Aside from bringing its next-gen silicon to the iMac, Apple is giving its iPad Pro a boost by swapping the A-series processor for the M1–yes, the same silicon that is also powering the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Mini.

Unlike the iMac M1, the iPad Pro M1 looks identical to its predecessor. The changes are more on the internals: aside from the M1 processor, you also get Thunderbolt 4, a better 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, up to 2TB internal storage, and 5G connectivity. While the 11-inch model has the same ProMotion display, the 12.9-inch version gets an upgraded Liquid Retina XDR display that utilizes Mini LED tech. The new panel gives the 12.9-inch iPad Pro M1 a peak brightness of up to 1600nits, along with a class-leading 1 million-to-1 contrast ratio.

And since the form factor is the same, previous-generation accessories like the Magic Keyboard (which is now available in White) is compatible to the iPad Pro M1.
