iPad Pro 2021
Supercharged by the Apple M1 Chip
The ultimate iPad experience
Now with breakthrough M1 performance, a breathtaking XDR display, and blazing‑fast 5G wireless. Buckle up.
iPad Pro and M1. Power couple.
With M1, 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, making it as portable as it is powerful.
• 8-core CPU
• 8-core GPU
• 16-core Neural Engine
Faster performance and graphics.
The 8‑core CPU of M1 delivers up to 50 percent faster performance. And M1 has an 8‑core GPU in a class of its own, providing up to 40 percent faster graphics performance to iPad Pro. So you can build intricate AR models, play games with console‑quality graphics at high frame rates, and more.
• 50% faster CPU performance
• 40% faster graphic
12.9” Liquid Retina XDR display. Best and brightest.
Extreme dynamic range comes to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The Liquid Retina XDR display delivers true-to-life detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, great for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos or enjoying your favorite movies and TV shows. It also features a breathtaking 1000 nits of full‑screen brightness and 1600 nits of peak brightness. And advanced display technologies like P3 wide color, True Tone, and ProMotion.
• 1000 nits full-screen brightness
• 1600 nits peak brightness (HDR)
• True Tone for comfortable viewing
• 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio
• ProMotion adaptive 120Hz refresh rate
• P3 wide color gamut
Powered by over 10,000 mini‑LEDs
To achieve extremely high brightness, we used an array of LEDs across the entire back of the display. To fit them in the incredibly thin iPad Pro, we 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 an astonishing 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.
Fast wireless connections are critical to getting things done. With Wi‑Fi 6, rest assured that you’ve got the fastest Wi‑Fi available.
Cameras. You’ll want to turn your video on for this.
Ultra Wide camera with Center Stage.
iPad Pro features a new Ultra Wide camera with a 12MP sensor and a 122‑degree field of view, making it perfect for FaceTime and the new Center Stage feature. It’s also great for epic Portrait mode selfies. And it works with the TrueDepth camera to securely unlock iPad Pro with Face ID.
12MP Ultra Wide camera
TrueDepth unlocks iPad with Face ID
The all‑new 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.
Wide and 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, iPad Pro now features Smart HDR 3.
• 12MP Wide camera
• 10MP Ultra Wide camera
The LiDAR Scanner measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects, so it can create a depth map of any space you’re in and unlock immersive AR experiences. And it works with the powerful ISP to more accurately focus images and videos in low‑light conditions and reduce capture time.
Thunderbolt. A port that’s ready to rumble.
For powerful creative workflows.
Now with Thunderbolt, this is the fastest, most versatile port ever on iPad. It works with existing USB‑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.
• Up to 40 Gbps bandwidth for wired connections.
With the power of Apple Pencil, iPad Pro transforms into an immersive drawing canvas and the world’s best 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.
