  1. Available space is less and varies due to many factors. Storage capacity subject to change based on software version, settings, and iPad model. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; 1TB = 1 trillion bytes. Actual formatted capacity less.
  2. Size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process.
  3. The displays have rounded corners. When measured diagonally as a rectangle, the 13‑inch iPad Pro is 13 inches, and the 11‑inch iPad Pro is 11.1 inches. Actual viewable area is less.
  4. FaceTime calling requires a FaceTime-enabled device for the caller and recipient and a Wi‑Fi connection. Availability over a cellular network depends on carrier policies; data charges may apply.
  5. Wi‑Fi 6E available in countries and regions where supported.
  6. Data plan required. 5G, Gigabit LTE, and Wi-Fi calling are available in select markets and through select carriers. Speeds are based on theoretical throughput and vary based on site conditions and carrier. For details on 5G and LTE support, contact your carrier and see apple.com/ipad/cellular.
  7. Cellular data plan is sold separately. The model you purchase is configured to work with a particular cellular network technology. Check with your carrier for compatibility and cellular data plan availability.
  8. Not all carriers support eSIM. See your carrier for more details. For Model A3007 and A3006, contact China Unicom for more details.
  9. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Internet access required. Cellular data charges may apply.
  10. Standard dynamic range video content only.
  11. Testing conducted by Apple in March and April 2024 using preproduction iPad Pro 11‑inch (M4) and iPad Pro 13‑inch (M4) units. Testing consisted of full battery discharge while performing each of the following tasks: video playback and internet browsing using Wi‑Fi or cellular data network (cellular models subscribed to LTE and 5G carrier networks). Video content was a repeated 2‑hour 23‑minute movie purchased from the iTunes Store. Internet over Wi‑Fi and cellular data network tests were conducted using dedicated web servers, browsing snapshot versions of 20 popular web pages. All settings were default except: Wi‑Fi was associated with a network (except for internet browsing over cellular data network); the Wi‑Fi feature Ask to Join Networks and Auto-Brightness were turned off; Brightness was set to 50%; and WPA2 encryption was enabled. Battery life depends on device settings, usage, network, and many other factors. Battery tests are conducted using specific iPad units; actual results may vary.
  12. Wireless broadband recommended; fees may apply.
  13. In China mainland, you can use Apple Pay on the web in Safari only on compatible iPhone and iPad models using iOS 11.2 or later.
  14. Data accurate as of product launch.
  15. Product recycled or renewable content is the mass of certified recycled material relative to the overall mass of the device, not including packaging or in‑box accessories.
  16. We estimate the percentage of electricity-related emissions in our manufacturing that is sourced from clean electricity by attributing to our carbon model clean energy procured by our suppliers in the prior fiscal year, based on the supplier manufacturing allocations at time of product launch. Included in this number is only clean electricity that Apple or its suppliers have procured as part of Apple’s Supplier Clean Energy Program.
  17. Carbon reductions are calculated against a baseline scenario: 1) No use of clean electricity for manufacturing or product use, beyond what is already available on the latest modeled grid (based on regional emissions factors). 2) Apple’s carbon intensity of key materials as of 2015 (our baseline year for our 2030 product carbon neutrality goal). Carbon intensity of materials reflects use of recycled content and production technology. 3) Apple’s average mix of transportation modes (air, rail, ocean, ground) by product line across three years (fiscal years 2017 to 2019) to best capture the baseline transportation emissions of our products.
  18. ENERGY STAR and the ENERGY STAR mark are registered trademarks owned by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
  19. Based on retail packaging as shipped by Apple. Breakdown of U.S. retail packaging by weight. Adhesives, inks, and coatings are excluded from our calculations of plastic content and packaging weight.
  20. Apple Regulated Substances Specification describes Apple’s restrictions on the use of certain chemical substances in materials in Apple products, accessories, manufacturing processes, and packaging used for shipping products to Apple’s end-customers. Restrictions are derived from international laws or directives, regulatory agencies, eco-label requirements, environmental standards, and Apple policies. Every Apple product is free of PVC and phthalates except for AC power cords in India, Thailand (for two-prong AC power cords), and South Korea, where we continue to seek government approval for our PVC and phthalates replacement. Apple products comply with the European Union Directive 2011/65/EU and its amendments, including exemptions for the use of lead such as high-temperature solder. Apple is working to phase out the use of these exempted substances for new products where technically possible.
  • Apple Card Monthly Installments (ACMI) is a 0% APR payment option that is only available if you select it at checkout in the U.S. for eligible products purchased at Apple Store locations, apple.com, the Apple Store app, or by calling 1‑800‑MY‑APPLE, and is subject to credit approval and credit limit. See support.apple.com/kb/HT211204 for more information about eligible products. APR ranges may vary based on when you accepted an Apple Card. Cardholders who accept an Apple Card on and/or after February 1, 2024: Variable APRs for Apple Card, other than ACMI, range from 19.24% to 29.49% based on creditworthiness. Rates as of February 1, 2024. Existing cardholders: See your Customer Agreement for applicable rates and fee. If you buy an ACMI eligible product by choosing to pay in full with Apple Card (instead of using ACMI), that purchase is subject to the Apple Card variable APR, not 0% APR. Taxes and shipping on ACMI purchases are subject to the variable APR, not 0% APR. When you buy an iPhone with ACMI, you’ll need to select AT&T, T‑Mobile, or Verizon as your carrier when you check out. An iPhone purchased with ACMI is always unlocked, so you can switch carriers at any time. ACMI is not available for purchases made online at the following special stores: Apple Employee Purchase Plan; participating corporate Employee Purchase Programs; Apple at Work for small businesses; Government, and Veterans and Military Purchase Programs, or on refurbished devices. The last month’s payment for each product will be the product’s purchase price, less all other payments at the monthly payment amount. ACMI financing is subject to change at any time for any reason, including but not limited to, installment term lengths and eligible products. See support.apple.com/kb/HT211204 for information about upcoming changes to ACMI financing. See the Apple Card Customer Agreement for more information about ACMI financing.

