Apple has one surprise in store when it comes to the pricing: Most configurations of the iPad Pro are cheaper or at least offer more storage for the same price. Furthermore, all iPad Pro 11 2020 models are equipped with 6 GB of RAM and the base model already offers 128 GB of internal storage, whereas the base model of the predecessor only offered half the storage.
The iPad Pro 11 2020 is equipped with LIDAR sensors that are integrated into the camera module. They measure the time that light takes to travel to an object and use the results to gain a three-dimensional impression of a room. Apple also uses this for augmented reality applications.
Software – iPad OS on Board
The Apple iPad Pro 11 2020 ships with iPad OS, which can be found on most of the recent iPads. The user interface of the OS has been optimized for the larger displays, which is something iOS was unable to achieve on older devices. Another important factor is, of course, support for the iPad Pro’s accessories such as the Keyboard Folio and Apple Pencil 2. The current version 13.4 now also comes with support for trackpads and thus the associated mouse cursor. A mouse can be connected to the iPad Pro as well.
Communication and GPS – iPad Pro with Fast Internet
Naturally, the iPad Pro comes with the latest Wi-Fi standard Wi-Fi 6, which according to our tests with our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12, it uses to an even greater effect than its predecessor. The fact that it goes head-to-head with other high-end tablets illustrates that the Wi-Fi transfer rates can match or even outperform even the fastest competitors.
In proximity to the router, the signal is at full strength, web pages load very quickly and images are loaded without delays. At a distance of 10 meters from the access point and through three walls, the signal strength is still at about 66% and while the loading times are then marginally higher, they are still very fast.
