If you’re unaware of the rumors, a new iPad Pro may be just around the corner. Although it doesn’t have a new design, Apple could make some big changes, such as a miniLED display with OLED-like colors and power efficiency, better cameras and 5G compatibility.
But the real reason for the update would be the processor.
Obviously, it’s no surprise that the iPad Pro can get a faster processor. Although it has been less than 12 months since its update, the iPad Pro is now the second Tablet faster than Apple, behind the iPad Air, which puts the Tablet Apple’s flagship product in a strange position for being slower and more expensive.
A new processor would give the iPad Pro the position it deserves at the top.
However, while we expect the iPad Pro to include the A14X or the X as before, a new report suggests that the Tablet Apple’s top-of-the-line could further improve its speed. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, the processor that would include the next iPad Pro will have a performance “similar to the M1 chip of the last Macs”, and therefore incredibly fast.
Although the speed of the office in a Tablet the light looks amazing, it’s also a bit too much. Any iPad Pro user will tell you that the current chip is pretty fast, and even multi-year-old iPads can run the latest apps and the operating system without a hitch.
So why does Apple find it necessary to upgrade the processor beyond what an A14X would be capable of? Here we have five reasons.
1. Finally, we will have professional Apple applications
While the iPad Pro can do a lot of things, there is a huge gap when it comes to business apps, especially those created by Apple. Note that Xcode is not available for iPadOS, which means developers need a Mac to build iPad apps.
It turns out that Xcode uses a lot of resources and more CPU power than what an iPad can offer. But with a processor on par with the M1, Apple could bring the development platform to the iPad, a move that would suddenly increase the capabilities of the iPad. Tablet.
And I hope that a version for Tablet It wouldn’t take long for Final Cut Pro X to arrive. Now that Microsoft Surface can install and run virtually any Windows app, it’s time for the iPad to keep pace with the Mac.
2. A better multitasking system is on the way
To put it bluntly, the iPad’s multitasking system isn’t good. The navigation is confusing and unstable, the gestures and keys are not intuitive, and the whole system does not make it easy to work with more than one application at a time.
A new chip wouldn’t solve all of these problems if the whole concept isn’t redesigned, but it would allow Apple to think about it. multitasking in a more powerful way. With more power and resources at its disposal, the iPad Pro could be more like the Mac in terms of browsing and multitasking to take advantage of its larger screen and touchscreen interface.
And now that he takes over the trackpad, Apple has many more opportunities for the multitaskingSo we would like the iPadOS 15 to make some major changes to the Pro.
3. The battery life will last, finally, more than 10 hours
It’s hard to believe, but since the arrival of the original iPad, tablets Apple offered “up to 10 hours of Internet surfing via Wi-Fi or video playback.” But an M1-type chip would achieve 15 or even 20 hours, which would put it on par with the latest MacBooks and the iPhone 12 Pro.
A Pro that lasts longer would move it away from the iPad Air and give the Tablet Apple’s flagship is a feature that other models don’t have.
4. Mac apps are coming to iPad
With the launch of Big Sur and the M1 chip, Apple gave Catalyst a streamlined interface and native resolution on Mac so that iPad apps used on a desktop don’t look like they were designed for a mobile device.
With a chip to match the M1, Catalyst could finally work both ways. The iPad’s display is ideally suited for Mac apps, and with a desktop-grade processor, app developers wouldn’t have to worry about performance and memory issues.
So instead of thinking back and bringing mobile apps to a much more powerful machine, Mac developers could reach out to a new audience and open up to new ways of using and interacting with their apps.
New structures and APIs will be needed to achieve this, but with WWDC looming, Apple might have a trump card up its sleeve in the form of new tools.
5. You work in a hybrid team
Apple is always one step ahead of what we can buy, so a more powerful chip in the iPad Pro could be the forerunner of what’s to come. It makes perfect sense that a hybrid team would eventually arrive, combining the best of both worlds: speed, versatility, portability.
An M1-style processor in the iPad would deliver the most important and give Apple a platform to create a machine that doesn’t need to be shaped or sacrificed. In a few years, we might be looking at the 2021 iPad Pro in a different way.
