The newly launched iPads are the first to be powered by Apple’s custom M1 chips, the same used in its Mac line of laptops and desktops. Apple informed that the new processor powers the iPad Pro with 50% more power than the last-generation iPad Pro, and also makes it 75 times faster than the first iPad. The iPad’s storage has been upgraded to be two times faster than last year’s model. The new launch comes in the same 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes as their predecessors.
Both the devices are available for pre-order on April 30 priced at $799 starting for the 11-inch model and the 12.9-inch version priced at $1,099. The larger iPad Pro has a new kind of display technology called Liquid Retina XDR capable of displaying incredibly vibrant colors.

Users can experience high-end transfer speeds with Thunderbolt cable. Apple has added 5G cellular connectivity to the iPad Pro in both ultra-high speed millimeter-wave 5G and mid-range 5G variants.
