Review Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) – Different from the regular iPad and iPad Air, the iPad Pro is more intended for those who need high performance for professional work. So that the use of the Apple M1 chip is indeed present as an increase that will be appreciated by its users. Although still present in a similar model.
The use of the chip with the 8-core CPU provides a performance increase of up to 50% when compared to the A12Z Bionic.
Meanwhile, the graphics processing ability increased by up to 40%. Even when compared to the 1st generation iPad, the GPU upgrade in iPad Pro 2021 is 1500 times better. Combined with up to 2TB of storage options for up to 2 times the speed
The iPad Pro 2021 comes with a capacity of 16GB. Plus, it supports Thunderbolt and the USB 4 standard which supports bandwidth up to 40Gbps. So it supports external monitors including Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution.
Not only externally, the 12.9-inch variant of the iPad Pro 2021 also uses the Liquid Retina XDR panel, for the best quality and accuracy. Apple uses more than 10 thousand mini LEDs, which can light up to a maximum of 1600 nits, with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1. Suitable for filmmakers and other professional purposes.
The front camera has also been upgraded, although the position is still slightly wrong because it is on the left side in a landscape position. The sensor is now 12MP, and uses the Ultra Wide type up to 122 degrees. In addition to being able to produce portrait photos, Apple has embedded the Center Stage feature, where the video frame automatically follows human objects, zooming automatically because of its wide viewing angle.
The Center Stage feature will also work in third-party applications. While the ISP and Neural Engine of the M1 chip support Smart HDR 3. Combined with the LiDAR Scanner on the rear camera, taking photos and videos in low light conditions will be better, with faster focus.
