iPad Pro 2021

Apple (MacRumors, Hacker News):

The addition of the Apple-designed M1 chip delivers a massive leap in performance, making iPad Pro the fastest device of its kind. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro features a new Liquid Retina XDR display that brings extreme dynamic range to iPad Pro, offering a stunning visual experience with more true-to-life details to the most demanding HDR workflows. Cellular models with 5G deliver even faster wireless connectivity when on the go, and to provide users with pro-level throughput for high-speed accessories, iPad Pro now includes support for Thunderbolt. Additionally, an all-new Ultra Wide front camera enables Center Stage, a new feature that automatically keeps users perfectly framed for even more engaging video calls.

Juli Clover:

iPad Pro models with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage will come with 8GB RAM, while iPad Pro models with 1TB or 2TB of storage will feature 16GB RAM.


But does it hold a charge? Been very unhappy with the fact that my iPad Pro will drop from 100% to <25% after sitting for three days without any use. What’s the point of a powerful portable device if you can’t trust it will have charge when you go to use it?

The problem with battery life lies with the terrible OS, not the hardware. Since iOS 7, there has been a very steady decline in battery life, due to both added cruft … sorry, “features” nobody asked for … and many, many bugs in the OS.
