Key specs and features

Although it retains a similar exterior as the 3rd gen iPad Pro, the new 2020 models boast a new A12Z Bionic Chip which Apple claims to outpace most PC laptops today. A noticeable change at the rear is the camera bump which looks somewhat similar to the iPhone 11 Pro series.

It features a 12MP main camera and a 10MP ultra-wide-angle shooter. The third “camera” is a LiDAR scanner which is used for light detection and ranging. This will be useful for augmented reality intensive applications.

The screen still uses a Liquid Retina display and it features a smooth ProMotion technology as well as True Tone. For an immersive video viewing experience, there’s also a quad-speaker setup and it is also rated to last up to 10 hours on a single charge. Similar to the 3rd gen model, this iPad Pro charges via USB-C. While the overall dimensions remain unchanged, the 4th gen iPad Pro is actually 10g heavier for the 12.9″ model and 3-5g heavier for the compact 11″ variant.

If you max out on the possible options including the Magic Keyboard and 2nd gen Apple Pencil, the 12.9″ iPad Pro 1TB WiFi+Cellular combo will cost you RM9,397. You can learn more in our iPad Pro 2020 announcement post.
