With the M1 chip, the new iPod Pro further blurs the line between tablet and computer.
This will be the highlight of the show at this year’s first Apple event. We were expecting it, the iPod Pro responded on April 20th. Inside, the iPod Pro embeds a much more powerful processor to a tablet, if nothing pretty has changed compared to the 2020 version. This is the processor found in the Apple M1, the latest MacBook Air, the MacBook Pro, the Mac Mini and the newly introduced iMac. As a result, Apple is blurring more lines between the tablet and the computer.
Thanks to the M1, the iPod Pro has tremendous performance, which is 75 times better than the older generation, which was already higher than the others. However, this is not yet the Mac, the iPad has its mobile roots, especially with 5G compatibility.
The other big innovation of this generation iPod Pro is about the big 12.9 inch model. This is called a new screen வ Liquid Retina XDR, Apple’s most expensive professional monitor, Pro Display XDR. The panel uses nearly 10,000 mini LEDs to deliver unprecedented brightness and contrast. Apparently, we are waiting to have the tablet on hand to get a feedback. The 11-inch model retains a display similar to the previous iteration.
Finally, there are new photo sensors, but there is a real Thunderbolt port instead of the USB-C, although it retains the port. As a result, the iPod Pro 2021 will be able to cash in on higher speeds, thus acting as a professional tool with more tools. Finally, the magic keyboard of this generation iPod Pro has a new very successful white color, but it can be very confusing.
The iPod Pro will be available for pre-order from April 30, with first deliveries taking place in the second half of May. The 11-inch version is available at 128GB for 8 899 and the 12.9-inch model for 1, 1,219. Each model starts with 128GB of storage without a cellular connection and comes with a variety of options, and the bill can go up to 4 2,429 for a 12.9-inch iPod Pro!
