The iPad Pro features an Ultra Retina XDR OLED display which provides a rich visual experience. The new iPad is significantly smaller and lighter than the previous generation. The 1-inch model is 5.3mm thin, while the 13-inch model is 5.1mm thin. Apple says the 13-inch iPad Pro is the thinnest product it has ever made.

Apple says the light and thin design of the iPad Pro is made possible by the M4 chip. The chip is built on a 3nm technology with a new display engine. The display engine ensures the iPad Pro produces vivid colours and up to 1600 peak HDR brightness. The M4 chip has four performance cores and six efficiency cores, with next-generation machine learning (ML) accelerators, to deliver up to 1.5x faster CPU performance over M2 in the previous-generation iPad Pro. It has a 10-core GPU with features like Dynamic Caching, and hardware-accelerated mesh shading and ray tracing, the first of its kind in any iPad. Thanks to its higher unified memory bandwidth, pro rendering apps like Octane will see up to 4x faster performance than M2, Apple says.

The new iPad Pro has an upgraded camera system. The 12MP rear camera is capable of capturing images and videos in Smart HDR with improved colour and lighting. It features True Tone flash that improves document scanning, and its AI features help with shadows and lighting. The 12MP front-facing camera has been moved to a landscape location with Centre Stage which has greatly improved the experience of FaceTime calls.
