The new iPad Pro has a new system-on-a-chip. And you are familiar with it: this is the M1. It’s found in the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13, Mac mini, and the new 24-inch iMac. This allowed us to increase the amount of RAM up to 16 GB at once.
The new iPad Pro has received support for DualSence and the new Xbox controller.
A 2 TB version has appeared, a USB Type-C port with support for Thunderbolt and USB Type-C 4. Also, the iPad can work in fifth generation networks.
It’s not very clear why, but cameras have gotten better. The front camera was also well pumped. It is now a 122 ° ultra wide-angle camera. Thanks to neural networks, the camera can read you and place the frame in the center, as well as follow you as if an operator was sitting behind an iPad and pointing the tablet at you. Apple calls the technology Spotlight.
Apparently, LiDAR has been significantly redesigned – now it works at a greater distance.
The new display of the 12.9-inch model received a picture similar to the Pro Display XDR. This is Liquid Retina XDR with 1600 nits peak brightness. As expected, the display is indeed made using miniLED technology. There are over 10,000 LEDs on a single 12.9-inch display panel. There were only 72 in the last generation.
