Apple finally unveiled its newest premium tablet the iPad Pro 2020. For those who are planning on getting the latest tablet on the market, here’s everything you need to know about Apple’s latest gadgets.

iPad Pro 2020 Release Date and Price

Apple unveiled its new iPad Pro models on March 18 and buyers may already order them via the company’s online store, which is a practical move given the current coronavirus scare and the fact that Apple closed its physical stores due to the pandemic.

However, the actual iPad Pro 2020 release date is March 24. According to the company, its online stores will begin shipping deliveries of the gadgets for those who ordered online the following day, March 25.

Price varies depending on the iPad Pro 2020 model and the storage option. The 11-inch iPad Pro with 128GB of storage is available for $799 for the Wi-Fi-only model and $949 for the model with cellular support.

Meanwhile, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi model is priced at $999. The price is a bit higher at $1,149 for the model with cellular connectivity.

New iPad Pro 2020 design and display

Just as its predecessor, there are two iPad Pro 2020 models to choose from in terms of screen size. Buyers can either choose the model with a 12.9-inch display or the slightly smaller 11-inch model.

Regardless of screen size, the gadget’s display comes with a 120Hz refresh rate. This means that every app, whether games or social media, will feel smoother compared to the standard tablet with only a refresh rate of only 90Hz.

The 11-inch model has a resolution of 2388 x 1668 while the 12.9-inch version has 2732 x 2048 pixels, which means that both models offer 264 pixels per square inch. Both models are offered in space gray or silver.

There is a USB-C port located at the bottom edge of the gadget. Unfortunately, there is no headphone jack as Apple has long insisted to do away with the feature.

iPad Pro specs

The gadgets will be powered by the new A12Z Bionic Chip which, according to Apple, is designed for resource-heavy tasks like “editing 4K video or designing 3D models.” The company also claims that the iPad Pro is more powerful than most Windows laptops on the market.

The standard model comes with 128GB storage. But for those who might want more, there are 256GB, 512GB and 1TB storage options available as well. Just like the previous model, there is no support for a microSD card for the iPad Pro 2020.

In terms of connectivity, buyers can choose a Wi-Fi only model or the one that supports 4G. Unfortunately, the iPad Pro doesn’t support 5G connectivity at the moment.

The iPad Pro features two rear cameras, a first for the line. One is a12MP f1.8 wide camera. The other is a 10MP f/2.4 aperture. The gadget also has depth sending capabilities via a LiDAR scanner, which is probably intended to work with augmented reality apps.
