The Apple Spring Loaded Event launched two new iPads—the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 11-inch iPad Pro. Although the latter features Liquid Retina Display, the new 12.9-inch version features an improved Liquid Retina XDR display. Additionally, both new iPad Pros offer Apple’s M1 chip and 5G connectivity for higher-quality video streaming, FaceTime in high definition, and more.

Peak 1,600 nits of brightness and 5.59 million pixels

The best part of the Liquid Retina XDR display on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the stunning front-of-screen performance. Powered with a cutting-edge mini-LED display that uses over 10,000 LEDs, this display features up to 1,000 nuts of full-screen brightness. And, at a peak, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro offers 1,600 nits of brightness.

If you like the sound of using an iPad for your creative work, you’ll love that the Liquid Retina XDR display provides a 1 million-to-1 contrast ratio, helping to enhance your workflow. As a result, the visuals are more stunning and capture that of the real world. For example, you’ll be able to clearly see subtle details in dark images and capture bright highlights. In fact, the new iPad Pros are ideal for people working on the go or those who want to switch from a computer to a more compact device.

Aside from brightness, this new display boasts a P3 wide color gamut and resolution of 5.59 million pixels. For smoother and quicker loading speeds, it includes a 120 Hz refresh range and is compatible with HDR and Dolby Vision content.
