Apple hasn’t skimped on the internals with this
year’s upgrade, introducing a 28.65-watt-hour
battery to its 11-inch iPad and 36.71-watt-hour
battery to its 12.9-inch iPad, each capable
of up to ten hours of battery life whether
surfing the internet or watching video on
Apple TV+, whilst a dedicated USB-C charger
offers fast charging. On models with cellular
connectivity, up to nine hours of battery
life is achievable, an impressive figure for a
power-hungry device.

Five new studio-quality microphones have
been packed into the 2020 iPad Pro, designed
to capture “super clean audio and the quietest
details,” and a four-speaker audio setup now
adjusts sounds to any orientation for better
quality, including stereo sound, whether
watching a movie with friends in a car or
listening to your favorite podcast whilst
working out at home.

Apple has also bumped up the iPad Pro’s
storage capacity, up from the previous base
level of 64GB to a new 128GB starting capacity.
Users can upgrade up to 1TB of storage, and
storage and processor upgrades are now
cheaper than they were for the 2018 iPad
Pro. A new Apple-designed U1 chip has also
been included, offering Ultra-Wideband
technology for improved spatial awareness.
The U1 first appeared in the iPhone 11 range,
enabling precise location of other U1-equipped
Apple devices, suitable for Apple’s expanded
Find My app.
