Apple claims that the latest iPad Pro has an M1 processor and 16GB of memory, and that it will not become obsolete anytime soon

The 2021 iPad Pro, which was unveiled at the spring conference this week, drew a lot of interest. Although the appearance remains the same, the configuration is extremely generous, including an M1 processor, up to 16GB RAM+2TB ROM, USB 4.0 interface with Thunderbolt 3 protocol support, 5G network, and 12.9-inch mini LED display. Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of global marketing, and John Ternus, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware research and development, shared some previously undisclosed information during the conversation.

The outside world had believed that the iPad Pro would be fitted with an A14X processor, with output comparable to the M1 but with minor compromises, but Apple had not confirmed this. Joswiak clarified that the processor must be ahead of the APP, and that you cannot wait for the program’s throughput to surpass the system’s processing power. When asked whether this means that applications like Final Cut Pro, which are more effective than the Adobe and Affinity suites, will be released on the iPad Pro, Joswiak deftly dodged the query, emphasizing that “I hope users will purchase an iPad that will not be out of date immediately.”

The biggest obstacle, according to Terns, with the 12.9-inch miniLED monitor used exclusively this time is achieving such a small scale. The iPad is, after all, smaller and lighter than the Pro Display XDR display. Apple has redesigned the iPad Pro’s backlight module and added up to 10,000 LED light control chips, according to him. Furthermore, the two executives invariably stressed that the above-mentioned technological leap was heavily reliant on the adoption of internal Apple-developed technologies.
