Its official, the new Apple iPad Pro is being released on 21st May 2021, and both models are available for pre-order now.
Shoppers have the choice of two sizes for the new iPad Pro 2021 – an 11-inch model or larger 12.9-inch model if you’re going all out.
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook launched the new devices and products in the live event last month. Fans were teased with details about the new iPad Pro including that the tablet has had some major upgrades, with the biggest being the inclusion of the M1 chip, which was first seen in Apples latest MacBooks.
The addition of the Apple-designed M1 chip delivers a massive leap in performance, making iPad Pro the fastest device of its kind. The iPads will also include additional ports for connecting monitors and 5G connectivity, and are aimed at users who like to create content on the go.
The new 12.9 inch iPad features mini-LED technology for XDR quality – perfect for streaming your favourite Netflix shows on the go.

Where to pre-order the iPad Pro 2021
If you can’t wait to get your hands on the latest iPad Pro 2021, both models are available to pre-order now from major retailers:
The iPad Pro starts from just 20 per month with 2GB free data each month for a year on Sky Mobiles Swap36 plan.
iPad Pro 2021 specs:
The new Pro models not only look good, but are packed with new specs including the M1 chip, making it the fastest iPad ever, and potentially one of the best tablets on the market.
The M1 chip offers 50% faster CPU performance vs the iPad Pro 2020’s A12Z Bionic processor, and 40% better graphics performance over that same tablet.
If you’re looking to store those post-lockdown memories, you’ll get 8GB RAM with models offering 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage, while models with 1TB and 2TB have 16GB of RAM.
There’s a Thunderbolt port on the new iPad Pro, too. That means you can connect a variety of new gadgets to your iPad with support for up to 10Gbps Ethernet and other high-performance accessories, like external displays and fast external storage.
You can say goodbye to bad connection as there’s also 5G connectivity on the new iPad Pro, meaning you’ll be able to connect to next-gen internet if you have a compatible service – now if that isn’t enough to persuade you to buy it, we don’t know what is.
Apple hasn’t revealed any new accessories for the iPad Pro 2021, and instead it will be using similar accessories to what we’ve seen on previous products like the Magic Keyboard and the Apple Pencil – although the keyboard will be available in a new white color.
You won’t be able to use older Magic Keyboards on the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, thanks to the extra thickness, but will be able to use previous generations of Magic Keyboard on the iPad Pro 11 inch.
