As speculated earlier, Apple has silently launched the new 2022 iPad Pro with the latest M2 chip, a new Apple Pencil Hover experience, and much more. The new iPad Pro succeeds last year’s M1 iPad Pro. Have a look at the details.
M2 iPad Pro: Specs and Features
The new iPad Pro comes in two display variants. There’s the 11-inch Liquid Retina display with the ProMotion tech and the bigger 12.9-inch Liquid Retina XDR screen, again, with the ProMotion tech. There’s support for up to 1600 nits of peak brightness.
The latest M2 chip powering the new iPad Pro is around 15% faster than the M1 chip and provides 35% faster graphics performance. The chip supports a new media engine and the image signal processor, which enable improved camera performance and features like ProRes videos. There’s support for up to 2TB of storage.
There are dual cameras at the back: a 12MP main camera and a 10MP ultra-wide lens, along with a 12MP TrueDepth front snapper. There’s support for Smart HDR, up to 5x digital zoom, 4K video recording, Portrait Lighting, Center Stage, and more.
Another highlight of the 2022 iPad Pro is the 2nd Gen Apple Pencil, which can now work even 12mm above the display, which will be the “Hover” experience. This feature will call for more precision and convenient usage of the stylus. Third-party apps can also make use of it.
The new iPad Pro comes with Wi-Fi 6E, 5G support, Bluetooth version 5.3, a quad-speaker setup with five studio-quality microphones, and up to 10 hours of battery life. Port options include a USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4, port, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt 3, USB 4, and USB 3.1 Gen 2. It also comes with Face ID and runs iPadOS 16 with features like Stage Manager, Live Text and Visual Look Up, and more.
