iPad Pro 2021 is the new iPad pro which will be released soon by Apple. iPad fans are eagerly waiting for its release and want to know how much does iPad Pro 2021 cost. Though yet Apple hasn’t released the price of new iPad Pro 2021 (at the time of writing). Yet expectations and leaks of price of iPad Pro is rolling out at many online sites. All these evaluation in price comes from earlier versions of iPad Pro.
Apple decided to charge iPad Pro fans a premium for the upgraded design in the 2018 models, charging £969/$999/AU$1,529 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 64GB base and £1,869/$1,899/AU$2,869 for the 1TB kitted out configurations.
It also retired the 10.5-inch iPad Pro (2nd generation) and released the 11-inch iPad Pro (3rd generation) instead, which set consumers back £769/$799/AU$1,229 for the 64GB configuration and £1,519/$1,549/AU$2,349 for the top of the heap 1TB configuration.
For 2020, Apple changed course yet again. It kept largely the same price of entry (except in Australia) at £769/$799/AU$1,329 (11-inch) and £969/$999/AU$1,649 (12.9-inch) while doubling the base memory, charged a bit more for the 26GB and 512GB configurations, and dropped the price on the 1TB model down to £1,269/$1,299/AU$2,179 (11-inch) and £1,469/$1,499/AU$2,499 (12.9-inch).
You can thus expect Apple to keep close to the same prices on the iPad Pro 2021 models, regardless of updates.
About iPad Pro
The iPad Pro is a line of iPad tablet computer designed, developed, and marketed by Apple. The first iPad Pro was launched in November 2015. They run the iOS and iPadOS mobile operating systems. The current generation is available in two screen sizes, 11-inch (28 cm) and 12.9-inch (33 cm), each with four options for internal NVMe storage capacities: 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB.
The fourth generation of iPad Pro was announced on March 18, 2020, with the same screen sizes of the previous generation. It offers a redesigned camera module, an A12Z processor, 128 GB minimum storage, LiDAR Scanner (<5m distance), and support for the Magic Keyboard with a trackpad that is sold separately.
In iPad Pro 2021 you can expect some design updates the iPad Pro 2020 brought were the new 10MP Ultra Wide camera and the LiDAR depth scanner. According to leaks, you can expect the same dimensions as the current model – though some rumours have said there’d be a thinner camera bump, while others say thicker.
It should also have the same quad-speaker system, rear Smart Connector for its accessories, USB-C port, dual rear cameras with LiDAR sensor, and Face ID login feature.
Also some early design leaks point to a reduction in the number of speaker holes, perhaps indicating a shift of components inside the case, even if the outside doesn’t change very much.
One rumour is that could very well happen is that the new iPad Pro 2021 models are getting thinner bezels. Finally, with the iPad Air getting that great Touch ID sensor on its power button, you can hope that the new iPad Pros will follow suit and offer this as backup login feature as well as Face ID.
Features –iPad Pro 2021
With the iPad Air 2020 launching with a brand new chip, the A14 Bionic, Apple’s most powerful tablet is certainly not going to take it lying down. After all, the 2020-launched chip is supposed to boast a 40% faster CPU, 30% faster graphics, and a Neural Engine that’s allegedly twice as fast. There’s absolutely no way that Apple is releasing the iPad Pro 2021 without this chip inside or a slightly more powerful variant of it. The iPad Pro could also be the first iPad to feature 5G connectivity as a cellular option and it would make total sense for the ‘pro’ model to debut the new, faster tech.
On the other hand, with the amount of fanfare and praise for the M1 chip, which now powers the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1), and Mac Mini, it’s entirely possible that Apple will insert a variant of it in the iPad Pro. You can suspect Apple will keep the M chips just for Macs, though.
Finally, there’s a rumour going around that Apple might also unveil the next-generation Magic Keyboard alongside the iPad Pro 2021. According to TechRadar report the new iPad Pros could come with a redesigned Magic Keyboard, which originally launched last year. This redesign might feature a more solid build, a microphone, and vibration sensors. That’s, of course, on top of the trackpad that’s already in the current model.
