Although iPad Pro has offered more features for professional users since its launch, more recent generations of the machine have taken this to the next level. In 2020, for example, the iPad Pro was given an upgrade that added a LiDAR sensor to offer improved augmented reality capabilities, and in 2021, Apple added a bunch of cutting-edge features including the M1 chip, the same chip used in the MacBook Air and iMac, and 5G connectivity for the first time, allowing users to take advantage of significantly faster speeds when they’re out and about using their devices. The 2021 variant also included an XDR display, with mini-LEDs that was marketed as a ‘Liquid Retina XDR’ display, ideal for photographers, graphic designers, and visual artists.
