As we all know, Apple is the leader in the cell phone industry in addition to the iPhone, the iPad is also unshakable in the tablet. iPad has a variety of types, different models to meet the needs of different users, iPad pro is also the best performance of the iPad is also one of the most expensive models, 2021 the latest push of iPad pro with Apple's latest self-developed M1 Chip,, so that the iPad performance is significantly improved, 8-core CPU design has the world's fastest low-power silicon CPU cores, than the A12Z bionic to provide up to 50% of the CPU performance. The regular upgrades are screen, camera, memory, and the appearance is also slightly changed. But what has changed from the previous generation, and is it worth buying? I have collected information to try to explain the changes in the iPad over the years.
The latest iPad models are iPad mini (6th generation) priced from 3799, iPad Air (4th generation) priced from 4799, iPad (9th generation) priced from 2499 and the iPad Pro2021 M1 version highlighted in this post.
From the appearance to close, iPad, in addition to the general version, other models have entered the era of full-screen, including ID face and fingerprint unlock to replace the traditional buttons, so that these products have a larger screen-to-body ratio, against the pace of the iPhone.
2021 iPad Pro models into a new slightly subtle update that looks like the 2018 and 2020 iPad Pro models. 11-inch iPad Pro is 9.74 inches long and 7.02 inches wide, while the 12.9-inch model is 11.04 inches long and 8.46 inches wide, which means it's more than an inch wider than the smaller models, putting the latest and 20 models It's really hard to tell who the latest model is when you take it out, but of course everyone uses it to learn (dog head to save their lives). 11-inch iPad Pro is 5.9 mm thick and the 12.9-inch model is 6.4 mm thick. 11-inch iPad Pro weighs 1.03 pounds and 12.9-inch iPad Pro weighs 1.5 pounds with a 6 mm bezel on the top, bottom and sides. iPad Pro models Instead of smooth, tapered edges, it has industrial-flat sides like iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. There is no Touch ID home button, as iPad Pro instead uses a facial recognition-enabled Deep Camera system for Face ID biometric authentication. The Deep Camera is located in the top bezel of the iPad Pro.
With the introduction of the sixth generation iPad mini, Apple has completely changed the iPad mini's status as the smallest in the iPad lineup. Whereas iPad mini used to have thick bezels and a Touch ID home button, it is now also going in to the full-screen era. iPad mini 6 comes with an 8.3-inch display that is also larger than the 7.9-inch iPad mini 5 due to fewer bezels around the screen. There is no home button and the touch ID moves to the top of the device at the power source. Like the iPad Air, the iPad mini 6 dot has a flat, rounded appearance with flat edges to match the iPad Pro and modern iPhones. iPad mini is 7.69 inches (195.4 mm) long, 5.3 inches (134.8 mm) wide and 0.25 inches (6.3 mm) thick, so it is roughly the same width and height as the previous model, but thickness of 0.2 mm. While iPad mini 5 has a headphone jack, iPad mini 6 does not.
In terms of weight, iPad mini is the smallest model of iPad weighing 293 grams or 0.65 pounds. Of course, the other version with data is a little heavier.
The volume buttons move to the top of the device. The volume button sits on top, making room for the magnetic connector on the side used to charge the second-generation Apple Pencil. iPad mini has speakers on the top and bottom that provide stereo sound when iPad mini is used in landscape mode, a microphone on top, and a nano-SIM card tray on the side of the cellular model that will have a nano-SIM card tray. At the back, there's a single-lens rear camera.
The latest iPad Air, which measures 10.9 inches, up from 10.5 inches in the previous iPad Air model, has been redesigned with an edge-to-edge display similar to that of the iPad Pro. The aluminum chassis features a flat, rounded edge-to-edge surround retina display, the same as the pro version. iPad Air is 9.74 inches long and 7 inches wide, while iPad Pro is 9.74 inches long and 7.02 inches wide. iPad Air is 6.1 mm thick and 11-inch iPad Pro is 5.9 mm thick. iPad Air weighs 1 pound and iPad Pro weighs 1.04 pounds, so there's no difference here. iPad Air has a volume up/down button on the right side, the nano-SIM card tray found on cellular models, and a magnetic space for charging the Apple Pencil. At the back, there's a single-lens rear camera with a microphone. The single-lens camera is noticeably different from the square camera bump on the iPad Pro, as it doesn't have a second camera or LIDAR scanner.
