iPad Pro Technical Specifications
Features of the iPad Pro
The iPad Pro has an impressive list of features that aren’t available with the iPad Minis.
The Pro camera system is impressive, with wide and ultra-wide cameras available. The wide camera is 12MP, ƒ/1.8 aperture, while the ultra-wide is 10MP, ƒ/2.4 aperture and 125° field of view. You won’t miss a thing with 2x optical zoom out and digital zoom up to 5x. Take up to 63MP panoramas and autofocus with focus pixels (wide). With a five‑element lens on both models, as well as brighter true tone flash, wide colour capture and lens correction (ultra-wide), advanced red-eye correction and Smart HDR 3, you’ll give your photos that edge. The photo geotagging capabilities of the iPad Pro come in handy when you’re on the move.
The TrueDepth Camera is a 12MP ultra wide camera with 122° field of view and ƒ/2.4 aperture. Portrait lighting has six effects, while 1080p HD video recording is available at 25 fps, 30 fps or 60 fps and 720p HD video recording at 30 fps.
Choice of Display Sizes
The iPad Pro is available in two sizes - the 11” display and 12.9” inch display.
11” iPad Pro Display
The iPad Pro 11” is a Liquid Retina display that’s ideal for those workers who want a portable experience, particularly if they’re likely to carry around an iPad all day in the field.
The Liquid Retina display is an LED-back-lit Multi-touch display with IPS technology. With 2388-by-1668-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi), it’s an easy display to watch. Other display features include ProMotion technology, wide colour display (P3), True Tone and fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. The fully laminated display has an antireflective coating, 1.8% relectivity and 600 nits maximum brightness. The display supports Apple Pencil (2nd generation).
12.9” iPad Pro Display
The 12.9” Liquid Retina XDR display is for those who want a full, laptop-sized screen. The larger XDR display offers an expansive view for those who want to view HDR content.
While the 12.9” model has a resolution of the same quality as the 11” display, the advantage of selecting this tablet comes in its size and brightness capabilities. The fully laminated display has an antireflective coating, 1.8% relectivity and 600 nits maximum brightness, 1,000 nits at max full-screen brightness and 1,600 nits peak brightness (HDR). The contrast ratio is 1,000,000:1. The larger display also supports Apple Pencil (2nd generation).

Video calling and audio calling are both available with the five studio-quality microphones.
