The New 4th Gen iPad Pro 11 inch 2020
The world’s most advanced
The edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display is not only gorgeous and immersive, but also features incredibly advanced technologies.1 Like ProMotion, True Tone, and industry‑leading color accuracy, which make everything feel responsive and look stunning. Quite simply, this combination of features makes it the world’s most advanced mobile display.
Advanced cameras combined with a large display, fast performance, and highly calibrated sensors have always made iPad uniquely capable. The Wide and new 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 multicamera 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 is 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 iPad Pro.
The custom-designed LiDAR Scanner uses direct time of flight to measure reflected light from up to five meters 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.
On the new 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
The pro camera system makes 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. Or scan a document, sign or mark it up with Apple Pencil, then send back your notes with a tap.
The front-facing TrueDepth camera enables Face ID, the world’s most secure facial authentication in a tablet — and in a computer. It also means you can take Portrait selfies, or liven up your Messages conversations by turning yourself into an Animoji.
With the A12Z Bionic chip, iPad Pro is so fast it outpaces most PC laptops available today. It makes everything you do fast and fluid, from your everyday tasks to graphics-intensive workflows. And the 8-core graphics processor means even more performance and realism for the apps and games where it matters most.

|iPad Pro 2020|
Apple's new iPad Pro (starting at $799) isn't a major improvement over the 2018 model, but there's been a big change in the iPad experience since then: mouse and trackpad support. That vaults the tablet into working a lot more like a computer than it previously did. Of course, the iPad line does a lot of things that a Mac or PC doesn't: Apple's Pencil stylus and its approach to augmented reality applications are leaps and bounds beyond the competition, at least if you aren't into getting a bulky add-on drawing tablet for your computer. And the 2020 iPad Pro is gorgeous, superbly built, and powerful. But I can't shake the idea that if you can afford to spend this much on an Apple device, you're better off with a Mac.
