Top 5 Best and Worst Features of the M1 iPad Pro

Best Features:

1. Display

Let's talk about that display. It is absolutely gorgeous. I am a big fan of the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone displays, and this one does not disappoint. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro has MiniLED which are thousands of tiny lights under the display that can dim for better brightness and color accuracy. On top of that, both tablets have Apple's Pro Motion technology or 120Hz refresh rate that make them feel super speedy. It's not easy to capture on camera, but, if you see it in person, you'll know what I'm talking about. It looks lightning fast.

2. M1 Processor

 A MacBook Processor in an iPad! 8 Core CPU and 8 Core GPU. It's ridiculously fast. And, on top of that, the iPad starts with 8 GIGABYTES of RAM and can go all the way up to 16 GIGABYTES depending on the storage option that you choose. For context, here are the benchmarks for the previous generations of iPad Pro. Okay, pretty fast. And, now, here’s this year's. See what I mean?

3. Camera System

Now, I know what you’re going to say “WHO THE HECK TAKES PHOTOS ON AN IPAD? “ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE GUYS WHO WHIPS OUT A 12-INCH TABLET DURING A CONCERT TO RECORD?!?” No maybe c: But, think about it practically. The iPad Pro is built toward professionals. So, workers and students. And many of them will need to be able to scan their work environments. What better way to do that than with the tablet you're already using? It is far harder to have to pull out your phone, press “record,” and then have to AirDrop that recording to your iPad. It's 2021, that's too much work we want to be lazy. And that camera system on the iPad definitely allows us to do that. We have the standard camera sensor, an ultra-wide camera, and a LIDAR scanner. The standard sensor can record at 4k 60FPS, so you can get some really rad photos and videos out of it. The ultrawide camera allows you to cover a large workspace, very beneficial for professionals. And the LIDAR scanner allows you to work with 3D models and AR tech.

4. 5G

I mean, come on. It’s lightning-fasting internet speeds. Super cool, needs no introduction (even though this kinda is one).

5. Battery Life

With all this new tech and all these new features added to the M1 iPad Pro, the battery life is still respectable. Apple claims 10 hours of battery life; some users have gotten even more than that. Very impressive.

Worst Features:

1. Price

The M1 iPad Pro is VERY expensive. If you want all of the previously stated features, including MiniLED which conveniently does not come with the cheaper 11-inch M1 iPad Pro, you will have to pay... $1,100!! and you still only get 128GB of storage. To put that into perspective, The M1 MacBook Air (which has the same processor as the M1 iPad Pro) is $999. Meaning, the M1 iPad Pro is more expensive than a FULL BLOWN LAPTOP! WHAT?!?

2. Not a Laptop

The M1 iPad Pro is not a laptop. No matter how much power and performance you add into the tablet, It just can't do everything that a full-blown laptop can, like the M1 MacBook Air. So, if you're deciding between one of the two... You definitely gotta weigh-in your options, because you're going to be paying a little bit more for the M1 iPad Pro, but, in some sense, you might be getting a little bit less.

3. Less Ports

Less ports. Hehe and the M1 iPad Pro definitely doesn't disappoint. It has ONE USB-C port. WHAT?!? So, that means, those professionals (the people who this tablet is marketed towards) those who will connect multiple devices and will definitely benefit from extra connectivity... Yeah... They're going to need to buy a dongle. And, let me tell you, those things are not always cheap.

4. Expensive Accessories

For instance, the $350 Apple Magic Keyboard which is a keyboard (duh), trackpad, and case that provides minimal protection to the iPad Pro... Is just that. It's just a keyboard and trackpad for $350.00. But, It does look good I gotta admit. it's expensive, but it pairs really well with the M1 iPad Pro. And, if you think about it, That kinda how Apple works... The company leads you in with products that are relatively "cost effective" And then they add other products that work even better with the things you already have, so, if you want to buy those, they HIKE up the prices. So, then you gotta give up a lot of money. And, oftentimes... that's what we do because they work really well together! But, that means we spend a lot more money than we initially intended.

5. Water Resistance

Now, I know you're not going to be taking out as often as you would your iPhone But, it would be beneficial to have the feature. A lot of professionals need to be able to get their hands dirty. And many of them can and will get rugged, waterproof cases that will protect their iPads, but it would be nice to have that feature right out of the box. And it definitely could be a stand-out feature for the next generation of iPads which will eventually come.

These are the top 5 best and worst features of the M1 iPad Pro, based on practical usage and user experience. Your opinions may vary based on your specific needs and preferences.
