iPad Pro M2 vs iPad Pro M4 : Difference in Design

At first glance, the new iPad Pro M4 is very similar to those with the iPad Pro M2 chip, but there are improvements:

  • Now, the iPad Pro is thinner and, therefore, lighter: the 11-inch model measures 5.3 mm thick, while the 13-inch model has become the thinnest Apple device in history, with only 5.1mm thick!
  • The FaceTime camera is now on the wider side of the iPad Pro, offering a more natural position for video conferencing.

iPad Pro M2 vs iPad Pro M4: Difference in Display

The iPad Pro M4 screen is now Ultra Retina XDR on all models. This means that we will enjoy a professional color also in the 11-inch model, especially suitable for those who want an iPad Pro for photography and video work since they can appreciate their work in a high dynamic range without the need to use monitors for desktop professionals.

To achieve its brightness of 1000 nits (or 1600 nits in high dynamic range peaks), the iPad Pro combines two OLED panels in what is now an OLED Tandem, which adds capabilities to a single screen that has no point of comparison in the market. Finally, iPad Pros now have the option of adding a nano-textured finish that prevents reflections.

iPad Pro M2 vs iPad Pro M4: Difference in Processor Chipsets

Inside is where there are the most differences with these new iPad Pros: now the chip inside is the M4, a completely new chip that breaks power barriers in a device of these characteristics. The M4 chip manages to be 150% faster in terms of CPU performance and up to 4 times more powerful when rendering content!

This is possible thanks to its 10 CPU cores and 120 GB/s of memory bandwidth, which allow maximum fluidity in advanced 3D programs and the Ray Tracing technique in the most demanding video games. In raw terms, we are talking about a chip capable of executing 38 billion operations per second.

iPad Pro M2 vs iPad Pro M4: Accessories

The iPad Pro M4 also comes with two new accessories. First of all, we have a redesigned Magic Keyboard, lighter and thinner, which incorporates a new row of function keys (including the ESC key) and a firmer trackpad with aluminum finishes that do not leave you indifferent.

In addition to that new Magic Keyboard, the new Apple Pencil Pro is also here , which combines all the benefits of the second generation Apple Pencil with new features such as the squeeze gesture, rotation and haptic response. Its haptic pointer will show you where you have the cursor without even touching the screen, and you can also easily find the pen thanks to its integration with Search.
