At its Spring Loaded event, Apple announced a wide range of products, including the new iPad Pro 2021. The latest device features 5G, a new chip, a Thunderbolt port, and more. The new M1-powered iPad Pro is expected to offer unprecedented performance and also features a brand new ultra-wide front camera that enables Center Stage, a new feature that automatically frames users perfectly for even more engaging video calls. You can pre-order the iPad Pro starting today!
Customers get up to $ 200 back when purchasing the new iPad Pro with Wi-Fi + Cellular when activated with carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile / Sprint, and Verizon. Additionally, you can use Apple Trade-In to exchange your currently eligible devices for an Apple Gift Card or credit toward the purchase of your new iPad Pro. The device will be delivered in the second half of May.
The iPad Pro 2021 has a brand new 12.9-inch display. There’s a Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion technology and True Tone. According to Apple, the 12.9-inch model has more than 10K mini-LEDs, far more than the 72 LEDs of the iPad Pro 2020. On the other hand, the 11-inch version still has an IPS display with LED backlighting with a resolution of 2388 x 1668 at 264 PPI.
Apple has given everything with the new iPad Pro 2021. It equipped the tablet with the M1 chip, which was introduced for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini last year. In theory, the new iPad Pro is just as powerful as the MacBook Air. It has an 8-core CPU and an 8-core GPU with next-generation Neural Engine and up to 16 GB of RAM. You also get Thunderbolt with USB 4 support. This means that the new iPad Pro has 4 times more bandwidth and can support resolution up to 6K on a Pro Display HDR. This is how the new tablet compares with the previous generation.
The 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $ 799 for 128GB of storage and WiFi only and goes up to $ 2,099 for 2TB of storage and WiFi + cellular. In contrast, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro costs $ 1,099 for 128GB of storage (WiFi only) and up to $ 2,399 for 2TB of storage with Cellular. The new Magic Keyboard is also available from Best Buy in both black and white.
The new iPad Pro with the M1 chip can now be pre-ordered from Amazon. The estimated shipping date is May 24th. Both the WiFi-only and cellular variants of the iPad Pro are available on Amazon, while the storage options available on the Amazon table are 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB.
The new iPad Pro takes performance to a new level as Apple integrates the Mac’s M1 chip. In theory, the new iPad Pro is as fast as the MacBook Air. You also get 5G, a Thunderbolt connection, a new mini LED display of the 12.9-inch version and a brand new front camera with center stage.
The new Magic keyboard is the perfect accessory for your M1-iPad Pro. And now it comes in a fresh white border that goes well with the silver hue of the Apple tablet. The Magic Keyboard has illuminated keys with a scissor switch that offers a spring travel of 1 mm. It also supports multi-touch gestures and charging functions, leaving the iPad Pro’s Thunderbolt port free for connection to other devices.
