Apple Launches New iPad Pro Powered By Its Own M1 Processor

Apple has launched the next generation of its iPad Pro with the most significant improvements to the device on its inside. The new iPad Pro will be powered by a new eight-core M1 processor.


The M1 processor is the same chip that powers the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini. Apple says that the chip will deliver “a big jump in performance” over the previous generation.


For example, the graphics performance is more than 1,500 times faster than previous generations according to Apple. The chip also adds new features, like a “next-generation 16-core Apple Neural engine” and an advanced image signal processor. According to Apple, you can expect up to 10 hours of battery life from Wi-Fi models and nine hours from the Wi-Fi + Cellular models.

On the camera side, Apple says the ISP and LIDAR scanner will capture “incredible details” in low-light conditions. The device also features a TrueDepth camera system in the front of the device. The TrueDepth camera allows users to unlock it with facial recognition. There’s also a new 12MP ultrawide camera with a 120-degree field of view. The camera ships with a new feature called Center Stage that automatically pans to follow you around during video calls.


The iPad Pro will support the Apple Pencil, the Smart Keyboard Folio, and the Magic Keyboard. It also supports both the PS5 and Xbox controllers with haptics for gaming.


According to Apple, the new iPad Pro uses a 100 percent recycled aluminum enclosure, and the magnets in the enclosure and the speakers include 100 percent “recycled rare earth elements”.
