After a very discreet last update, we have been waiting for months for a new quality leap in the iPad Pro. A few hours ago, the well-known insider Mark Gurman published in Bloomberg interesting details about the new machines that, he claims, will be presented next April.
The new iPad Pro to arrive in April
The iPad Pro has always lived up to its surname by offering impressive power, sometimes matching or surpassing laptops and desktops. The 2021 version will be no exception and will integrate the new A14X, the best SoC seen in iOS to date and which could offer performance similar to the M1s that marked the debut of Apple Silicon and the applause of technology critics.
Also, this improvement is likely to involve an increase in available RAM to 8GB (the first generation started from 4 and the 2020 generation left all models with 6GB). Similarly, a jump in storage from the base model to at least 512GB would be interesting.
Among other new features, Gurman highlights the Thunderbolt connection, using the same USB-C port that Macs already have. With it, it will be possible to connect more external monitors and higher resolution, several storage units, and, in general, offer a significant leap in quality compared to what is already offered by the current USB-C standard.
The same source explains that the 12.9″ model, the technical star, would feature an impressive retina panel with mini-LED technology that will offer the best image quality seen in a device of this type and a tighter consumption, offering more autonomy in real use.
As usual, there is no official confirmation or information from Apple. Being a major update, it is to be expected that in the coming weeks we will receive an invitation to the press and a virtual event will be convened to learn all the details of the new generation of iPad Pro. We will stay tuned and, as always, we will tell you about it in detail on MC.
