The M1-equipped iPad Pro sets a new iPad record for speed. It takes full advantage of new-generation processor performance and a host of unique technologies like the M1's advanced image signal processor and unified memory architecture.

M1 is also exceptionally energy-efficient, so iPad Pro maintains a thin and light form factor while delivering morning-to-night battery life - a truly exquisite blend of power and portability. Performance and graphics are both accelerated. The M1 chip features an 8-core CPU that boosts performance by up to 50 percent, and its 8-core graphics processor gives iPad Pro a graphics performance boost of up to 40 percent. With this kind of performance in hand, it's easy to build complex augmented reality models and play games with console-quality graphics at high frame rates.

It also supports the fastest 5G network available, with millimeter wave support and download speeds of up to 4Gbps.

The front 12 million ultra-wide-angle lenses, supports portrait centering function. During a video call, when a person is detected entering the lens, the person is automatically adjusted to the middle of the screen, and if there are more people, the lens is also pulled farther away to keep more people in the picture. The rear lens module supports HDR 3 technology and is still equipped with Lidar, which can still capture good images in almost total darkness.
