Quick Summary

Apple has officially confirmed the much-rumoured new iPad Pro models with OLED displays.

They also come with the company's latest silicon, the M4 chip  – being the first devices to do so.

Apple has just unveiled its all new iPad Pro line-up. That took place as part of a dedicated event where new iPad Air models, as well as accessories like the Apple Pencil Pro and the new Magic Keyboard, were also revealed.

The most impressive spec right off the bat is the new M4 chip. That goes further than the MacBook range, even, with this marking the first appearance of that chip on a consumer device.

There are a lot of specs to trawl through for that one, but we'll keep to the highlights here. That M4 chip was necessary to facilitate the thinness and the display technology on board – more on that below. The device packs in four performance, six efficiency and 16 neural engine cores, as well as a dedicated display engine to ensure precision colours and brightness.

Oh, and lets not gloss over that Neural Engine in the AI year. Sure, Apple has been packing this into devices for a long time, but you can tell they came out swinging here. That 16-core Neural Engine is capable of a staggering 38 trillion operations per second. That is 50x faster than the first Neural Engine they used, 10x faster than the original iPad Pro.

So, to the new display, called the Ultra Retina XDR. That's an OLED panel, with a revolutionary dual-OLED display technology helping to ensure proper colours and brightness. They call that Tandem OLED, and it is capable of up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness.

Beyond that, it's the thinnest Apple product ever. There are two models – an 11-inch and a 13-inch model – with the two sitting just 5.3mm and 5.1mm thick. That's obscenely thin and should make for a really impressive experience in the hand.

The 11-inch model matches a slim figure with a lightweight design, too. It sits less than one pound in weight, making it effortless as a part of your everyday carry.

The two units come in two colours – Silver and Space Black. The 11-inch model starts at £599 / $999 / AUD$1,699, while the new 13-inch variant will start from £799 / $1,299 / AUD$2,199.
