Liquid Retina display
The edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display is not only gorgeous and immersive but also features incredibly advanced technologies. Like ProMotion, True Tone and industry‑leading colour accuracy, which make everything feel responsive and look stunning. Quite simply, this combination of features makes it a more advanced mobile display.
Advanced cameras combined with a large display, fast performance and highly calibrated sensors have always made the Apple iPad uniquely capable. The Wide and Ultra Wide cameras help you frame the perfect photo or video. And together with studio‑quality mics and four-speaker audio, you can even set up a multi‑camera filmmaking rig.
LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is used to determine distance by measuring how long it takes light to reach an object and reflect back. It’s so advanced, it’s being used by NASA for the next Mars landing mission. And it’s now been engineered to fit in the thin and light Apple iPad Pro.
The custom-designed LiDAR scanner uses the direct time of flight to measure reflected light from up to five metres away, both indoors and out. It works at the photon level, operates at nanosecond speeds, and opens up tremendous possibilities for augmented reality and beyond.
The LiDAR scanner works with the pro cameras, motion sensors and frameworks in iPadOS to measure depth. This combination of hardware, software and unprecedented innovation makes the Apple iPad Pro a unique device for augmented reality.
On the Apple iPad Pro, AR apps become even more realistic. Placing an AR object now happens instantly. Realistic object occlusion allows AR objects to pass in front of and behind real-world structures. Improved motion capture and people occlusion are more accurate than ever. And developers will be able to create even more immersive experiences.
Shoot and edit
The pro camera system makes the Apple iPad Pro incredibly versatile. Shoot, edit and share a 4K video, all on the same device. Capture an entire room in one shot with the Ultra-Wide camera and use Markup to redesign it on the spot.
The front-facing TrueDepth camera enables Face ID, the more secure facial authentication in a tablet and in a computer. It also means you can chat with friends using FaceTime, take Portrait selfies, or liven up your Messages conversations by turning yourself into an Animoji.
A12Z Bionic is designed to be put to work, especially with pro apps. The 8‑core graphics processor delivers fluid performance for things like 4K video editing, 3D design and augmented reality. Enhanced thermal design means higher peak and longer sustained performance critical for pro workflows. And the Apple‑designed Neural Engine enables on‑device machine learning ready for the next generation of pro apps.
iPadOS is designed to harness the power and performance of the Apple iPad Pro. Lightning‑fast hardware and powerful software were designed in concert to make every interaction snappy and smooth. Which makes working with multiple apps at once and moving between spaces quick and effortless.
The Apple iPad Pro is the ultimate mobile workstation. You can print, project and send files wirelessly. The USB‑C port lets you connect all types of accessories, like a camera, external drive or display. Wi‑Fi and LTE are faster than ever, so you can stay connected everywhere. And when it’s time to stream your favourite show or listen to your party playlist, the Apple iPad Pro has an amazing four-speaker audio system built right in.
