March 26th, 2020 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

Should you buy or upgrade to the 2020 iPad Pro 12.9-inch? What performance and features does it offer over the 2018 iPad Pro? Or, for that matter, the 2019 iPhone 11 Pro?

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

The 2020 iPad Pro (4th generation) is faster than the 2018 iPad Pro (3rd generation) but not by much. Both have more muscle than the iPhone 11 Pro.

There are other reasons to choose the 2020 iPad Pro. Dual instead of single backside cameras. The LiDAR scanner makes apps like Measure much easier to use. It supports WiFi 6.

The really big news is the floating cantilever Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro coming in May 2020. Finally the iPad Pro gets full-size, back-lit, scissor mechanism keys! And it's compatible with both the 3rd and 4th generation iPad Pro 12.9-inch.

Craig Federighi created a great demo of the iPad Pro Cursor feature.
