Apple iPad Pro 12.9" Mid 2021 5th Gen Overview

Experience the next level of ultimate with the space gray Apple 12.9" iPad Pro, 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, 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 256GB of storage and 8GB 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 wireless connection, so you'll be able to quickly access your network stay productive.

This iPad comes preloaded with iPadOS. Please check your device settings for the latest available update.

General Features

M1 Chip

With M1, the iPad Pro is the fastest device of its kind. It's designed to take full advantage of next-level performance and custom technologies like the advanced image signal processor and unified memory architecture of M1. And with the incredible power efficiency of M1, iPad Pro is still thin and light with all-day battery life of up to 10 hours, making it as portable as it is powerful.

Faster Performance and Graphics

The 8-core CPU of M1 delivers up to 50% faster performance. And M1 has an 8-core GPU in a class of its own, providing up to 40% faster graphics performance to the iPad Pro. So you can build intricate AR models, play games with console-quality graphics at high frame rates, and more.

12.9" Liquid Retina XDR Display with Extreme Dynamic Range

The Liquid Retina XDR display delivers true-to-life detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, which is great for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos or enjoying your favorite movies and TV shows. It also features 1000 nits of full-screen brightness and 1600 nits of peak brightness, plus advanced display technologies like P3 wide color, True Tone, and ProMotion.

10,000 Mini-LEDs

To achieve extremely high brightness, Apple used an array of LEDs across the entire back of the display. To fit them in the incredibly thin iPad Pro, they used custom-designed mini-LEDs that are 120 times smaller than the previous generation. And custom optical films and diffusers mix the light more efficiently so it can fit in a design that's just 6.4mm thin.

Over 2500 Local Dimming Zones

Over 10,000 mini-LEDs are grouped into more than 2500 local dimming zones. Depending on the content, the brightness in each zone can be precisely adjusted to achieve a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Even the most detailed HDR content with the finest specular highlights - like galaxies and action movie explosions - are more true to life than ever.

Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)

Fast wireless connections are critical to getting things done. With Wi-Fi 6, rest assured that you've got fast Wi-Fi available.

Front 12MP Ultra Wide Camera with Center Stage

The iPad Pro features an Ultra Wide camera with a 12MP sensor and a 122° field of view, making it suitable for FaceTime and the Center Stage feature. It's also great for epic Portrait mode selfies and works with the TrueDepth camera to securely unlock iPad Pro with Face ID.

Center Stage

Center Stage uses the Ultra Wide camera and machine learning to change the way you participate in video calls. As you move around, it automatically pans to keep you centered in the frame. When others join in or leave the call, the view expands or zooms in. Center Stage works with FaceTime and other video conferencing apps for an even more engaging experience.

Rear Pro Cameras

12MP Wide and 10MP Ultra Wide cameras help you capture the perfect photo or video, or even set up a multicamera filmmaking rig. And with the more powerful ISP in the M1 chip, the iPad Pro now features Smart HDR 3.

LiDAR

The LiDAR Scanner measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects, so it can create a depth map of almost any space you're in and unlock immersive AR experiences. It works with the powerful ISP to more accurately focus images and videos in low-light conditions and reduce capture time.

40 Gb/s Thunderbolt Connectivity

Now with Thunderbolt, this is the fastest, most versatile port ever on iPad. It works with existing USB Type-C connectors and opens up an extensive ecosystem of high-performance accessories for iPad Pro - like fast external storage, displays, and docks. Transfer huge assets or even drive the Pro Display XDR at full 6K resolution. This port is also compatible with 40 Gb/s USB 4 and 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2.

Pro Accessories

The Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard, and the Smart Keyboard Folio open up even more ways to use iPad Pro. Draw a masterpiece, take notes, or knock out a business plan. These versatile accessories are designed to take your work and creativity to the next level.

Apple Pencil

With the power of Apple Pencil, the iPad Pro transforms into an immersive drawing canvas and an intuitive note-taking device. It sets the standard for how drawing, marking up documents, and even filling in text fields should feel - intuitive, precise, and magical.

Magic Keyboard

Magic Keyboard features a responsive typing experience and a built‑in trackpad that gives you new ways to work with iPadOS. So you can write your novel, crank out a term paper, or rip through your inbox. And with backlit keys, you can get things done in a wide array of lighting conditions. The Magic Keyboard is available two sizes and colors of black or white.

iPadOS

iPadOS builds on the same powerful foundation as iOS, while offering distinct experiences designed for the capabilities of iPad. Multitask effortlessly with touch or navigate the system with a trackpad. And with iPadOS, you can do even more, like copy and paste handwritten notes as text and write in any text field with Scribble.

Even More Reasons to Go Pro

Thunderbolt has a 40 Gb/s bandwidth for connecting displays, drives, and more, while five studio-quality mics record great sound when you shoot video, make music, and more. Working alongside the mics are four speakers that deliver theater-like sound and support for Dolby Atmos.

I bought this mainly because I play guitar and wanted to be able to have my entire music library - guitar tab - on the tablet. I originally had the 11 inch version, but it was just too small for this purpose. It is noticeably heavy. So it feels just below a Mac Book Air. If you want to add a keyboard, you might as well get the Mac Book. The Mac Book has additional app support so you really have to understand why you want to use this for.

This is an awesome machine

I never thought iPad is worth before.Until now, the biggest update make this ipad a really handy tool. My point is the screen, much better than other desktop displays. I really enjoy using it to edit photos watching movies and browsing internet. I rate this iPad 7.5/10, the problem is the iPadOS not fully support the same software As Mac. Hope wwdc 2022 will fix that problem. Recommended
