Apple 12.9″ iPad Pro M1 Chip (Mid 2021, 1TB, Wi-Fi + 5G LTE, Space Gray)
EA. Experience the next level of ultimate with the Apple 12.9″ iPad Pro M1 Chip (Mid 2021, 1TB, Wi-Fi + 5G LTE, Space Gray), which features performance that is supercharged by Apple’s M1 8-Core chip with an 8-Core GPU and a 16-Core Neural Engine, a Liquid Retina XDR display, 5G wireless and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), a 12MP Ultra Wide camera with Center Stage, and 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt connectivity. All of this helps turn your iPad into a true portable powerhouse that can double as a performance and production studio, as it is can deliver all-day battery life, as well as the power needed to build intricate AR models, play games with console-quality graphics at high frame rates, and more.
The iPad Pro’s Liquid Retina XDR display features the same XDR technology found on Apple’s Pro Display XDR and has a 2732 x 2048 resolution, the P3 wide color gamut, ProMotion support with a 120 Hz refresh rate, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and True Tone for comfortable viewing. There is also 600 nits of max brightness for SDR content, as well as 1000 nits of max full-screen brightness and 1600 nits of peak brightness for HDR content. On the front, Apple has introduced a 12MP Ultra Wide Camera with Center Stage, which uses the 12MP Ultra Wide 1080p camera and machine learning to automatically pan, zoom, expand, and actively adjust the frame during video calls, whether it’s just you or multiple participants. On the rear, there are 12MP Wide and 10MP Ultra Wide cameras for 4K, Full HD, and multi-cam filmmaking with Smart HDR 3. The LiDAR scanner is retained, which determines distance by determining light reflection and further readies possibilities for augmented reality and beyond.
Apple has also equipped the iPad Pro with 1TB of storage and 16GB RAM, plus a 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt port with a USB Type-C interface for driving displays, including the Pro Display XDR at full 6K resolution, as well as external storage and docks. Moving to the audio side of things, the iPad Pro retains its five studio-quality mics and delivers theater-like sound and support for Dolby Atmos with four-speaker audio. Also carried over from previous models is support for a trackpad, Apple’s Pencil (2nd Gen), Smart Keyboard Folio, and the Magic Keyboard. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) ensures a fast Wi-Fi connection, and 5G LTE will allow network connectivity when Wi-Fi is not available, so long as you have a separately-sold data plan.
This iPad comes preloaded with iPadOS. Please check your device settings for the latest available update.
