Apple’s iPad Pro series has revolutionized the world of tablets. With the latest models, the M2 and M1 iPads, you have a wide range of options to choose from when deciding which model is best for you. Here, we'll look at the differences and similarities between these two devices so that you can make an informed decision about which one is right for your needs.
Let's start with the similarities. Both models feature beautiful 12.9-inch displays with ProMotion technology, allowing users to enjoy faster refresh rates and smoother scrolling experiences. Both models also offer support for Apple Pencil, so you can take notes or draw directly on the screen like never before. Plus, with up to 10 hours of battery life, both devices give users plenty of power to get through their day without fear of running out of juice mid-task.
Now let's compare the differences between these two devices. The biggest difference is in processing power; while both are powered by Apple’s A12Z Bionic chip, the M2 iPad Pro features a new eight-core processor while the M1 iPad Pro features a four-core processor. That means that if you want maximum performance—for things like photo editing or playing graphics-intensive games—the M2 iPad Pro is your best bet.
The other major difference between these two models is storage; while both come with 128GB of storage as standard, only the M2 iPad Pro offers an upgrade option that allows users to purchase more space if needed (up to 2TB). The M1 iPad Pro does not offer this upgrade option; its storage capacity is limited to 128GB only.
Finally, there’s price; while both models are relatively expensive compared to other iPads in Apple’s lineup, the cost for each device varies slightly depending on storage size and other factors. Generally speaking though, you can expect to pay around $800 for an entry-level model and around $1000 for a fully loaded model with all available upgrades included.
When it comes down to choosing between Apple’s latest tablet offerings—the M2 iPad Pro and the M1 iPad Pro—the choice really comes down to what type of user you are and what kind of activities you plan on using your device for most often. If your main focus is gaming or photo editing then it may be worth investing in an upgraded version of the M2 iPad Pro; however, if those activities aren't as important then simply buying an entry-level version might be enough since they're already quite powerful machines even in their base configurations.
