iPad Pro 13-inch (2024) review: the ultimate tablet

Apple has undoubtedly given the iPad Pro 13-inch (2024) its all, making it the greatest tablet the business has ever produced. If budget is not an issue, this is a wonderful piece of gear that comes with a stunning OLED screen, a potent M4 chip, and an absurdly thin and lightweight design. But, money is an object—and a very important one—for the great majority of us. so it’s difficult to justify the high price tag unless you plan to use this to replace your laptop or desktop for heavy creative activities. This tablet isn’t for you if all you want is to use it to browse the web while lounging on the couch; instead, you should look at the new iPad Air (2024).

Advantage
+Excellent performance

+Incredibly thin and light
+Long battery
Drawbacks
-Very expensive
-No ultra-wide rear camera
-Only USB 2.0 cable included in box
After all was said and done, it appears that the excitement surrounding Apple’s Let Loose launch event—which preceded the announcement of the new iPad Pro 13-inch (2024)—was well-founded. It was billed as a “different kind of Apple event” and the biggest iPad launch since the iPad 1.

As the accompanying marketing spiel makes clear, the iPad Pro 13-inch (2024) and the 11-inch model are exceptionally accomplished and versatile devices that boast a number of “firsts” and “bests.” For example, it is the thinnest Apple device ever (it is even thinner than the iPod Nano), and it is the first iPad to use an Apple M-class chip (the new M4) instead of a Mac.
and it has the best screen you can get on a tablet.
The iPad Pro 13-inch (2024) is undoubtedly a product of a market leader at the top of its game; with its impressive specs and jam-packed cutting-edge technology, it is a strong contender for the best tablet money can buy in 2024. However, this also implies—in a somewhat counterintuitive way—that this tablet is not for everyone.
Initially, in addition to the impressive specifications, features, and performance promises Apple is making for the iPad Pro 13-inch (2024), there is also an astronomically high price tag: The standard model costs $1,299 / £1,299 / $2,199; the 11-inch model is more reasonably priced at $999 / £999 / AU$1,699.

Many people will not be able to afford it at first because of the price, and this is obviously not a tablet meant for sofa surfing and watching videos.

This isn’t just a tablet meant to replace your old iPad, Amazon Kindle, or Galaxy Tab; rather, it’s a device meant to replace your MacBook. When you consider that, the price (and performance levels) of the iPad Pro become much more reasonable. Additionally, the new iPad Pro serves as a showcase for Apple’s brand-new M4 chip (the iPad line has skipped the M3 chip found in the latest MacBook Air and the base model of the 14-inch MacBook Pro).
The new iPad Air 6 will be much more appealing if you’re not looking for a top-tier tablet to replace your laptop and are just looking for something more reasonably priced for casual tasks. It also has some neat features of its own, and both the new Pro and Air 6 support the amazing Apple Pencil Pro stylus.
The iPad Pro 13-inch (2024) could, however, prove to be a very wise purchase if you’re looking for a capable piece of equipment that can manage some highly demanding jobs, such as video editing and music production, and also comes in an incredibly thin and light form factor.
It makes sense to remove the 128GB storage option from an expensive professional gadget that doesn’t offer a memory card port or allow users to manually upgrade the bundled SSD in 2024 because that amount will quickly fill up. That could not go over so well, though, if some iPad customers feel like they’re being forced to pay extra for an upgrade they might not have chosen.
Adding more storage to the new iPad Pro increases its cost. These prices are for the Wi-Fi only variants. The 512GB model costs $1,499 / £1,499 / AU$2,549, the 1TB model costs $1,899 / £1,899 / AU$3,249, and the 2TB Pro costs $2,299 / £2,299 / AU$3,949.
If you don’t want a lot of storage, you might be content to buy the lower-capacity models in order to save money. However, in a frustratingly typical way for current Apple, the features vary slightly based on the storage capacity you select.

To begin with, the 1TB and 2TB variants have 16GB of RAM, while the 256GB and 512GB models have 8GB. Additionally, the M4 chip in the 1TB and 2TB variants has a 10-core CPU, whereas the M4 in the 256 and 512GB models has a 9-core CPU. It’s important to keep in mind that the higher-capacity (and more expensive) models will perform noticeably better due to the memory doubling and additional core.
The screens of the two higher capacity models can also be upgraded with nano-texture glass, which reduces reflections and glare and makes the screen feel more comfortable to use a pen on. Naturally, this also raises the cost; an iPad Pro 13-inch (2024) equipped to the fullest capacity will run you $2,599 / £2,599 / AU$4,479. That’s MacBook Pro money, not simply MacBook money.

If, like me, you were surprised to see the M4 chip debut in the new iPad Pro, rather than in a Mac, the new design of this tablet goes some way towards explaining the decision.
According to Apple, improvements with the M4 chip, particularly in the areas of energy efficiency and thermal performance, as well as a new and improved 10-core GPU and new display engine to handle the more demanding screen, are the only things that make the new iPad Pros’ extraordinarily thin bodies and “tandem OLED” technology, which powers the new “Ultra Retina XDR display,” possible.
According to Apple, the M4 chip uses half the power while offering the same performance as the M2 chip. The M4 chip can, of course, perform far better than the M2, but because of its outstanding power efficiency, Apple has been able to create the iPad Pro 13-inch (2024), which has dimensions of 281.6 x 215.5 x 5.1 mm and weighs 579g. This is significantly slimmer than the 6.4mm of the iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) and less thick than the 5.9mm of the iPad Pro 11 (2022). Apple even claims that the 13-inch iPad Pro (2024) is the thinnest product it has ever produced.
