Apple has recently pulled the curtain back and announced the new fourth-generation iPad Pro. Supported by the A12Z Bionic chip, the new iPad Pro features a dual camera, the LiDAR Scanner, and introduces the Magic Keyboard with its very own trackpad for the tablet.
However, there are a few other bits of pertinent information Apple decided to hold onto. According to code found in the iOS 13.4 build for developers, 9to5Mac was able to discover that all 2020 iPad Pro models would feature 6GB of RAM. It will also support the ultra-wideband U1 chip.
The third-generation iPad only supported 6GB of RAM within its 1TB model, while the others only had 4GB of RAM. Now, regardless of which model or storage size you choose when picking up a fourth-generation iPad Pro, each will give the same power and performance to the user.
In addition to the ubiquitous power, all 2020 iPad Pro models will come with the ultra-wideband U1 chip, which was first introduced with iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. As 9to5Mac points out, the reason why Apple didn’t immediately disclose the inclusion of the chip because it may not ready for launch and would be supported in a future software update.
The ultra-wideband chip is most commonly used for indoor positioning. When introduced, it strengthened AirDrop support on the iPhone 11. User filesharing between two iPhones with the U1 chip would see a faster response time if pointed at one another.
The fourth-generation iPad Pro is available to order online right now. It comes in a variety of storage sizes, including 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
