From the previous generation of iPad Pro, the good part is that iPad Pro 2020 is not going to make you want to spend money. When you already have the previous generation. But, on the other hand, we all like to see progress. Because it’s been about 500 days since Apple last refreshed the proline models.
What is new in this iPad?
You get twice the base storage. So that’s always nice and this thing that Apple usually does over time is they move from generation to generation. So the base model is 128 GB, 256 or 512 or a TB of storage. Also, you get 6 GB of ram for both models instead of 4 GB for the previous generation. You get A12 Z Bionic instead of the A12 X and that means in this case, the same CPU. They’ve just enabled a GPU core here which was disabled on the A12 X. So you get a little bit better graphics performance but clearly there’s no reason to upgrade here.
AT A GLANCE
- The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models were updated in March 2020 with a faster A12Z Bionic chip, a new 10MP Ultra Wide camera to complement the traditional 12MP camera, a LiDAR depth scanner for improved augmented reality experiences, and more. There’s also a new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad coming in May, and the new iPad Pro models continue to work with the Apple Pencil 2.
I can’t tell you why we don’t have an A13. As we have in the current model iPhone, the distinctive camera cluster that looks like the iPhone 11 pro or pro max it’s got two cameras, not three like the iPhones there’s no telephoto but they did add a wide-angle instead of just having the 10 MP main camera. You don’t expect much from tablets but these take pretty nice pictures.
New 2020 AR Feature
Apple says that the recording quality is better it does sound a little better. It has three microphones this is nice by the way for the cameras. There’s no portrait mode and night mode for the rear cameras. but there is a portrait mode for the front camera. The new sensor measures the room and depth and where objects are to create a model so that’s for AR. Whether you’re using the IKEA furniture placing functionality or playing an AR game.
If you waved your hand in front of the camera and weird things would happen. If you place a virtual chair it stays grounded on the floor when people walk by. It actually looks like they’re walking by a real piece of furniture. Is this gonna change your world? No! Apple seems excited about this, maybe they’re gonna do some other augmented reality products. Wi-Fi is also upgraded to Wi-Fi 6 so it is now future proof.
Apple iPad pros are expensive and not. It’s starting at $799 for the 11 inches and $999 for the 12.9 inches. Add more money if you want 4G LTE thrown in there and more money as you go up in storage increments. You get 128 GB as a base model configuration. Yes, the CPU bump isn’t that mantra even the GPU bump but these things are wickedly powerful actually if you can tolerate the workflow on an iPad which mostly I find the challenges getting files on and off of the iPad but this is faster to export edit and export 4k video then even the 2020 MacBook Air and that’s kind of insane.
Apple says this can be your new laptop. And If you want a touch experience with an Apple product well this is your only choice. They have a file manager now it’s somewhat less painful to move files around. We do have cloud services to make that easier but they have their new magic keyboard coming May 25th. This adds a trackpad.
iPad Pro 2020 Keyboard
The only uncool thing as ever with Apple is pricing. So for the 11 inches, that magic keyboard is $300 and for the 12.9 inches, it’s $350. A three hundred dollar keyboard accessory for $799 tablet that’s like 40%. Apple Pencil 2 works with these, As well that’s $129. If you want to use it as a laptop a 12.9 inch makes sense for everybody. 11 inch is portability easy to hold lighter
Both have the same liquid Retina display 120Hz Refresh Rate for fluid scrolling, greater responsiveness and smoother motion content. With ProMotion, Apple Pencil is even more responsive with an industry-best, 20-millisecond latency for even more fluid and natural drawing. ProMotion also improves display quality and reduces power consumption by automatically adjusting the display refresh rate to match the movement of the content.
