Apple iPad Pro Specs

The Thunderbolt port can also handle an external monitor with 6K resolution as well as 10 gigabit Ethernet.
While the 11-inch iPad Pro model still uses the regular Liquid Retina (600 nits of peak brightness) panel, the 12.9-inch variant is equipped with a new mini-LED panel. Apple calls it the Liquid Retina XDR display. The panel features a peak brightness of 1,600 nits and can achieve 1,000 nits full-screen brightness. The display supports HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG imaging formats. The panel uses 10,000 mini-LEDs grouped into 2,500 local dimming zones. The screens on both models feature adaptive 120Hz refresh rates.
The new iPad Pro models have optional 5G connectivity, including mmWave in the US. For the cameras, the iPad Pros has a new TrueDepth camera and a 12 MP ultrawide-angle lens on the front. Apart from the front cameras, you also get a LiDAR scanner on the back as well as the 12 MP primary sensor and 10 MP ultrawide lens. This enables better low light performance, helps with autofocus, and supports Smart HDR 3.
