WHAT DID WE LEARN?

The 2018 iPad Pro (3rd generation) outperformed the 2020 iPad Air (4th generation) in 5 out of 7 tests.

We no longer have the 2020 iPad Pro (4th generation), but it should perform as good or better than the 2018 iPad Pro. We are holding out for the 2021 iPad Pro (5th generation).
