Liquid Retina XDR display
iPad Pro’s Liquid Retina XDR display delivers crisp detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, that’s great for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos or enjoying your favourite movies and TV shows. It features 1,000 nits of full‑screen brightness and 1,600 nits of peak brightness and there’s advanced display technologies such as P3 wide colour, True Tone and ProMotion for you too.
Thanks to the M1 chip, iPad Pro 2021 is designed to take full advantage of next‑level performance. Custom technologies like the advanced image signal processor and unified memory architecture of M1 are ready and waiting to assist with whatever you can throw at them. Helpfully, M1’s power efficiency means iPad Pro has all‑day battery life, so this tablet is thin and light, and as portable as it is powerful.
Face ID on iPad
Thanks to Face ID, it takes just a glance to unlock your iPad, or a gentle swipe up to access features. It's engineered for secure unlocking, and works in both portrait and landscape orientations. You can even log-in to apps and pay securely with just a glance, so there's less passwords to remember.
Featuring a new, front facing, ultra wide camera with a 12MP sensor and a 122‑degree field of view, you’re all set for FaceTime adventures or epic Portrait mode selfies.
The iPad Pro’s rear wide and ultra wide cameras are able to help you capture the perfect photo or video, or even set up a multi-camera filmmaking rig. Thanks to the more powerful ISP in the M1 chip, iPad Pro now features Smart HDR 3.
The handy, custom-designed LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is ready to analyse distance by measuring how long it takes light to reach an object (from up to five meters away) and reflect back. It opens up huge possibilities for augmented reality and beyond.
Apple iPad Pro now houses a Thunderbolt port, which is the fastest, and most versatile port ever on iPad. It works with existing USB‑C connectors and opens up an extensive ecosystem of high‑performance accessories for iPad Pro, such as fast external storage, displays and docks. You’ll be able to transfer huge assets or even drive the Pro Display XDR at full 6K resolution.
