Astonishing performance. Incredibly advanced displays. Superfast wireless connectivity. Next-level Apple Pencil capabilities. Powerful new features in iPadOS 16. The ultimate iPad experience.
The M2 chip is the next generation of Apple silicon, with an 8‑core CPU that delivers up to 15 percent faster performance and a 10‑core GPU that provides up to 35 percent faster graphics performance.1 With a 40 percent faster Neural Engine to accelerate machine learning tasks and 50 percent more memory bandwidth, M2 brings astonishing performance and new capabilities to iPad Pro. So you can create photorealistic 3D designs, build intricate AR models, and play games with console‑quality graphics at high frame rates faster than ever. All while enjoying all‑day battery life.2
A complete movie studio in your hands.
The high‑performance media engine on M2 accelerates ProRes encode and decode. So you can convert video projects to ProRes up to 3x faster than before.3
ProRes video capture.
Now for the first time you can capture ProRes video, using the high-performance media engine and image signal processor on M2 and advanced cameras on iPad Pro. Five studio‑quality microphones and four‑speaker audio with support for Dolby Atmos let you record and deliver theater‑like sound.
Liquid Retina XDR display. Best and brightest.
Extreme dynamic range on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.4
The Liquid Retina XDR display delivers true-to-life detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, great for viewing and editing HDR photos and videos or enjoying your favorite movies and TV shows. It also features a breathtaking 1000 nits of full‑screen brightness and 1600 nits of peak brightness along with advanced display technologies like P3 wide color, True Tone, and ProMotion. And you can use Reference Mode for a more color-accurate workflow.
To achieve extremely high brightness, we used an array of LEDs across the entire back of the display. To fit them in the incredibly thin iPad Pro, we used custom‑designed mini‑LEDs that are 120 times smaller than in previous generations. Custom‑size optical films and diffusers mix the light more efficiently and fit in a design that’s just 6.4 mm thin.
Local dimming zones.
Over 10,000 mini‑LEDs are grouped into more than 2500 local dimming zones. Depending on the content, the brightness in each zone can be precisely adjusted to achieve an astonishing 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Even the most detailed HDR content with the finest specular highlights — like galaxies and action movie explosions — are more true to life than ever.
Liquid Retina display.
Easy on the eyes. Easy to carry.
The Liquid Retina display on the 11‑inch iPad Pro is not only gorgeous and portable, it also features incredibly advanced technologies.4 Like ProMotion, True Tone, P3 wide color, and ultralow reflectivity, which make everything feel responsive and look stunning.
Expand what’s possible.
Enhanced ways to work.
iPadOS 16 gives you powerful new ways to do more than ever. New desktop-class apps make your workday more productive. Resize and overlap apps to multitask like a pro with Stage Manager.5 And hook up an external display, with resolutions up to 6K, for even more room for all your apps.6
Capture and connect.
On a deeper level.
iPad Pro features an Ultra Wide camera with a 12MP sensor and a 122‑degree field of view, perfect for capturing photos and video for social posts, FaceTime calls with Center Stage, or epic Portrait mode selfies. And it works with the TrueDepth camera to securely unlock iPad Pro with Face ID.
Using the Ultra Wide camera and machine learning, Center Stage changes the way you participate in video calls. As you move around, it automatically adjusts to keep you centered in the frame. When others join in or leave the call, the view expands or zooms in. Center Stage works with FaceTime and other video conferencing apps for an even more engaging experience.
Advanced Wide and Ultra Wide cameras help you capture the perfect photo or video. And now with support for ProRes video capture, iPad Pro is a complete mobile video studio. The more powerful ISP in the M2 chip also supports Smart HDR 4, so photos shot on iPad look even more true to life.
The LiDAR Scanner measures how long it takes light to reflect back from objects, so it can create a depth map of any space you’re in and unlock immersive AR experiences. And it works with the powerful ISP to more accurately focus images and videos in low‑light conditions and reduce capture time.
Wi‑Fi 6E and 5G.
iPad has always been uniquely portable with superfast Wi‑Fi and cellular options. With Wi‑Fi 6E, you’ve got the fastest wireless connection available.7 So you’ll get faster transfers of photos, documents, and large video files.
With 5G capabilities, you can connect to the fastest wireless networks when you need to download files, stream movies, collaborate with colleagues, and upload content on the go. And iPad Pro has the most 5G bands of any device of its kind — so it can get 5G in more places.8
Magic Keyboard. Apple Pencil.
Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard, and the Smart Keyboard Folio open up even more ways to use iPad Pro. Draw a masterpiece, take notes, or knock out a business plan. These versatile accessories are designed to take your work and creativity to the next level.9
With the power of Apple Pencil (2nd generation), iPad Pro transforms into an immersive drawing canvas and the world’s best note‑taking device. It sets the standard for how drawing, marking up documents, and even filling in text fields should feel — intuitive, precise, and magical.
A new dimension of Apple Pencil.
Apple Pencil hover shows you exactly where your Apple Pencil will touch down on your display. So you can write, sketch, and illustrate with even greater precision. Watch apps and widgets expand on the Home Screen as you move over them. Preview your mark before you make it. See how your watercolors mix before you paint. Apple Pencil hover makes everything you do with Apple Pencil even more effortless.5
When Apple Pencil hovers over the display, electromagnetic signals emitted from the tip are detected by the screen up to 12 mm away. M2 instantly interprets those signals and determines the position of Apple Pencil in three dimensions.
Magic Keyboard features a responsive typing experience and a built‑in trackpad that gives you many more ways to work with iPadOS. So you can write your novel, crank out a term paper, or rip through your inbox. And with backlit keys, you can get things done in any light.
Amazing apps for every workflow.
Built-in and App Store apps.
Do amazing things with incredible apps designed specifically for iPad. iPad Pro comes with essential Apple-designed apps like Safari, Messages, and Keynote. And over a million more apps are available on the App Store.
