The basic price for the new Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2022 costs $1,099/£1,249/AU$1,399, though as these are entry-level models they’ll only offer Wi-Fi connectivity. The Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022) or 6th-gen model was announced on October 19. The 12-inch Wi-Fi + Cellular model starts at $1,299/£1,429/AU$2,149. The 12.9-inch model weighs 1.5 pounds for the Wi-Fi model and 1.51 pounds for Wi-Fi + Cellular. Add $130 to the total if you want to add cellular to any model.
The new Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) has an old 12-megapixel main lens and a 10MP ultrawide lens, with a LiDAR sensor for depth perception. The mini-LED screen on the iPad Pro 12.9-inch is unique in its class, with a resolution of 2,732 x 2,048 pixels and up to a 120Hz refresh rate. Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2022 comes with iPadOS 16 OS and Apple M2 Chipset. Even the weight is unchanged at 682g (1.5lbs) as well as the size of squared-off edges and bezels.
The color options on the iPad Pro 12.9 2022 remain with space gray or silver. It continues to output 1600 nits max HDR brightness. Instead, the enhancement is on the pen hover functionality when Pencil 2 is in use. Apple says the Wi-Fi 6e can reach 2.4Gbps speed, or double compared to the Wi-Fi 6 version of last year’s iPad Pro. Surprisingly, the 2022 iPad Pro duo also benefits from Bluetooth 5.3. The proMotion also returns to allow you to view content with a 120Hz refresh rate.
Upgrading to 5G will take that price up to $1299/£1429. The Apple Pencil Hover experience lets you interact more intuitively with your screen. Unfortunately, both the Apple Pencil and Keyboard are available separately. The Pencil costs $129/£139, while the Keyboard’s price is $299/£379.
The Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2022 version has a larger 40.88 Wh battery (i.e. 10758 mAh). Both devices (12.9 and 11 pros) boast impressive battery life, lasting more than a full day on a single charge. Apple claims up to 10 hours of usage for web surfing and watching video while on Wi-Fi or up to 9 hours when web surfing on cellular networks.
