We already know all about the chip, but it is appropriate to summarize the main characteristics and innovations:

  • Octa-core processor, 15% faster than M1
  • Deca GPU, 35% faster than M1
  • 16-core Neural Engine, which combines CPU and GPU can process up to 15800 billion operations per second, +40% compared to M1 in machine learning operations
  • 100Gbps memory bandwidth, +50% compared to M1
  • Unified memory up to 16GB

Thanks to the new chip, the iPad Pro 2022 offers several “accidental” performance upgrades, so to speak, namely:

  • The ability to ProRes . video shooting
  • Triple times the speed of ProRes video transcoding
  • 6E Wi-Fi connectionwith download speeds doubling compared to the previous generation rising to a maximum of 2.4 Gbps
  • 5G connectivity capable of covering multiple networks around the world (of course only Wi-Fi + Cellular models)

With the new generation iPad Pro, Apple also introduced a significant update to the “Hover” experience when using the Apple Pencil: the stylus is detected 12mm from the screen, ensuring greater accuracy and greater ease of use. Finally, there are all the innovations introduced by iPadOS 16. Among them it is worth noting:

  • theater manager, which automatically manages open windows and applications, improving your multitasking experience. By the end of the year, Stage Manager will also support external monitors with resolutions up to 6K, allowing up to 8 apps to be kept on screen in total – 4 on iPad and 4 on external monitors.
  • Pre-installed desktop apps: Consistent undo and redo commands, redesigned find and replace commands, new document menu, customizable toolbar, ability to change file extensions and much more.
  • Reference mode: Enables 12.9-inch iPad Pro with Liquid Retina XDR display to “meet the requirements for color review and approval, color grading and composition, where color accuracy and image fidelity are critical.”
