In May 2024, Apple introduced the new iPad Pro M4, calling it the biggest update in the history of the iPad Pro. With an ultra-thin body, even for an iPad, an unprecedentedly powerful processor, and a super-bright display with an OLED matrix, these are just a few of its advantages. We discuss the main features and determine if the iPad Pro M4 is worth buying for those who work with visual content or are just looking for a device for entertainment.

Apple iPad Pro M4: The Embodiment of Portability

This product is the thinnest in the entire lineup: it’s thinner than a smartphone. The 2024 iPad Pro M4 is available in two sizes: 13 inches (5.3 mm thick) and 11 inches (5.1 mm thick). The dimensions and weight of the Apple iPad Pro 11″ M4 are 249.7×177.5 mm and 444 g, respectively. The Apple iPad Pro 13″ M4 has larger dimensions: 281.6×215.5 mm and weighs 579 g. Both models are available in two colors: Silver and Space Black.

Who will benefit from such compactness? Everyone, as this is one of the main reasons we value tablets. The ultra-thin body looks great and, even with a keyboard case, this iPad won’t take up much space in your bag.

Fantastic M4 Power for Professional Tasks

The new M4 chip has not been used anywhere else, not even in Macs. Let’s look at its specifications:

  • 10 CPU cores (9 in 256/512 GB models) and 10 GPU cores;
  • 16-core Neural Engine;
  • Storage options: 256 or 512 GB, 1 or 2 TB;
  • Unified memory: 8 or 16 GB, with a bandwidth of 120 GB/s.

CPU performance is 1.5 times higher compared to the iPad Pro M2. Professional applications for rendering (creating 3D animations, visual effects) work 4 times faster.

The GPU supports dynamic caching (using only the amount of memory necessary for a specific task) for better performance in games and applications. For the first time on iPad, hardware-accelerated mesh shading and ray tracing are available, allowing for stunning graphics and games with realistic shadows, reflections, and lighting.

The Neural Engine module is 60 times faster than the first generation of neural cores on the A11 Bionic chip. This is the most powerful neural processor for AI applications today. For example, you can isolate an object from the background in Final Cut Pro with a single touch. With powerful hardware and advanced neural cores, it’s easy to create high-quality multimedia content. The device can handle professional applications for working with video, audio, and graphics, rivaling powerful laptops.

Ultra Retina XDR Display: Brightness That Amazes

The revolutionary Ultra Retina XDR display provides incredible visual experiences. Its features:

  • 11 inches: resolution — 2420×1668 pixels, refresh rate — 120 Hz;
  • 13 inches: 2752×2064 pixels, 120 Hz.

The high resolution offers a clear image, and the screen’s refresh rate ensures smooth animations and comfortable scrolling.

The main sensation is the tandem OLED technology. Two panels are stacked on top of each other, providing phenomenal brightness at 1000 nits or a peak of 1600 nits.

In the 1 TB and 2 TB versions, you can choose glass with a nano-texture that eliminates glare and reflections. Artists and designers will be able to work even on the beach.

Vivid colors, precise contrast, detailed shadows, clarity in dynamic content, realistic textures, and tones will be appreciated by those who work with visual content. Other features include:

  • ProMotion — adjusts the frame rate to the content to save battery while maintaining smooth visuals.
  • True Tone — adjusts the screen temperature to the lighting for comfortable reading, surfing the web, and viewing content.
  • Reference Mode — precise color reproduction mode, especially important in the film industry.

To maintain the functionality of the screen with nano-texture, you’ll need a special cloth for care, which you will find in the packaging.

Communicate and Entertain with Comfort

The system of 4 speakers delivers fantastic stereo sound with deep bass. Thanks to 4 studio-quality microphones, your interlocutor will hear you perfectly. The front Full HD camera is now on the long side of the case, convenient for horizontal orientation calls or when using a keyboard. The FaceID scanner for secure unlocking has also moved there.

The rear camera remains a single 12 MP, but what a camera — it captures live photos and 4K ProRes video! However, few people use a tablet camera for photo sessions. But high-quality document scanning with this camera will be appreciated by everyone, especially office workers. The adaptive True Tone flash allows for high-quality document photography in any lighting, and AI automatically enhances the scan.

One of the coolest features of the iPad Pro M4 is the LiDAR scanner. It measures the distance to objects using a light beam up to 5 meters away and then creates a three-dimensional model of the space. This technology opens up new possibilities for augmented reality applications: useful for architects, builders, landscape and interior designers — anyone who works with space. A fashion designer can instantly determine a person’s height and parameters, a doctor can assess the condition of joints after an injury, etc. Anyone can virtually decorate their home to find the best interior design — and this is just part of the possibilities.

Expand Possibilities with Pencil Pro and Magic Keyboard

These gadgets are not included in the package and need to be purchased separately. However, they significantly expand the device’s functionality and are useful for those who draw on the tablet, type and edit large texts, or take handwritten notes.

Drawing, journaling, note-taking — all of this is more convenient with the Apple Pencil Pro. Paired with it, the tablet replaces a whole suitcase of paints, brushes, and canvases. The new stylus responds to rotational gestures and squeezes for quick menu access and tool changes. By the way, you can now find a lost gadget using the Find My function. The 2024 iPad Pro is also compatible with the Apple Pencil USB-C, which is also suitable for notes, annotations, and sketches.

The updated Magic Keyboard, available in white or black, turns the tablet into a full-fledged laptop. It’s even thinner and lighter, with functional keys and a palm rest, and the trackpad has been enlarged. The Smart Folio keyboard-case also protects the device: using it as a stand, you can change the viewing angle.

Who Should Buy the iPad Pro M4 in 2024?

The 2024 iPad Pro with the M4 chip meets the needs of the creative industry — and beyond. It’s a convenient portable working tool for designers, architects, photographers, artists, composers, bloggers, and video editors. Its camera is perfect for video calls. Document scanning makes it an excellent assistant for creative and office workers. The LiDAR sensor allows scanning three-dimensional objects and spaces, which will be useful to many specialists. The benchmark screen and powerful processor allow you to create high-quality visual content: photos, graphics, videos, and also edit audio. What was previously only available on top laptops can now be done with a tablet. And it is much more compact, which is convenient for creative professionals who prefer mobility.

Those who travel a lot will benefit from the following features:

  • Support for Wi-Fi 6E and 5G on eSIM. You can keep working on the go, always have access to cloud files, and communicate with colleagues.
  • Support for Thunderbolt 3/USB 4 standards, allowing you to connect SSD drives, an additional monitor, and docking stations. What you need for a mobile office.
  • Excellent battery life — 10 hours of video playback.

When you want to relax, you can watch a movie, listen to music, read a book, or browse social media. And you will definitely enjoy games on the iPad Pro M4 — with its speed and graphics.

Which tablet to choose in 2024: the iPad Pro 11″ M4 or the iPad Pro 13″ M4? If you need a working tool, professional applications are better displayed on the large 13-inch screen. If this is not crucial, and you need a compact device for entertainment, the 11-inch size will be more convenient.