Lookie what we’ve got here…


Looks like the one I saw in Costco earlier today. But I couldn’t get past that screen since the store hadn’t set it up yet.

Yep, and, in fact, this is a family member’s so I’m just sitting tight here for them to get home so I can try a few things on it like streaming original quality UHD Blu-ray HDR to it from Plex. It’s the 1TB model so it’s got the full-fat M4 and 16GB of RAM.


That should be a fantastic HDR media player, though rather pricey for that purpose alone. Haha


Lisa’s review of the 13” Pro is out:


Just back in office and catching up on my video viewing - interesting to see Jason Snell criticizing Apple’s failure, since his first iPad Pro in 2015, to make iPadOS worthwhile and match the iPad’s power…his take on the new 13" M4

  1. The 13" iPP is essentially a 13" MacBook Air, without a useful OS
  2. It seems Apple, which started out with the iPad being the future of computing, has now retreated in the face of the MacBook resurgence with Apple silicon
  3. Suggested everyone read Federico Viticci’s article on the failures of iPadOS - basically, people who don’t really use an iPad are fine with iPadOS, EVERYONE else knows it is a failure

I know, I know, @Desertlap repeatedly warns me that MacOS ain’t coming, but iPad Pro is just way too expensive to justify its own hampered OS experience…

PS - how is it that Apple supports Thunderbolt 4 on their ARM processor but Snapdragon Elite does not (at least on today;s rumored releases)???

PPS - even Snell’s solution is virtualize MacOS on iPad, but he says he really doesn’t want that - make iPad OS do the job. Maybe everyone here already knew this, but even M4 on iPad Pro does not really multitask with background operation - it is almost preemptive multi-tasking. As he pointed out, if you are exporting a Final Cut video and switch screens away to another app, Final Cut actually TERMINATES the export operation.


I have to strongly echo this. As a real world example, the family member who I mentioned earlier and shared a photo their new iPad Pro is already. The reason being is Apple has quickly patched out just-in-time (JIT) compilation hack that users used to run certain apps obtained via sideloading (via SideStore). This was impeccably poor timing on Apple’s part right when they released incredibly capable hardware to patch this out since things like third party browsers, VMs, and emulators are all now a no-go yet again. So now many of the useful apps that are only found outside of the App Store that he wanted to use he can’t, so back it goes.

I don’t expect Apple to ever give up their fight against side loading. Yes they obviously have a vested financial incentive against doing so, though a counterargument could be made that if they did they’d sell a lot more iPads.

But… when we talk to the actual engineers that have to support and develop the platform, they tell us to a person their big issue with it is how insecure and potentially unstable it would make the device and/or platform and they are more than happy to cite a zillion examples on both Windows and Android.

Not saying I completey agree, but I don’t think they are totally off base either.

And specifically when it comes to emulators I think they are taking perhaps an overly cautious stance, but they are also quick to point out that law and precedent is far from settled on that topic.

Plus, I also suspect they think if they bless/allow it too much, it could be flipped around on them. In others words , on paper anyway it might not be terribly difficult to get MacOS or IOS running on the new Snapdragons


(*) but with pen and touch support.

That’s still, all these years later, a huge benefit of the Surface devices. If only they ran cool and had really long battery life!

I know I should give up my obsession about making an iPad Pro my “one and only” but the writings of Viticci ring true to me:

"I’m tired of hearing apologies that smell of Stockholm syndrome from iPad users who want to invalidate these opinions and claim that everything is perfect. I’m tired of seeing this cycle start over every two years, with fantastic iPad hardware and the usual (justified), “But it’s the software…” line at the end. I’m tired of feeling like my computer is a second-class citizen in Apple’s ecosystem. I’m tired of being told that iPads are perfectly fine if you use Final Cut and Logic, but if you don’t use those apps and ask for more desktop-class features, you’re a weirdo, and you should just get a Mac and shut up. And I’m tired of seeing the best computer Apple ever made not live up to its potential.

I started using the iPad as my main computer when I was stuck in a hospital bed and couldn’t use a laptop. I kept using it because once you get a taste of that freedom, it’s hard to go back. I will continue using it because none of the alternatives match Apple’s hardware quality, app ecosystem, and pure delight. But loving something doesn’t mean ignoring its flaws. And iPadOS is a flawed operating system that still doesn’t get the basics right and, as a result, drags down the entire product line."

And if only had a quality pen. Slim Pen 2 was an improvement, but it still ain’t it.


It has been surprising reading all the reviews of the M4 iPP - mostly because it looks like the biggest hits are the updated Magic Keyboard and Pencil Pro. That’s probably because right now, other than the amazing OLED screen, everything else is just standard iPaddyness, with all eyes focused on the WWDC keynote.

Unfortunately, I doubt WWDC is going to be much help, as I expect every 10th word/phrase to be “AI” or “machine learning.” Hopefully I am wrong and iPadOS 18 will blossom - apologies to @Desertlap in advance, into something more worthy of this top level MacBook Air hardware.


I primarily focus on artist reviews, since that’s my primary use. Ironically, the pen upgrade has been hit and miss with artists. Not total miss, but just not worth the upgrade versus the previous compared to the price of upgrading. But almost everyone likes the screen improvement for art, with the big surprise being the numbee of artists who sprung for the nano texture glass and like it as an alternative to a paper like screen protector. The artists that do mention the magic keyboard do seem to be impressed with the upgrade overall, with biggest positives being that it seems more stable and less likely to tip backwards.
