Incredibly advanced displays. Superfast wireless connectivity. Next-level Apple Pencil capabilities. Powerful new features in iPadOS 16. The ultimate iPad experience.
The M2 chip is the next generation of Apple silicon, with an 8‑core CPU that delivers up to 15 per cent faster performance and a 10‑core GPU that provides up to 35 per cent faster graphics performance.1 With a 40 per cent faster Neural Engine to accelerate machine learning tasks and 50 per cent more memory bandwidth, M2 brings astonishing performance and new capabilities to iPad Pro. So you can create photorealistic 3D designs, build intricate AR models and play games with console‑quality graphics at high frame rates faster than ever. All while enjoying all‑day battery life.
A complete film studio in your hands.
The high-performance media engine on M2 accelerates ProRes encode and decode. You can convert video projects to ProRes up to 3x faster than before. And with the image signal processor in M2 and advanced cameras on iPad Pro, you can now capture ProRes video. Five studio‑quality microphones and four-speaker audio with support for Dolby Atmos let you record and deliver cinema‑quality sound.
Liquid Retina XDR display. Brightest and best.
Extreme dynamic range on the 12.9-inch and 11 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 favourite movies and TV shows. It also features a breathtaking 1,000 nits of full‑screen brightness and 1,600 nits of peak brightness along with advanced display technologies like P3 wide colour, True Tone and ProMotion. And you can use Reference Mode for a more colour-accurate workflow.
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 in previous generations. Custom‑size optical films and diffusers mix the light more efficiently and fit in a design that’s just 6.4 millimetres thin.
Local dimming zones.
Over 10,000 mini‑LEDs are grouped into more than 2,500 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.
Enhanced ways to work.
iPadOS 16 gives you powerful new ways to do more than ever. New desktop-class apps make your workday more productive. Resize and overlap apps to multitask like a pro with Stage Manager.5 And hook up an external display, with resolutions up to 6K, for even more room for all your apps.
Using the Ultra Wide camera and machine learning, Centre Stage changes the way you participate in video calls. As you move around, it automatically adjusts to keep you centred in the frame. When others join in or leave the call, the view expands or zooms in. Centre Stage works with FaceTime and other video conferencing apps for an even more engaging experience.
