Apple has launched the iPad Pro 2021 models in the US. There are two Pro models available to purchase – 11-inch 3rd Gen model and 12.9-inch 5th Gen model. These new iPads are now available to pre-order online from Amazon US.
The 4th Gen iPad Pro models were powered by the Apple A12Z Bionic chipset which performance-wise was inferior to the Apple iPad Air launched last year with the A14 Bionic chip. The 2021 iPad Pro models however zoom past all of these models thanks to the mighty Apple M1 silicon inside. The recently launched Macbook Air and Pro models also feature the same chip.
