It would appear that we will not be receiving an unexpected Apple event in October after all. The business has just released what is without a doubt going to be one of the very final significant hardware updates for the calendar year. A change from the M1 to the M2 chip is at the centre of the next update to the iPad Pro’s technical specifications.
Apple claims that the new chip’s performance has increased by around 15% thanks to its eight more CPU cores. The graphics processing unit (GPU) has 10 cores and, according to the manufacturer offers a performance increase of 35%.
Apple is marketing the most recent version of the iPad Pro as something more akin to a laptop that is aimed at creative professionals. The company is pushing advancements to the kind of content production that were possible to be managed by tablets as recently as a few years ago. It states that:
The performance of M2 can turbocharge even the most demanding workflows, including those of photographers editing massive photo libraries and designers manipulating complex 3D objects as well as gamers enjoying graphics-intensive games and healthcare professionals performing advanced imaging and analysis.
Users can shoot ProRes video for the very first time and transcode ProRes film up to three times faster thanks to the improved cameras and the capability of M2, which also includes a new media engine and an image signal processor. This enables the creators of content to collect, edit, and broadcast videos of cinematic quality all from a single device while they are out in the field.
The premium tablet is offered in 11- and 12.9-inch screen sizes, and it can be purchased with storage capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB, or 2 TB, along with 16 GB of random access memory (RAM). Wi-Fi and 5G connectivity options will be made accessible for both editions. This revision improves connectivity by adding support for the WiFi 6E standard.
Apple says that the Pro includes 100% recycled gold for the circuit board, along with recycled aluminium, tin, and numerous rare earth metals. This is part of the company’s push towards a more environmentally friendly business model. The new Apple Pencil, which is the second generation of the Apple Pencil, can be detected up to 12 millimetres further away from the display than its predecessor. This allows users to see a preview of their sketches before committing the stylus to the tablet.
Both come with the release of iPadOS 16, which includes several desktop-focused enhancements, such as a revamped Stage Manager (which garnered some user pushback in betas) and app layouts that are more optimised for the screen. Both of these capabilities are now available.

In the grand scheme of things, the new version is more of a specification boost than anything else, with the M2 serving as the focal point of the entire update.

Beginning today, you may place a preorder for it. The Apple Pencil, on the other hand, will set you back 129 dollars. Other accessories include the Smart Keyboard Folio, which can be purchased for $179 or $199, and the Magic Keyboard, which can be purchased for either $299 or $349.
Additionally new is an updated version of the standard iPad, which now has a design that is more comparable to that of the Pro model. This means that the physical home button will no longer be present, and the fingerprint reader will instead be located on the power button. The price of the new version begins at $449.
In addition, the Apple TV 4K receives an upgrade that centres on a more powerful chip and has a starting price of $129.