This is the first iPad Air with a full display design, no Touch ID home button, and no Face ID, biometric authentication via a new Touch ID fingerprint reader built into the top button. It's like a power button fingerprint like some Android models. The speaker and microphone are located on the top of iPad Air, adjacent to the Touch ID button.
On the screen, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro features a new mini LED display that Apple calls the "Liquid Retina XDR Display" with a resolution of 2732 x 2048 at 264 pixels per inch. The Liquid Retina XDR display brings great dynamic range to iPad Pro, providing a "stunning visual experience" with more realistic detail and HDR. The Apple mini-LED display uses more than 10,000 LED indicators across the back of the display to create a full-screen brightness of up to 1,000 nits, a peak brightness of 1,600 nits, and a contrast ratio of 1 million to 1. This captures even the brightest highlights and subtle details in the darkest images, allowing creatives to view and edit realistic HDR content on large portable displays. Of course there's no shortage of 120hz high brushes, and the 11-inch iPad Pro has a resolution of 2388 x 1668 at 264 pixels per inch. The display delivers up to 600 nits of brightness with a reflection rate of just 1.8 percent. It continues to feature anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint coatings.
iPad mini 6 features an 8.3-inch fully laminated display with a resolution of 2266x1488 at 326 pixels per inch. Like iPad Air, iPad mini 6 supports a wide color gamut for vivid, lifelike colors and comes with original color display support. The Original Color Display adjusts the white balance of the display to match ambient lighting so the screen appears easier on the eye. For example, if you're in a room with a lot of yellow light, iPad mini's display warms to avoid a stark contrast between iPad's colors and the light in the room. There's also an anti-reflective coating. iPad mini 6 has a 1.8 percent reflectivity and 500 nits of brightness. Like all iPads, it has an anti-fingerprint oleophobic coating.
iPad Air comes with a 10.9-inch Liquid retina display, the same as the iPad Pro display but without the 120Hz ProMotion technology, and it has a resolution of 2360 x 1640 at 246 pixels per inch for a total of 3.8 million pixels. It features full lamination (reducing display thickness to make content look more immersive), P3 wide color gamut support for rich, lifelike colors, anti-reflective coating with 1.8% reflectivity, 500 nits brightness and original color support. Original Color Display adjusts the white balance of the display to match ambient lighting, making the screen appear easier on the eyes. For example, if you are in a room with yellowish light, the iPad display has warmer colors, so there is no noticeable contrast between the iPad's colors and the light in the room.
The new iPad Pro is one of the first iPads to feature Apple's M1 chip, the first custom silicon chip designed by Apple for the Mac. Apple says the M1 chip gives the iPad Pro "a significant performance boost. According to Apple, the 8-core CPU design features the world's fastest low-power silicon CPU cores, providing up to 50 percent more CPU performance than the A12Z bionic. Likewise, the 8-core GPU delivers up to 40 percent better GPU performance. This has since been demonstrated in early benchmarks. The M1 chip in iPad Pro also offers many custom technologies, including the next generation 16-core Apple Neural Network Engine and a more advanced Image Signal Processor (ISP). The M1 chip also allows iPad Pro to support 2x faster storage and up to 2TB of storage for the first time, as well as have up to 16GB of memory in a unified, high-bandwidth memory architecture. Previous models only supported up to 1TB of storage and 6GB of RAM.
