M2 chip and MagSafe: what to expect from the iPad Pro 2022 | Digital Trends Spanish

Apple is working on a new model of the iPad Pro. For now, the leaks suggest that although there will be no changes in its design, it will have several hardware improvements that will make it worth taking a look at this tablet in 2022. Here we tell you what to expect from the iPad Pro 2022which, as is the case with the iPad Pro that you can currently buy on the Apple page, will have a renewal in the 11 and 12.9-inch models.

Mini-LED display

In 2021, Apple refreshed the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a “Liquid Retina XDR display” or mini-LED technology. Outside of technicalities, this technology translates into a brighter screen with higher contrast. In numbers, that brightness could top out at 1,600 nits. Yes, it was a very bright screen, ideal for use outdoors in strong sunlight.

We expect the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros to integrate this same technology.

It is expected that it will be in 2022 when Apple introduces its M2 chip, the second generation of its in-house processors.

Since the 2021 iPad Pro integrated the M1 chip, the same one that Apple included in the MacBook Air, Mac Mini and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, everything indicates that we will see the M2 chip in the new Apple tablet.

The improvement of the new M2 chip will be a greater number of GPU cores, for a total of between nine and 10. The CPU cores would remain between seven and eight.

MagSafe charger

Just like the iPhone 13, the new iPad Pro 2022 could integrate MagSafe wireless charging. This change could see Apple put a glass back cover on the iPad Pro, however, since that change is likely to result in tens of thousands of broken iPads, Apple may opt to put glass in a large logo on the back. back to facilitate wireless charging.

And speaking of improvements to device charging, and taking advantage of the large battery built into an iPad, it’s likely that the new iPad Pro can share a bit of charge to your iPhone or AirPods.

A new Apple Pencil?

Since the beginning of 2021 there has been talk of a renewal of the Apple Pencil. While it might be time for a refresh, the Appe Pencil works great, so why change something that isn’t broken?

A titanium chassis?

Of all those revealed about the improvements that the new iPad Pro could incorporate, this seems the least likely, and that is that a titanium chassis would considerably raise the price of the tablet. Yes, it would certainly add a lot of strength, but the aluminum body is fine, don’t you think?
