Apple presented at the end of last year its new commitment to chips with its own ARM architecture for all its computers, in an attempt to unify all its current ecosystems: iPhone, iPad and macOS. In addition, in that presentation event they went so far as to affirm that these new SoCs would be as powerful, or more, than the Intel they have been using for the last 15 years.
As it is, for weeks we have been hearing rumors of the possible arrival of new models on the edge of the iPad Pro. The most expensive and complete tablets of those of Cupertino that already had a last year last year to which they added one more camera sensor and another LiDAR for augmented reality issues, in addition to improving the processor with the A12Z chip. Now, just twelve months later, Apple’s leakers’ lies talk that a fifth generation of these professional tablets is looming.
Two new components in 2021
As you might imagine, few things can change from one year to the next and Apple, which has shortened the shelf life of these Pro tablet models, is going to focus on two very specific components: on the one hand the processor, which will be an A14 Bionic chip like the one carried by all the iPhone 12 of 2020, and on the other the screen, which will bring (finally!) all the advantages of mini LED technology.
