Latest Apple iPad Pro is a powerful, future tablet, with the same chipset as the MacBook Air, u MacBook Pro, and in the new iMac. Although it’s been almost a month, Amazon has already cut the price of the larger 12.9-inch model with WiFi and 256 GB of memory. Now, the iPad Pro is available for $ 1,099, a $ 100 savings, which you can put towards a keyboard.
We gave the “immensely powerful” tablet a review point of 87 when it came out. The M1 system on one chip handles even the most demanding tasks – such as 4K video editing – relatively quickly. The significance of gaming and surfing the Internet is a breeze for the powerful processor. As for the battery, Apple says you can expect 10 hours of use from a single charge, which we handled in our review most of the time.
As for the design, the new model is a bit thicker and heavier, but it’s mostly for the Liquid Retina XDR display, which takes up more space than Apple’s traditional LCDs. The change is particularly noticeable when you’re streaming. The full screen brightness pulls up to 1,000 nits when watching a movie or video, and bright elements in HDR can reach 1,600 nits.
The front-facing camera has also received an update: It now sports an ultra-wide 12-megapixel sensor that should spruce up FaceTime and Zoom calls. A new feature called Central Stage, meanwhile, uses machine learning and the expansive field of view to keep you focused on the frame, even when you’re moving.
In addition, the new Apple iPad 15 is due in the fall, with new features including a redesigned Home screen with built-in widgets and the App Library, new multitasking tools and views, and a Notes update that lets you share notes and quickly access the app.
In summary, the iPad Pro is a truly premium device with a rich variety of features. As you may know from the price, it looks closer to a laptop than a regular tablet. Apple also offers storage options up to 2 TB, a smaller 11-inch screen and 5G support. All of which can range in price from $ 799 for the base model to a cool $ 2,399 for the higher specced version.
