Apple Unveils A 5G-Compatible iPad Pro With An M1 Chip & A Liquid Retina Display

Apr 20, 2021

Category: Tech

Apple debuted its first-generation iPad in April of 2010, introducing the world to the mobile tablet sector. And after previously unveiling the eighth-gen model towards the tail-end of 2020, the Silicone Valley powerhouse has now revealed its latest and most advanced tablet to date with a 2021 iPad Pro packing Apple’s mighty M1 chip.

Built around a housing crafted entirely from recycled aluminum, the 2021 iPad Pro boasts a Liquid Retina XDR display — backed by 10,000 LEDs — with up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness, and an astounding 1 million-to-1 contrast ratio. The use of the game-changing M1 chip coupled with an 8-core CPU affords the latest iPad Pro up to 40% faster performance over its A12Z Bionic chip-equipped predecessor. Running the latest iPadOS 14.5 and now compatible with Thunderbolt and USB 4 accessories, this 5G-connected tablet also gets the new Magic Keyboard with backlit keys and an integrated trackpad, up to 2TB of high-speed storage, a four-speaker audio system, Center Stage video calling, and a photo hardware setup with the TrueDepth camera system, a LiDAR Scanner, and an all-new 12MP Ultra Wide front camera. Produced in silver or space gray finishes, the 2021 Apple iPad Pro will be available for preorder starting April 30, with pricing starting from $799 for the 11” model and $1,099 for the 12.9” version (with the W-Fi + Cellular-specs both costing an additional $200).

Purchase: $799+