iPad mini 6 comes with the same 6-core A15 chip as the iPhone 13 model, but it has dropped to 2.9GHz compared to the 3.2GHz speed found in the iPhone 13 series. clocking the chip means that iPad mini is about 2 to 8 percent slower than iPhone 13 in terms of CPU performance. In the Geek Desk test, iPad mini 6 averaged single-core and multi-core scores of 1595 and 4540, respectively. iPhone 13 averaged single-core and multi-core scores of 1730 and 4660, respectively. While the chip is not as fast as the chip in iPhone 13, it is much more powerful than the chip in the previous generation iPad mini. Compared to the A12 in the previous generation iPad mini 5, iPad mini 6 delivers up to 40 percent better single-core performance and 70 percent better multi-core performance. The A15 chip comes in two versions, one with a 4-core GPU and the other with a 5-core GPU. iPad mini comes in a 5-core version, the same faster and more powerful chip used in the iPhone 13 Pro model. Compared to the previous generation iPad mini, iPad mini 6 has 80 percent faster graphics. The 16-core neural network engine in A15 is capable of performing up to 15.8 trillion operations per second, thanks to a new image signal processor that powers features like Movie Mode and Smart HDR 3. That should be more than enough performance for iPad mini.
The latest Air is still the previous generation A14 chip, which, according to Apple, is equipped with 11.8 billion transistors for improved performance and energy efficiency. The A14 chip's 6-core design improves GPU performance by 40 percent compared to the A12Z, and the new 4-core GPU architecture improves graphics power by 30 percent compared to the A12Z. The A14 bionic includes a 16-core neural network engine that is twice as fast and can perform up to 11 trillion operations at unprecedented speeds. there is also a second-generation machine learning gas pedal in the CPU that can speed up machine learning computations by a factor of 10. With the A14 chip equipped with an updated GPU and neural network engine, Apple says the new iPad Air delivers a powerful new device experience for image recognition, natural language learning, motion analysis and more.
iPad Pro includes the same camera system as the previous model with a 12MP wide-angle camera with ƒ/1.8 aperture and a 10MP ultra wide-angle camera with ƒ/2.4 aperture and 125 degree field of view. Original color flash, 5x digital zoom, 63MP panorama, wide color gamut capture, noise reduction, smart HDR, burst mode, live photo support and auto image stabilization are all included features. As with the 2018 and 2020 models, the 2021 iPad Pro models do not feature optical image stabilization. Next to the two main cameras is a LIDAR scanner (light detection and ranging), which uses reflected light to measure the distance from the iPad Pro to surrounding objects up to five meters (16.4 feet) indoors or outdoors. Measurements are taken at the photon level in nanoseconds.
iPad mini 6 includes a ƒ/1.8 12MP wide-angle rear camera with digital zoom up to 5x, a five-element lens and a quad-LED primary color flash. It's an adequate camera, the same one that comes with iPad Air, but it's not as advanced as the cameras used in the iPhone 13 series or iPad Pro. Supports most of Apple's modern camera features like panorama, burst mode, Smart HDR 3, live photos, autofocus with focus pixels, wide color gamut capture, auto image stabilization, and more. Support for 4K video recording at 24, 25, 30 or 60 frames per second and slow-motion video at 120 or 240 frames per second. iPad mini can also record at 1080p at 30 or 60 frames per second and supports continuous autofocus, movie video stabilization and time-lapse video with stabilization.
While there is no Face ID-enabled native camera system in iPad Air, there is a ƒ/2.0 7MP front-facing FaceTime HD camera for selfies and video calls. At the rear of iPad Air, there is a single-lens 12MP wide-angle camera, the same wide-angle camera used in iPad Pro. It supports high-resolution video and 4K video capture compared to the older iPad Air. The 12MP camera has a ƒ/1.8 aperture for solid performance in low light, and all the modern improvements Apple has added to its device cameras, such as those with stabilized live photos, autofocus with Focus Pixels, wide color gamut capture, exposure control, Smart HDR Auto Image Stabilization, Noise Reduction, and more. Support for 4K video recording at 20, 30, or 60 frames per second and slow motion video at 120 or 240 frames per second. iPad Air can also record at 1080p at 30 or 60 frames per second with continuous autofocus, cinematic video stabilization, and the option to capture 8MP stills while recording 4K video.
Due to the word limit, there are many more detailed did not finish the introduction, in general, the value determines the price, the price fluctuates around the value, the price is proportional to the performance, Apple new products are generally high prices, according to the price drop, if you just want to cost-effective, used iPad may be a better choice for everyone.
