Apple launched two new iPad Pro models during the Spring Loaded 2021 event: The 11-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Both the models come powered by Apple’s own M1 chip.
The M2 chip, the successor to the M1, is expected to come with an increased processing power of the CPU and GPUs and also add more than two Thunderbolt ports as the M1 chip supports a maximum of two. Also, since the M1 chip allows for only one external display output, it is expected that the M2 chip could allow for two.
A couple of months back, a report by Nikkei claimed that the next-gen Apple Silicon chip or the M2 chip, entered into production. The report predicted that they would be available in mass supply from July this year only, which has not happened so far. Right now, the buzz is around the 2021 iPhones, which are expected to be announced in September.
