At its Spring Loaded event, Apple announced that the next generation of the iPad Pro series will now run on the M1 chip as part of its move to silicon.
If we know that the new tablets are very powerful, what other changes has Apple made since last year and are they enough to consider an upgrade? Read this article to find out.
Among other news, the Cupertino-based company also unveiled Air Tags, a next-generation Apple TV 4K with an updated Siri Remote, an Apple Podcast subscription, and the purple iPhone 12 and 12 Mini.

While the screen played a major role in the iPad Air upgrade, you won’t notice much difference with the newer models, including the 11-inch iPad Pro.
The 11- and 12.9-inch 2020 models feature the same display technology as the smaller 2021 iPad Pro, while the 12.9-inch 2021 model features the much-talked-about mini-LED display.
The latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro has 10,000 LEDs in the panel, compared to 72 LEDs in the other three devices. As a result, the screen achieves 2,500 local dimming zones, a contrast ratio of one million to one and a maximum brightness of 1,600 nits.

Comparing the camera hardware from one generation to the next, the sensor range at the back remains the same with the 12-megapixel wide-angle shooter, the 10-megapixel ultra-wide-angle scanner and the LIDAR scanner. But with computerized photography, you can get better results with the new equipment.
While the hardware on the back is similar, the front camera system has changed on the 2021 models as they now feature a 12-megapixel wide-angle shooter that allows for a central position.
This feature uses a wide field of view to capture more information and change the frame based on the subject’s movement within the frame – it’s unclear if this wide camera will improve Face ID performance.

Speaking of processors: At this point, last year’s iPad Pro series loses ground on the new generation, as it uses the M1 chip, which is known for its high energy efficiency ratio.
While there’s no official information on how powerful the M1 will be compared to the A12Z, the new models will be capable of more, assuming Apple starts developing software to take advantage of all the available features – we’re looking at WWDC 2021.
In terms of RAM, the 2020 series will have a maximum memory capacity of 6 GB for all storage options, while the 2021 series will have 8 GB when purchasing a device with 128, 256 or 512 GB of internal storage; when purchasing a 1 TB or 2 TB tablet, users will get an M1 chip with 16 GB of internal storage.

Among other changes, the single USB-C port has been replaced with a single Thunderbolt USB-4 port, which allows you to connect an external display with up to 6K resolution compared to previous models.
The new cellular models also feature 5G connectivity and can achieve claimed download speeds of 3.5 Gbps; mmWave versions in the US achieve up to 4 Gbps.
Apart from these changes, the devices are largely identical.
Unless the iPad is your only computer, these new devices are in what could be considered overkill. I’m still happy with the performance the iPad Pro offers in 2018.
So if you already have an iPad Pro or even an iPad Air 2020, the upgrade may not be necessary unless the announcements at this year’s WWDC change the workflow on the iPad that can use the extra power.
