Supercharged by the Apple M1 chip
The ultimate iPad experience. Now with breakthrough M1 performance, a breathtaking XDR display and blazing‑fast 5G wireless. Buckle up.
iPad Pro and M1. Power couple.
M1 chip. With M1, iPad Pro is the quickest device of its kind. It’s built to take full advantage of next‑level performance and custom-engineered technologies like the advanced image signal processor and unified memory architecture of M1. And with the amazing power efficiency of M1, iPad Pro is still thin and light with all‑day battery life, making it as portable as it is powerful.
Faster performance and graphics. The 8‑core CPU of M1 provides up to 50 per cent faster performance. And M1 has an 8‑core GPU in a class of its own, delivering up to 40 per cent faster graphics performance to iPad Pro. So you can build intricate AR models, play games with console‑quality graphics at high frame rates and more.
12.9″ Liquid Retina XDR display. Best and brightest.
Extreme dynamic range comes to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.2 The Liquid Retina XDR display provides true-to-life detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, great for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos or enjoying your favourite movies and TV shows. It also offers a breathtaking 1,000 nits of full‑screen brightness and 1,600 nits of peak brightness. And advanced display technologies like P3 wide colour, True Tone and ProMotion.
Mini‑LEDs. To achieve extremely high brightness, we used an array of LEDs across the entire back of the display. To fit them in the incredibly thin iPad Pro, we used custom‑designed mini‑LEDs that are 120 times smaller than the last generation. And custom-engineered optical films and diffusers mix the light more efficiently so it can fit in a design that is just 6.4 millimetres thin.
Local dimming zones. Over 10,000 mini‑LEDs are grouped into more than 2,500 local dimming zones. Depending on the content, the brightness in each zone can be precisely adjusted to achieve an amazing 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Even the most detailed HDR content with the finest specular highlights — like galaxies and action movie explosions — are more true to life than ever.
11″ Liquid Retina display.
Easy on the eyes. Easy to carry. The Liquid Retina display on the 11‑inch iPad Pro is not only gorgeous and portable, it also features incredibly advanced technologies. Like ProMotion, True Tone, P3 wide colour and ultralow reflectivity, which make everything feel responsive and look stunning.
5G and Wi‑Fi.
Blazing‑fast connection. iPad has always been uniquely portable with ultrafast Wi‑Fi and mobile data options. Now with 5G capabilities, you can connect to the fastest wireless networks when you need to download files, stream movies, collaborate with colleagues and upload content on the go. And iPad Pro has the most 5G bands of any device of its kind — so it can get 5G in more places.
Wi‑Fi 6. Fast wireless connections are important to getting things done. With Wi‑Fi 6, rest assured that you’ve got the fastest Wi‑Fi available.
Cameras. You’ll want to turn your video on for this.
Ultra Wide camera with Centre Stage. iPad Pro features a new Ultra Wide camera with a 12‑megapixel sensor and a 122‑degree field of view, making it ideal for FaceTime and the new Centre Stage feature. It’s also great for epic Portrait mode selfies. And it works with the TrueDepth camera to securely unlock iPad Pro with Face ID.
Centre Stage. The all‑new Centre Stage utilizes the Ultra Wide camera and machine learning to change the way you participate in video calls. As you move around, it automatically pans to keep you centred in the frame. When others join in or leave the call, the view expands or zooms in. Centre Stage works with FaceTime and other video conferencing apps for an even more engaging experience.
Pro cameras. Wide and Ultra Wide cameras help you capture the perfect photo or video, or even set up a multicamera filmmaking rig. And with the more powerful ISP in the M1 chip, iPad Pro now features Smart HDR 3.
LiDAR. The LiDAR Scanner measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects, so it can create a depth map of any space you’re in and unlock immersive AR experiences. And it works with the powerful ISP to more accurately focus images and videos in low‑light conditions and minimize capture time.
A port that’s ready to rumble.
For powerful creative workflows. Now with Thunderbolt, this is the quickest, most versatile port ever on iPad. It works with existing USB‑C connectors and opens up an extensive ecosystem of high‑performance accessories for iPad Pro — like fast external storage, displays and docks. Transfer huge assets or even drive the Pro Display XDR at full 6K resolution.
Magic Keyboard. Apple Pencil.
Pro accessories. Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard and the Smart Keyboard Folio open up even more ways to use iPad Pro. Draw a masterpiece, take notes or knock out a business plan. These versatile accessories are made to take your work and creativity to the next level.
Apple Pencil. With the power of Apple Pencil, iPad Pro transforms into an immersive drawing canvas and the world’s best note‑taking device. It sets the standard for how drawing, marking up documents and even filling in text fields should feel — intuitive, precise and magical.
Magic Keyboard. Magic Keyboard features a responsive typing experience and a built‑in trackpad that gives you new ways to work with iPadOS. So you can write your novel, crank out an assignment or tear through your inbox. And with backlit keys, you can get things done in any light.
iPadOS. Smooth operating system.
Easy to use. Uniquely iPad. iPadOS builds on the same powerful foundation as iOS, while providing distinct experiences designed for the capabilities of iPad. Multitask effortlessly with touch or navigate the system with a trackpad. And with iPadOS 14, you can do even more, like copy and paste handwritten notes as text and write in any text field with Scribble.
Even more reasons to go Pro.
Thunderbolt has 40‑Gbps bandwidth for connecting to displays, drives and more.
Five studio‑quality microphones record great sound when you shoot video, make music and more.
Four Speaker Audio provides cinema‑like sound and support for Dolby Atmos.
Over 1 million apps on the App Store just for iPad.
New 2TB configuration offers more room to store apps and content.
Like every Apple product, iPad was designed with your privacy and security in mind. It’s not always easy. But that’s the kind of innovation we believe in.
Technology is most powerful when everyone can use it. That’s why iPad comes with accessibility features that support vision, hearing, mobility and learning needs.
