Learn about the specifications of iPad Pro 2020 in some detail, you can review the first part -this link- To know more about other specifications that you may not know. In this part we will learn about the new Apple A12Z processor? And since the iPad is a dual lens, does it support portrait photography? What about battery capacity? All this and more you know in this section, so read on.

Portrait mode

Apple omitted any mention of Portrait Mode or Portrait Lighting in its iPad Pro 2020 product pages. It is certain that iPad Pro 2020 does not have the required telephoto lens to support this mode. It's unclear why there's no indication of Portrait Mode, although a LiDAR sensor is included. Perhaps this is due to Apple's focus on the main marketing point of the LiDAR sensor in favor of augmented reality, but it hasn't said anything about its use in photography.

Despite the presence of Portrait Mode on the iPhone XR with a single lens, which was released a month before the iPad Pro 2018, the latter did not contain it despite it containing a dual lens. Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting seem to be among the features that Apple wants to limit to the iPhone, while the multi-camera system and LiDAR sensor in the iPad Pro 2020 target augmented reality for other applications dedicated to this.

Video recording

It seems that the new iPad Pro will have support for 24K 4fps video recording and 120fps slow motion video, which may open up new cinematic possibilities. But the odd thing we noticed is that you'll only be able to use video recording at a higher frame rate on the ultra-wide lens.

According to the specifications, when using the ultra-wide lens, you will only be able to shoot 4K at 60 fps, and slow motion video at 240 fps. The standard wide lens can now shoot 4K at 24fps, 30fps, or 60fps, and slow mode at 120fps or 240fps. As for 1080p, it remains limited to 30/60 frames per second and 720p is limited to 30 frames per second, just as it was before.

The front TrueDepth camera will still be able to record 1080p video at 30fps or 60fps, and it will be possible to capture 8MP still photos while recording 4K video from the rear cameras.

A12Z processor

Apple used the new A12Z Bionic processor, unlike expected, but it is known that new processors always surpass its predecessors and competitors, such as the iPad 2 transition from an A4 processor to an A5 chip with nine times the graphics performance, until the iPad Pro 2018 came with a processor. A12X that rivals mid-range laptops. This made the iPads far superior to competing tablets.

We do not yet know why this processor, and what is its capacity? Until someone review it when it is released. We do not know if it is closer in performance than its predecessor A12X found on the iPad Pro 2018 or the A13 in iPhone models last year. Based on expert analyzes, it is a processor based on the 64-bit ARM architecture, although this is not officially mentioned, it is likely manufactured by the Taiwanese semiconductor industry (TSMC). It comes with a 7-nanometer manufacturing technology, the number of cores 8, ten billion transistors, a cache memory, the first level of 2 megabytes, and the second level of 8 megabytes, and as for the gigahertz frequency, it has not been disclosed yet. The processor comes with an 8-core GPU versus 7 in the A12X processor. Thus, it is the highest performer than others.

Control units have been modified, and thermal engineering has been improved for the better. According to Apple, the new processor is built to handle challenging tasks, such as 4K video editing or 12D modeling and augmented reality capabilities. It described it as faster than most laptops, but it was characterized by improved performance compared to the previous generation of Apple AXNUMXX.

It comes with the processor, 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and it contains the Apple U1 chip found in the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.

For one thing, the A13 features a 'third-generation Neural Engine', which has almost certainly not been ported to the A12Z, so it looks like the new iPad Pro will not be as powerful in machine learning and things like computational imaging as it is in IPhone 11 and 11 Pro, and it's also unlikely that it has a Metal GPU like the A13 too.

the sound

The new iPad Pro 2020 contains the same five microphones as the previous model, but in studio quality, for accurate recording without the need for additional equipment. The improved audio recording is a huge leap for podcast users and sound engineers, thus bringing iPad Pro 2020 to a whole new audience. This can be useful for augmented reality applications that require accurate recognition and spatial positioning of surrounding sounds. And it seems that it will support the same audio output of any four speakers as the previous iPad Pro.

the battery

IPad Pro 2020 comes in two different sizes, the largest is 12.9 inches with a 36.71 watt-hour battery, and the smallest 11-inch loses little battery capacity from a technical standpoint, as it has a 28.65 watt-hour battery compared to 29.37 watt-hour in the 2018 model , But this difference is too small to be practically noticeable.

Apple says the battery of the new iPad Pro will work up to 10 hours of surfing the web or watching videos over Wi-Fi, or up to 9 hours over a cellular data connection.

Certainly, when the device is released and the various reviews are made, other things will become clear to us, which we will mention at the time.
