Apple iPad Pro - 11- and 12,9-inch models now with the M1 chip

Apple presented the new iPad Pro yesterday at the April 2021 event. You get this in the well-known sizes 11 inches and 12,9 inches. The latter is now offered by the "Liquid Retina XDR Display" with mini LED lighting. Both also use the Mac SoC M12 instead of the previous A1Z chip. The M1 chip is used in current Mac models and now also in the professional model of the Apple tablet. This means that the iPad Pro can be used much faster, more efficiently and more extensively. Because the USB-C connection has been turned into a full-fledged Thunderbolt port. You can find more technical data, pictures and the price here.

Here you will find technical data of the 11 "iPad Pro and the 12,9" iPad Pro from 2021. In addition to the similarities and differences, I have also listed the prices for you.
