This tablet is amazing! So incredibly fast! I love the Apple pencil and the magic keyboard is a must! If you’re in the market for a great iPad I recommend either the iPad air 4 or this one, don’t get 2018/2020 iPad pro, they’re considerably slower with an A12 based chip. This one will last a lot longer though having at least 8GB RAM in the base model. Seriously if you want the best fastest tablet ever get this, you definitely get what you pay for in the base model ($799). I needed the 120hz for drawing with the pencil, the input lag is so much better over the iPad air 4.
Screen Quality Is Great and Fast.
I purchased an iPad Air first, and I had an issue with it, so I returned it. In the back of my mind I really kept thinking about the new M1 chip, so instead of getting another iPad Air, I upgraded to the iPad Pro.Performance wise, there is no difference that I can tell. The iPad Air was super responsive and fast in all tasks.I do like the face recognition better, when it works correctly. I don’t have to do anything to open my iPad, and that is better compared to the Touch ID. The new Touch ID works great though, much better than the old version. The issue with face recognition is that sometimes it wears you out asking you to use your password to open your iPad. I don’t like that at all. I was told that the iPad will learn my face better in time, and I will not have to use the password as much. I’ve turned everything I can password related off, and added as many different face scans as possible.The FaceTime camera being 12mp is awesome. It’s nice to press the flip button and take selfies in 12mp. They look amazing.Even though I probably would have been fine with the iPad Air, I do feel better knowing the M1chip will probably add a few years of use at the end of this iPads life cycle.

Amazing tablet. Love the 120hz screen, as well as the power and efficiency of the m1 chip. Because of the new chip, battery life is nuts on the 11in model, although for most use cases the power is overkill. But, that will just ensure the device remains usable for years to come. Perfect tablet, and I’d recommend it to everyone if the base model wasn’t so expensive.

This device is amazing. Sleek, fast with m1, screen is beautiful.All that Apple needs to do is to update iPadOS so that it has better:1) multitasking and windowing support;2) a file management app that actually has a format media and an unmount media function (as it stands you can’t currently unmount your external disk safely on iPadOS14.. which can lead to data loss, and you also can’t format a disk using the iPad);3) multi-monitor support that uses the full aspect ratio of the external display and can display in extended mode. As it stands, the current implementation on iPadOS is to display a mirrored image of the iPad’s screen onto an external monitor. There’s no ability on a system level to display a separate image on the external monitor (some apps have this function but it’s a per-app feature rather than a system wide feature). This defeats the whole point of using a monitor with the iPad in the first place. I don’t want the image to be mirrored.The second issue with multi monitor support is a more egregious limitation in my opinion. That is, the iPad will not by default display an image on the external monitor in its native aspect ratio. Most monitors these days are 16×9 or 16×10, but the iPad will by default display its image in 4×3 mode, meaning there will be black bars to the sides of the image on the external monitor. This is egregious. The iPad only uses a portion of the external monitor instead of using the whole screen. The very same m1 chip inside the iPad Pro is also inside of various macs, and all of these m1 devices except the iPad can display an image to an external monitor in the monitor’s native aspect ratio. So this is a limitation that Apple has chosen to allow to exist. Apple really needs to fix this.But other than these quirks and limitations, the iPad Pro is a fabulous device. I love it.

The color is perfect and it works great. The best part was the setup was a breeze by putting my other IPad right next to it and everything transferred over to the new one.
It is the fastest and the lightest iPad Pro. Looks excellent. The camera is the best part especially the front camera with center stage. The display is good with 120Hz refresh rate. However it’s not worth an upgrade if you already have iPad Pro 2020 model until Apple announces something which will take advantage of the M1 chip set. I wish 11 inch model had the same liquid retina XDR display like the 12.9 inch model. The battery life is excellent provided with a 20W charger. Everything else is good.

Noticeably faster than the 2020 IPad Pro. Maxed out all 3D Mark benchmarks. Pretty impressed with the M1 Chip
Pros:Fast and will be for many yearsHigh quality, feels, and looks niceSpeakers are really goodFace IDCons:For some, 128 GB may not be enough. If you are a heavy user, get the 256.It’s expensiveIf you’re looking at this versus the Air, it really depends on what you need for storage. If you primarily want to use your iPad for streaming media or looking up things and don’t really need a whole lot of storage, get the Air with 64 GB. If you need more than 64 GB and don’t need 256 then go with this model. If you do need 256 then you need to weigh the differences and figure out if the pro upgrade is worth $150 to you.
I’m a fairly new tablet user. I’ve only used one other iPad besides this but I’m in love with it! I mostly use it for procreate, the new M1 chip and refresh rate makes drawing feel nice and smooth, even more so with a matte screen protector.
