The new iPad Pro could as powerful as the M1 Mac

March 2, 2021

Apple is rumored to introduce the new tablet this month.

Many are eagerly awaiting what new features Apple will put on the 2021 versions of the iPad Pro. Aside from the rumored mini LED display that will drastically improve the iPad Pro’s screen, the hardware running on the tablet could be as powerful as the M1 chips running on the new Macs.

It is expected that the iPad Pro will sport the A14X Bionic chip based on the A14 chip that first appeared on the iPhone 12 and the iPad Air 4. This alone instantly makes the tablet a true laptop alternative, which should make it easier to ditch that laptop.

As for the design, don’t expect much change from the 2018 and 2020 version but reports say that it will be a little thicker to accommodate the mini LED that’s powering the display. The new mini LED technology should result in improved brightness and contrast ratios, while the 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate will still be present.

Coming with the same 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes, the 2021 iPad Pro will also include 5G support in both sub-6GHz and mmWave networks. The iPhone 12 had similar support, but mmWave was only available for US users, which will likely be the same with the 2021 iPad Pro.

There is no word yet as to when Apple is planning to hold its annual spring event – with some even saying that it might be taking place. Either way, consider us excited.
