May. 7th, as scheduled, Cook unveiled the all-new 2024 models of iPad Pro and iPad Air 6, alongside the ideal companion for iPads – the Apple Pencil Pro. Let’s compare the parameters of the new generation with the previous models. For clarity, we’ll use “new” to refer to the newly launched iPad Pro and Air, while “old” denotes the previous generation products.

2024 iPad Pro 🆚 2022 iPad Pro

  • Chip: Chipset (New) 🆚 M2 Chipset (Old)
  • Display: Super Retina XDR screen (New) 🆚 Liquid Retina display (Old)
  • Screen Sizes: 11”/13” (New) 🆚 11”/12.9” (Old)
  • Screen Brightness: 1000 nits brightness (New) 🆚 600 nits brightness (Old)
  • Thickness: 5.1mm/5.3mm (New) 🆚 5.3mm/6.4mm (Old)
  • Interface: Consistent between new and old, both support Thunderbolt USB-C interface

Conclusion: The new M4 chipset boasts a 10-core CPU and 10-core GPU, utilizing a more efficient 3nm manufacturing process. Dubbed the strongest “AI” chip in Apple history, it enhances work efficiency by 50% compared to the previous M2 generation. Thinner and lighter, even surpassing the new iPad Air 6 in slimness, it becomes the thinnest iPad ever. Ideal for designers and digital creators.

iPad Air 6 🆚 iPad Air 5

  • Chip: M2 Chip (New) 🆚 M1 Chip (Old)
  • Display: Consistent between new and old, both are Liquid Retina displays
  • Screen Sizes: 11”/13” (New) 🆚 11”/10.9 Only (Old)
  • Screen Brightness: Consistent between new and old, both are 500 nits brightness
  • Thickness: Consistent between new and old, both are 6.1 mm
  • Interface: Consistent between new and old, both are USB-C interfaces

Conclusion: The M2 chipset adopts a second-generation 5nm manufacturing process, with 200 billion transistors, 25% more than the M1 chip, and an 18% improvement in efficiency. For regular office and study use, the iPad Air 5 suffices. However, if you seek higher fluidity and a larger screen experience, it’s worth waiting for the iPad Air 6. Importantly, the starting price remains unchanged, but the storage capacity of the iPad Air 6 starts from 128GB, up from the previous 64GB.

Apple also showed sincerity by adjusting the price of the old iPad 10 from $449 directly to $349. For interested buyers, it’s worth considering.
