According to the latest news, Apple is working on the first iPad to feature a Mini-LED display. The company says it will arrive soon with some unexpectedly impressive internals. It appears the 2021 iPad Pro is shaping up to be a shoo-in for our best drawing tablets list.
The essential thing to mention is that the new iPad Pro 2021 could be even more powerful than we thought it would be. The latest leak suggests that its chipset could be as capable as the M1 used in the latest Macs.
Mark Gurman, who has an excellent track record for Apple leak, claims that the upcoming slate will have a new processor that’s “on par” with the M1 chip. That means an even better chipset than the A14 Bionic found in the iPhone 12 range.
Apple will hold an event on 16 March.
Undoubtedly, the new iPad would be fast. However, M1-level performance sounds pretty impressive for creatives. It was unexpected for any of Apple’s tablets to rival the M1 Macs for a while. However, it makes sense for the company to distinguish the iPad Pro from less powerful models. Furthermore, there isn’t a lot of difference between the Air and the Pro. We’ve even wondered whether the iPad Air 4 has made the current iPad Pro irrelevant.
According to some resources, the new iPad Pro can become the first Apple tablet to sport a mini-LED display, providing much higher contrast and brightness. Anything that makes the iPad an even sharper digital canvas can only be a good thing for designers.
An impossibly fast chip and incredible screen tech could make the 2021 iPad Pro the ultimate tablet for creatives. Furthermore, we might not have to wait long to find out. Apple will hold an event on 16 March, where redesigned AirPods could join a new iPad Pro.
