As hard as it is for some people to wrap their heads around such an idea, Apple is almost certainly working hard on a more powerful tablet family than the duo iPad Pro (2021).
With a desktop-grade M1 processor under the hood (and a bunch of other super-premium features), last year’s 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros may well be the overall winner. best tablets money can buy in 2022… as long as money is no object.
But according to multiple generally reliable leakers, industry experts and insiders, that will change by the end of this year, with the vastly improved Apple M2 chip unveiled earlier this week expected to move from MacBooks to iPads slightly faster than before. his predecessor.
A beastly SoC deserves all the storage and memory in the world
How could Apple ever do justice to? a chip advertised
with an 18 percent faster CPU, 35 percent more powerful GPU, and 40 percent faster Neural Engine on the latest MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro editions than the already stunning M1?
A 14.1-inch screen sounds like…an interesting start to the most advanced of three rumored iPad Pro (2022) variants
and a “basic” combination of 512GB of internal storage and 16GB of RAM might just help this behemoth completely abandon Samsung’s 14.6-inch Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra in the dust.
While not nearly as reliable or prolific as Mark Gurman, Ming-Chi Kuo, Ross Young or Jon Prosser… the Twitter leaker behind this juicy new piece of speculation isn’t entirely unknown or unproven.
Accurately anticipating the screen size and some other key specs of an all-new iPad Pro model four or five months ahead of an official announcement, of course, requires a radically different level of foreknowledge, which is why Bu himself cautions us against taking “this.” news too serious.”
An iPad Pro with up to 4TB storage?!?
This is an even more sketchy theory
(at least for now), but it kind of makes sense that Apple would go up to FOUR terabytes of local digital collecting space if the jumbo-sized 14.1-inch iPad Pro (2022) does indeed get started
at 512 performances.
In case you’re wondering, the M1-powered iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) currently comes in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB storage configurations, with the first three limited to 8GB of RAM, while the other two each offer 16 gigs of the good stuff. .
In comparison, the very first 14.1-inch iPad Pro could run on a whole different level in options of 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB, the latter of which we wouldn’t even want to imagine how much it could cost.
These are the latest 12.9 (left) and 11-inch (right) iPad Pros available today.
The unified memory is unlikely to exceed 32GB due to the processing power limitation, but it goes without saying that the biggest and most impressive iPad Pro ever won’t need more to (easily) become the best tablet available by the end of 2022. .
The other two members of the next-gen iPad Pro family, meanwhile, sound a lot less stunning, with “no major changes” whatsoever tipped for the “compact” 11-inch model and the 12.9-inch version expected to arrive. will sport ” tapered edges.”
Of course, if Apple can keep the starting prices of these two M2 powerhouses unchanged from their M1 predecessors, the sky is the limit in global demand after an October or November launch alongside new AirPorts. By the way, that’s not a typo, referring to a possible revival of a In 2016 discontinued line of wireless routers and wireless cards in place of the AirPods Pro 2 will likely go official in September along with the iPhone 14 grid and Apple Watch Series 8.
