Key notes

  • Apple unveiled the latest iPad Pro with the M4 chip, boasting faster performance and a thinner design.

  • The iPad Pro starts at $999 (WiFi) and $1,299 (WiFi) respectively, with pre-orders open now.

Apple is back with a huge announcement. On Tuesday, the iPhone makers announced the latest iPad Pro with a new M4 chip, and it’s said to be “outrageously fast.”

Apple said that the new iPad Pro sports a super thin chassis and light design, coming in 13-inch and 11-inch variants. The M4 chip can deliver up to 1.5x faster CPU performance and 4x faster rendering for pro apps like Octane.

And that’s not baseless at all. The tablet, as Apple claims, boasts Apple’s most potent Neural Engine yet, performing 38 trillion per second. Coupled with advanced ML accelerators and dev frameworks in iPadOS, it excels in AI tasks, like isolating subjects in 4K videos with Scene Removal Mask in Final Cut Pro, for example.

In the display department, the M4 iPad Pro also boasts the Ultra Retina XDR, featuring tandem OLED tech for better brightness, and nano-texture glass for reduced glare. It also comes with various options for storage: 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB, and of course, the new Apple Pencil Pro with a native support for Find My.

Is it a bang for your buck? That’s the question. The 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $999 (WiFi) and $1,999 (WiFi & Cellular). Its bigger sister comes with $1,299 (WiFi) and $1,499 (WiFi & Cellular) price tags, but it’s a lot cheaper for education. 

You can pre-order the new iPad Pro with M4 here, but don’t fret if your country isn’t on the list just yet. Apple promises that it’s gradually rolling the product out to more markets.
