The new chip promises 15% faster CPU performance and up to 35% faster GPU performance compared to the previous iPad Pro model. The new iPad Pro also features a new Apple Pencil hover experience, and it is the first to support Wi-Fi 6E connectivity.

The 11-inch model has a LED-backlit Liquid Retina display, and the 12.9-inch is the first model to feature a mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display, same as the older models.

With iPadOS 16, Apple Pencil (2nd generation) is now detected up to 12 mm above the display, allowing users to see a preview of their mark before they make it. This also allows users to sketch and illustrate with even greater precision, and makes everything users do with Apple Pencil even more effortless, said Apple.

The Reference Mode enables the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with Liquid Retina XDR display to match the color requirements in workflows like review and approve, color grading, and compositing, said Apple.
