The new iPad Pro comes in two sizes:11inch and 12.9 inch. While everyone was expecting a Mini LED display with iPads latest version but the biggest surprise came with the M1 processor. IPad Pro comes equipped with the ultra-powerful Apple M1 processor that is also used in MacBook Air,Mac Mini and the iMac. The design of this latest version is much similar to the iPad Pro design introduced in 2018.iPad Pro also features a 12MP wide angle front facing camera and a thunderbolt 4 Port.

 The new Liquid Retina XDR display that brings extreme dynamic range to iPad Pro, offering a stunning visual experience with more true-to-life details to the most demanding HDR workflows. While the 11-inch version uses the same IPS LCD screen as that of the iPad Pro (2020), the 12.9-inch version uses the brand-new Liquid Retina XDR Display with Mini-LED backlighting. The new screen also supports a 120Hz variable refresh rate, WCG (Wide Colour Gamut), True Tone, and HDR (HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision).

Ultra Wide camera with Centre 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 Centre Stage feature. Center Stage uses the much larger field of view on the new front camera and the machine learning capabilities of M1 to recognize and keep users centered in the frame. As users move around, Centre Stage automatically pans to keep them in the shot.  It’s also great for epic Portrait mode selfies. And it works with the TrueDepth camera to securely unlock iPad Pro with Face ID.

 Additional New Features of iPad Pro

  • Apple Pencil -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

Ultimately, Apple’s latest iPad Pro feels like a flex. It’s a showcase of the versatility of the M1 chip – how it can power desktops, notebooks, and even tablets that are just 6.4mm thick. And as fantastic as this new iPad Pro is, the Mac user in me cannot help but be excited for Macs. If Apple can get its M1 chip to run so fluidly in a form factor that’s this compact think about the possibilities for Macs. This new iPad Pro is great but it's a sign that the future of Macs could be even greater.
