With its own silicon, Apple has been enjoying its great success so far. Even before the Apple Silicon and its first M1 iteration, Apple’s A chips have been running circles around their Qualcomm rivals, at least in some benchmarks. With the Apple M1 for Macs, Apple took it to the next level but no it’s not stopping there. There are high chances for Apple to launch new iPad Pros really soon and their industry analyst claims that it could rival even the M1 Mac in terms of processor performance.
A and M processors of Apple are really cousins that share a common ARM architecture DNA. But of course, they aren’t identical and Apple necessarily made changes that geared the Apple M1 towards the macOS and desktop use cases. Although it doesn’t claim the fact that it will be leaving the more mobile Apple A chips behind. If the Apple A14Z or A14X, whichever name Apple chooses, is as powerful as the Apple M1, then we can expect the iPad Pro to be blazing fast. That does raise the question of such speed is even necessary considering how powerful the previous Apple A12Z already was. It does open the door to more powerful apps, though, but that will also require developers to take advantage of what the silicon has to offer.
A more powerful processor, a more advanced display of 12.9-inch that is expected to sport a new mini LED display which as a result will offer more precise brightness and contrast, and the addition of a 5G modem will all go towards making this year’s iPad Pro the most advanced tablets in the market. All these rumors are making the next iPad Pros even more interesting than they already are. Given all of these, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the iPad Pros will be more expensive than ever before as well.
