iPad Pro 2021
The new iPad Pro 2021 is casting its shadow ahead and giving itself away in advance. Why? Apple is hiding undisputed and clear indications of the new Apple tablet in the depths of the next software update.
In the now published fifth beta of the upcoming iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, the colleagues from 9to5Mac and MacRumors found what they were looking for. In the update, Apple is now hiding clear references to the new processor of the iPad Pro 2021, as well as new code names for previously unpublished iPads. Ergo: All in all, solid evidence for the new iPad Pro 2021, which is expected in April.
iPad Pro 2021: Apple A14X “escaped”
And which processor will now do its job in the iPad Pro 2021? The previously unpublished Apple A14X is used. Contrary to what the name would suggest, it is only indirectly based on Apple’s A14 from the iPhone 12. According to 9to5Mac, the A14X is based specifically on the “T8103”, Apple’s code name for the M1, which is used in the new Macs.
From the outside, the iPad Pro 2020 and iPad Pro 2021 will not really differ, the rumor mill agrees:
On closer inspection, this seems logical, because the Bloomberg experts already mentioned that the A14X is on a performance level with the M1. There are no longer any differences in performance between MacBook, Mac mini and iPad Pro 2021 to be expected.
What can you expect from the new professional tablet?
The new iPad Pro 2021 is expected in April. Apart from the new chip, Apple will offer an option for 5G connectivity, and the integration of Thunderbolt is also speculated. You can also count on improved cameras. The display sizes (12.9 and 11 inches) remain the same, but Apple is to use mini-LEDs for the first time in the 12.9-inch model – an inexpensive alternative to expensive OLED screens.
