Apple is getting ready to introduce two new editions of the iPad Pro after launching the new iPad Air with an iPad Pro-like design and USB-C connection late last year. An iPad Pro variant with a Mini LED display and a Thunderbolt connector will be released by the Cupertino giant as early as April of this year, according to a recent report.
According to a story (paywalled) from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple plans to add two new iPad Pro models to its inventory. The design of the next iPads will be similar to that of the iPad Pro already in use. They purportedly have screen sizes of 12.9 inches and 11 inches. These will also have upgraded cameras as an added bonus.
New iPad Pro with Mini LED Display and Thunderbolt
The next iPad Pros will have an upgraded A14X CPU, according to the rumour. This will be comparable to the Apple M1 processor found in the most recent Mac Mini, MacBook Air, and Mac Book Pro models. Additionally, Apple wants to include a Mini-LED display, at least on the larger 12.9-inch device. This confirms earlier reports from 2020 that said the same thing. Additionally, according to Gurman, the new Mini-LED panel would have a brighter brightness and a better contrast ratio.
Additionally, Apple wants to provide the future iPads support for Thunderbolt. The business is reportedly testing new iPad Pro models with Thunderbolt ports, which are compatible with the most recent Macs equipped with Apple M1 processors. For those who were curious, the new port won’t need a new charger. However, it will enable users to connect the iPad to suitable peripherals such as external monitors, hard drives, and other devices. Furthermore, compared to current USB-C ports, the new Thunderbolt interface delivers substantially quicker data syncing capabilities.
According to Gurman, Apple plans to introduce the new iPad models as soon as next month. But as of right moment, nothing has been officially announced. Check out the article in the link if you’re interested in learning what other goods Apple is planning to release in 2021.
