As many Apple fans know, the fruit-labeled brand has yet to release a touchscreen laptop — well, this iPad Pro almost changes that. While it isn’t technically a laptop, the M2 chip within this iPad can make it a replacement for your current computer. This chip offers 15% faster CPU speeds, 35% faster GPU speeds, and a 40% faster Neural Engine allowing for 50% more memory bandwidth. Phew, that’s a lot.
In today’s schooling, the need for a clear front-facing camera is a necessity for all the Zoom meetings you may find yourself in. Fortunately, this iPad Pro has a 12MP UltraWide camera with Center Stage so you never leave the center of the frame. But on the other side, literally, two cameras highlight the back-facing side with one 12MP wide camera and a 10MP UltraWide camera. With cameras as powerful as this, put together videos, short films, and class projects together all with a couple of taps on the Liquid Retina display.
Lastly, to get the most out of this iPad Pro, the Apple Pencil 2 and the Magic Keyboard are essentials. While the Magic Keyboard can transform your iPad into a laptop, the Apple Pencil can transform your experience from amazing to perfect. For typical students, it’s hard to say that you will need all the features this iPad offers, but if you’re willing to make that investment to replace your laptop, then you’re in for a treat.
