Models that are 5 G-capable will cost extra and storage levels will range to as much as 2 terabytes for the first time. Last month, Bloomberg News reported on the new iPads; Apple has increasingly used its expertise in custom chip development to give it a leg up on the competition.
The company started last year with its internally designed Mac personal computers to replace the internal components from Intel Corp., adding parts from the company. The M 1 chip in the new iPads is the same chip inside the latest MacBook Air, entry-level MacBook Pro, Mac mini and new iMac. The company said that the processor will improve new professional apps and augmented reality rendering.
It has eight main computing cores and eight graphics cores, the same as in the Mac chips. That's more than the A 14 processor in the iPad Air and cheaper iPhone 12, which have six main computing cores and four graphics cores. Apple said that the new iPad Pros will include a Thunderbolt connector for the first time, allowing compatibility with external accessories such as additional monitors.
This also lets the iPad sync with some external storage drives at faster speeds. While the port is updated, it is the same size as the USB-C connector on the earlier iPad Pro.
