The iPad Pro is a line of powerful and feature-rich tablets designed and manufactured by Apple. With each iteration, Apple strives to make the iPad Pro more advanced, with features such as an improved display, faster processors, and the incorporation of the latest technologies. 

The iPad Pro 2020 and 2021 models are packed with the latest and greatest features, but what are the differences between them? This blog post will compare the iPad Pro 2020 and 2021 models and explore their differences.

Design and Display

The iPad Pro 2020 and 2021 models have the same physical design, with the exact dimensions and weight. Both are available in 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes. 

Both also feature a Liquid Retina display with ProMotion technology, which improves the refresh rate up to 120Hz, resulting in smooth scrolling and incredibly responsive touch input.

Processor and Performance

The iPad Pro 2021 models are equipped with the A12Z Bionic processor, an upgrade from the A12X Bionic processor found in the 2020 models. The A12Z Bionic processor offers improved performance, enhancing multitasking and smoother graphics performance.


The iPad Pro 2020 models feature a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 7MP front-facing camera. The 2021 models, on the other hand, feature an upgraded 12MP wide-angle rear-facing camera, a 10MP ultra-wide-angle rear-facing camera, and a 12MP front-facing camera. 

The new cameras on the 2021 models offer improved performance, with better photography and videography capabilities.


The iPad Pro 2020 models are available in 64GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage configurations. 

The 2021 models are available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB storage configurations. The increased storage of the 2021 models allows more content to be stored on the device.


The iPad Pro 2020 models support Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+Cellular connections. The 2021 models, however, add support for 5G connectivity, allowing for faster speeds and more reliable connections.


The iPad Pro 2020 models are available starting at $799 for the 11-inch and $999 for the 12.9-inch. The 2021 models, however, start at $799 for the 11-inch and $1,099 for the 12.9-inch. 

The increased cost of the 2021 models is due to the improved performance and additional features that come with it.


The iPad Pro 2021 models feature improved performance, additional cameras, increased storage, and 5G connectivity. 

The iPad Pro 2020 models are still excellent, but the iPad Pro 2021 models offer a more advanced experience. The choice comes down to personal preference and budget.
