Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch M1 5th Generation (2021) Wi-Fi Review and Features

The fifth-generation iPad Pro, also known as the M1 iPad Pro, is a line of iPad tablet computers developed and marketed by Apple Inc.

Announced on April 20, 2021, it was available with the same screen size options as its predecessor: 11-inch (28 cm) and 12.9-inch (33 cm). Preorders began on April 30, 2021, and the product was released worldwide on May 21, 2021. It comes in two colours: Silver and Space Gray.

Significant upgrades over the previous generation include the new Apple M1 processor, the addition of 5G support in cellular models, and support for Thunderbolt 3 and USB. For the 12.9-inch model, a new mini LED Liquid Retina XDR display.

In spite of minor differences in weight and thickness due to hardware upgrades, the tablet is virtually identical to its predecessor. The weight of the 12.9-inch model has increased from 641 grams to 682 grams, while that of the 11-inch model has decreased from 471 grams to 466 grams.

It is compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil and the Magic Keyboard; Apple designed a revised variant of the Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch model due to its change in thickness.

The fifth generation iPad Pro uses an Apple M1 SoC, which is the first iPad not based on a customary A-series processor. The M1 features an eight-core CPU in a hybrid configuration with four high-performance and high-efficiency cores, an eight-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine.

The cellular model supports mmWave 5G and allows speed up to 4 Gbit/s in ideal conditions. Internal storage options include 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB. The 128, 256, and 512 GB versions include 8 GB of RAM, while the 1 and 2 TB versions are bundled with 16 GB of RAM.

The fifth generation iPad Pro debuted support of Thunderbolt 3 and USB4 with its USB-C port. The latter can transfer data at up to 40 Gigabits per second and can be used to connect external displays, such as the Pro Display XDR.

The 11-inch model has a Liquid Retina display with a peak brightness of 600 nits, which is the same as the 11-inch model of the 3rd and 4th generations.

The 12.9-inch model, in contrast, boasts a mini LED HDR display called the Liquid Retina XDR display built-in with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, full-screen brightness of 1000 nits, and a peak brightness of 1600 nits (HDR). Both models support True Tone, ProMotion, 120 Hz variable refresh rate, and P3 wide colour gamut.

It supports a dual camera system in the back. In addition to a 12 MP wide camera with an aperture of ƒ/1.8 and another 10 MP ultra-wide camera with a ƒ/2.4 aperture and a 125º field of view. A brighter True Tone flash is also included.

It features an ultra-wide 12 MP 122º-field front-facing camera that enables Apple’s “Center Stage” technology, which pinpoints the users’ positions and automatically tracks the camera view according to the perspectival centre. The Wide Cameras can record videos at up to 4k and 60fps per second.

All cameras have Smart HDR 3, the same HDR technology present in the iPhone 12 series. It includes the same sensors as its predecessors: Face ID, Lidar, three-axis gyroscope, an accelerometer, a barometer, and an ambient light sensor.

The iPad Pro uses 100% recycled aluminium, and sources at least 98% recycled rare earth element supplies. It is free of harmful substances, as defined by Apple’s proprietary “Apple Regulated Substances Specification”.

Did You Know?

Jobs stole from partner and co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak. When the pair first created the Breakout game for Atari, they planned on splitting the pay 50-50. Although Atari gave Jobs $5,000 for the game, Jobs told Wozniak they got $700, leaving Wozniak to take home $350 while Jobs pocketed the other $4,650

Aple Quotes

“Finally Jobs proposed Apple Computer. “I was on one of my fruitarian diets,” he explained. “I had just come back from the apple farm. It sounded fun, spirited, and not intimidating. Apple took the edge off the word ‘computer.’ Plus, it would get us ahead of Atari in the phone book”
― Steve Jobs
