Apple’s new iPad Pro has been available for some time and has arrived with us Next pit Editing last week. Before we can tell you more about the latest Apple tablet, we need to dig deeper into it in an in-depth review. While you wait, why not quench your curiosity with a quick unboxing video from the 11-inch mobile productivity device?

Another bonus item that can be seen in the video: The brand new Apple Magic Keyboard in white. The iPad Pro (2021) is characterized by its powerful proprietary M1 chip, which recently found its way into a MacBook for the first time. An XDR display is also built into the 12.9-inch model, which promises higher brightness and more natural colors. Unfortunately we cannot get hold of this model to touch or test for the time being.

M1 chip impresses with significantly higher performance and lower energy consumption

The M1 chip has a significantly higher performance than its predecessor, the A12 chipset. Just how much better is it? Apple claims that the M1 chip outperforms the A12 chipset by a whopping 50% – that’s a lot now! The graphics performance is also said to have increased by 40%. This should enable real-time renderings of 3D models and effortless gaming in full 3D, which usually falls in the PC or console space.

The energy consumption has not increased compared to the predecessor, I will go into that in the next few days. My experiences with the M1 chip in the MacBook are (very) promising – with one battery charge I can work with it for a whole day without any problems.

New cool feature: Center Stage for video calls

A new feature that many will love is Center Stage. The 12-megapixel front camera accompanies you everywhere during video calls. If you move during a video call, the camera will follow you and keep you centered.

What sounds like a nice gimmick at first is a really helpful feature in the first review. Not only does it make video calls appear much more dynamic, it also ensures that you stay in the picture during a presentation. More on that later in our Next pit Review.

5G, Thunderbolt, Wi-Fi 6 support and USB 4.0: significantly more performance for professional users

Make no mistake about it, the iPad Pro is specially designed for professional users. It offers both fast physical and wireless interfaces that are not neglected in terms of performance and future security.

Personally, I have been working exclusively on the iPad as my main device for several years when I’m on the go. With the iPad Pro 2021, the range of users should increase, including those who decide to do without a laptop in the future.
