Apple released the improved version of the iPad Pro, which is “the ultimate iPad experience with the most advanced technology.”

Its GPU has hardware-accelerated mesh shading and ray tracing. Also, the iPad Pro offers the following noteworthy features: 

FEATURED STORIES
  • OLED display: Both versions have an Ultra Retina XDR display with tandem OLED technology. The latter involves two displays stacked on top of each other, producing better detail and more vibrant colors. Moreover, you may choose a matte nano-texture to reduce glare. 
  • Camera: Apple moved the front camera to the tablet’s landscape side. The company says it is the optimal position for video calls when attached to a keyboard. 
  • Thin design: The 2024 13-inch iPad Pro is thinner than the iPod nano, measuring 5.1mm. As a result, it is the thinnest device Apple created. Conversely, the 11-inch variant is 5.3mm thick.

MacRumors says some features from previous iPad Pro models are missing. For example, it replaces the M2 model’s Ultra Wide camera with a single-lens 12-megapixel camera and LiDAR sensor.

The official Apple product page says the iPad Pro cellular models will only accommodate eSIMs. However, eSIM support will also depend on telecommunications service providers. 

You may order an 11-inch iPad Pro starting at ₱72,990 and the 13-inch model at ₱94,990. Deliveries will start on May 15, 2024.

What are the iPad Pro 2024’s accessories?

The all-new iPad Pro has two accessories: the Magic Keyboard and the Apple Pencil Pro. The former costs ₱19,990.00 and has the following features:

  • 14-key function row for screen brightness, volume controls, and other features
