The tech giant has introduced the latest versions of its high-end tablets, the iPad Pro and iPad Air, each coming with significant advancements and new features. The announcement, part of Apple's spring presentation, showcased the devices' improved specifications and capabilities.

The 2024 iPad Pro models now boast OLED displays, enhancing visual performance with brighter and more vibrant colors. Available in 11-inch and 13-inch sizes, these tablets feature the new Apple M4 chip, employing a 3-nanometer process technology. This upgrade delivers a 50% increase in CPU speed from the previous M2 models and quadruples the GPU power, accommodating the high energy demands of the new Ultra Retina XDR screens. Notably, these are the thinnest iPad Pros ever, with the 13-inch model measuring just 5.1mm in thickness. Pricing starts at $999 for the smaller model, climbing to $1,299 for the larger version.

The iPad Air has also received a significant refresh, now available in both 11-inch and 13-inch displays, marking the first time the Air model has ventured into larger screen sizes. These versions use the Apple M2 chip, previously seen in the last generation of iPad Pros. The update offers a 50% boost in power compared to the M1, ensuring that the iPad Air remains a powerful option for professional and everyday use. The new Air models also feature enhanced stereo speakers and support for Wi-Fi 6E. Prices begin at $599 for the 11-inch model and $799 for the 13-inch variant.

Both new iPad lines boast improved front cameras now positioned along the device's landscape edge, enhancing video calling capabilities. These iPads continue to support the Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard, with upgrades to accommodate the new features and dimensions of the latest models.
