Apple announced two new iPad Pro devices, 11 and 13 inches, which feature a thinner and lighter design than its predecessor, in addition to an OLED screen with a very impressive contrast ratio, and an Apple M4 processor not only to enhance performance and efficiency, but also because of its capabilities in the field of artificial intelligence. . With this design and these powerful technologies, we can say that the iPad Pro is the best and most powerful tablet ever, and perhaps no other tablet will compete with it for some time. Here are all the details of the iPad Pro 2024 in detail after a practical review by specialists.

iPad Pro 2024 specifications

This is a table comparing the specifications of the 11-inch iPad Pro and the 13-inch iPad Pro in brief:

Price and availability

The new iPad Pro devices will launch on May 15, with pre-orders available from the first day they are announced.

The 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $999 and features an 11-inch Ultra Retina That's $256 more than the starting price of $4 for the iPad Pro with an M9 processor.

As for the 13-inch iPad Pro, it starts at $1299, $200 higher than the previous version, and comes with the same specifications as the 11-inch iPad Pro.

And if you want a model with nano-textured glass (which has a matte texture that helps reduce fingerprints and reflections), you'll need to upgrade to 2TB at a price of up to $2099 for the 11-inch iPad Pro. You can then choose to add cellular and Wi-Fi for an additional $200.

Note that the 256 and 512GB models have an M4 processor with a 9-core CPU and a 10-core GPU. But the 1 and 2TB storage capacities come with an M4 processor with a 10-core CPU and 10 GPU cores.

Apple emphasizes that the iPad Pro is not a redesign but “completely new.” Although at first glance it looks like a regular iPad Pro, holding it in your hands reveals that it is actually completely new and its design is very wonderful.

the screen

The Ultra Retina XDR display is the iPad Pro's biggest selling point for some people. It's bright and colourful, and the contrast between dark and light elements is stunning, delivering incredibly beautiful photos and videos, and it's considered the best OLED display ever on a tablet. Even from its name, Extreme Dynamic Range, or XDR for short, this means that it is an extreme dynamic range screen.

Tandem OLED technology

For the first time, Apple relies on Tandem OLED screen technology. This technology combines two layers of organic optical diodes (OLED) on top of each other, enabling brightness, contrast and color to be increased to unprecedented levels.


Thanks to dual layers of OLED, the iPad Pro screen can reach record brightness levels. Standard brightness reaches 1000 nits, while brightness is doubled to a maximum of 1600 nits when viewing HDR XDR content, providing an excellent viewing experience even under direct sunlight.

Unlimited contrast and vivid colors

OLED displays have the ability to turn off pixels to reveal pitch-black, resulting in infinite contrast of up to 2,000,000:1 according to Apple specifications. This tremendous contrast allows fine detail to be displayed in both bright and dark areas, with amazingly rich and vivid colours.

Ultra-fast response

The Ultra Retina XDR display controls the color and brightness of each individual pixel with millisecond precision, delivering state-of-the-art performance. This high-speed response makes the screen more sensitive to movement, to deliver a smooth and integrated experience.

M4 processor power

It was expected that the iPad Pro 2024 would come with an M3 processor, but Apple provided it with a new next-generation M4 processor with 3nm technology, and for this reason Apple was able to make it thin without sacrificing performance.

The M4 chip launched by Apple is a single integrated chip (system-on-a-chip) that includes many processing units in one entity. It consists of a powerful 10-core CPU, along with an equally advanced 10-core GPU. It also contains a Neural Engine, which other technology companies call a Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which is dedicated to artificial intelligence and machine learning tasks.

Apple claims that the GPU architecture in the M4 processor builds on the architecture that was first introduced in the previous generation M3. As a result, the M4 adds new features to the iPad, such as handling mesh shading, a complex graphics technology for games and applications.

In a simpler way:

“Mesh Shading” is an advanced technique in the field of graphics processing, where a 4D scene is divided into a grid of cells or pixels, and each cell is shaded individually instead of shading each pixel separately. This process is usually performed on the GPU, but the MXNUMX processor does this itself through its specialized modules, making the process faster and more efficient.

It also offers advanced Ray Tracing technology for graphics, which is an advanced technology for producing highly realistic and accurate graphics and animation. Mimics how real light rays are reflected and refracted in the real world, giving more realistic shadow and reflection effects. This technology is mainly used in games, movies, and high-end animation applications.

In addition to Dynamic Caching technology, which is a technology to manage the chip’s cache more efficiently. Cache space is allocated dynamically according to the application's running needs, resulting in optimal resource usage and better performance.

The new M4 chip from Apple is superior to its competitors, as it includes a neural processing unit, Neural Engine, with a power of 38 TOPS, short for Trillion Operations Per Second, or 38 trillion operations per second, which is a high number when compared to the new Intel Core Ultra processors, whose neural units reach 10. To only 11 trillion calculations per second, or the Snapdragon

This means that upcoming Apple devices equipped with the M4 chip will have superior neural processing power that will enable them to process complex artificial intelligence and machine learning applications more efficiently and quickly than their competitors.


What we mentioned was the opinion of one of the specialists who tested the iPad Pro 2024 immediately after Apple announced it, and after reviewing its technical details closely. But the numbers may be incredibly impressive, and the practical experience of the device will appear when a real test is conducted and used between the anvil and the hammer of artificial intelligence, especially on the device, as Apple claims, and the results are the ones whose results we will rely on, and the final nature of these devices will clearly appear to us.

The truth is that we have tried Apple a lot since it launched the M1 processors and their successors, even the M4 processors. As Apple stated, they exceeded all expectations and widened the gap between them and their competitors.

Now tell us your opinion about the technologies obtained by the new iPads? Do you prefer to use these devices for gaming or editing? Tell us in the comments.
