7 Reasons to Wait for the 2021 iPad Pro & 3 Reasons Not To



Wait for Even Better Performance

Wait for Even Better Performance

While the 2020 iPad Pros should provide enough firepower for most people, those looking to do intense work on their tablet might want to hang back and wait for the new iPad Pro. 

The 2020 iPad Pro models feature Apple's A12Z Bionic chip. That said, the chip is apparently the same A12X processor in the 2018 iPad Pros with an extra GPU core enabled

Nothing is confirmed, but it looks like the 2021 iPad Pro will come with a newer processor dubbed A14X. If true, it could mean that the iPad Pro line's performance takes a bigger step forward in 2021. A Digitimes report backs up these claims. 

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman claims the new processor will be on par with the M1 chip Apple put into MacBooks last year. 

Hit-or-miss source Digitimes says Apple's new 5-nanometer-based A14X processor, which is reportedly on board the new iPad Pro, went into mass production in the fourth quarter of 2020.

According to 9to5Mac, iOS 14.5's code confirms Apple's new processor. iOS 14.5 is currently in beta ahead of a release in the spring. 

A brand new processor should help the iPad Pro perform better in key areas like battery life, overall speed/multitasking, and gaming.
