Apple’s M2 processor has found a new home: the new 2022 iPads Pro that were just introduced today.
Along with the launch of the new 10th generation iPad, its older brother has also been presented, which is the iPad Pro 2022, which arrives with Apple’s M2 processor inside. As with the previous generation, Apple has decided to divide this new generation of iPad into two models.
The main difference between these two devices will be found on the screen, both because of the diagonal and because of the technology that Apple uses for the panel of each of these two devices. And, it is that, there is 2022 iPad Pro 11-inch with Liquid Retina display and 2022 iPad Pro 12.9-inch with Liquid Retina XDR display.
Leaving aside these differences, which, in truth, are quite significant when we find equipment considered professional and that start at prices designed for enthusiasts; would have been expected that Apple had decided to integrate Liquid Retina XDR technology in both devices.
The positive thing is that inside we would find two practically identical devices and, is that, the processor that puts the power is the M2 that we have already seen in computers such as the MacBook Air presented this year and that we have analyzed. Performance is served as it already was with the integration of the M1.
The new Apple iPad Pro 2022 arrives with the M2 inside and professional features
Apple has made the leap in its new iPad Pro 2022, the revolution may not be the same as when those from Cupertino decided to integrate the M1 into their equipment. But the truth is that the arrival of the M2 on tablets is good news for the most enthusiastic users who need that extra bit of performance.
Leaving aside the well-known power of the M2, we are going to see the technical characteristics of these new iPads Pro. The first thing to keep in mind is that the 12.9-inch model is the winner in terms of screen technology and featureswhile the 11-inch model falls behind.
And, it is that, the panel of the new 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro 2022 is MiniLED and is made up of 10,000 LEDs that act independently to form 2,500 independent dimming zones. Come on, brightness management at certain times is similar to what we would find in an OLED or AMOLED panel.
This MiniLED screen has a brightness level of 1,000 nits that, at certain times, can go up to 1,600 when necessary, such as in the reproduction of HDR content. The refresh rate is 120 Hz which makes it have ProMotion just like the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
What happens to the screen of the 2022 iPad Pro 11-inch? It does not mount a MiniLED panel, but a typical Apple panel and, therefore, It is capable of offering ProMotion, TrueTone, coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and having a brightness of 600 nits. The difference is the technology is great and it may no longer be justifiable as in previous years.
At the connectivity level, there are several changes that we find in both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models. The first thing to note is that a 5G modem has been integrated along with one to give WiFi 6E capabilities to the iPad Pro 2022, in addition, Bluetooth is present in its version 5.3.
The unlocking of both models, unlike with the iPad Air or the new 10th generation iPad, is done using Face ID that has been integrated near the front camera. This ultra wide angle camera is 12 megapixels that has Center Framing functionality to track the subject during video calls.
The rear integrates a camera module in which the wide angle stands out along with an ultra wide angle, 12 and 10 megapixels respectively. Also, the LiDAR sensor is maintained with which 3D maps can be createdmeasure distances and even help focus in certain complicated situations.
