6 new things that should have come with the new iPad Pro

Yesterday Apple presented a new model of iPad Pro whose main novelties are centred on the back camera. Apple has included a second ultra wide angle camera and a LiDAR sensor capable of measuring distances to objects up to 5 meters.

In addition to this novelty is the arrival of the trackpad officially to the iPad with a new Magic Keyboard, however this novelty can be enjoyed in any iPad that can look like iPadOS 13.4. The news may not seem much if we compare this new iPad with the iPad Pro of 2018, so we will analyze some functions and features that could have come also along with this new iPad Pro.

Many of these new features are quite simple, and others may be impossible to do today, but either way, we would have loved to see them on the iPad Pro 2020.


We already have many great devices with 5G on the market and the iPad Pro of 2020 has an option with cellular connectivity, however this stays in the 4G . Apple has not yet included this technology in any device and everything indicates that we will have to wait until the end of the year to see it.

Some rumors have indicated that Apple may launch a 5G iPad Pro model by the end of the year , which could mean that we will see a slight update of this model before the end of 2020.

Processor A13 Bionic

It’s probably too early for the A14 processor, but why doesn’t the iPad Pro 2020 have the A13X Bionic processor? We don’t know. Instead of using an improved version of the iPhone 11 and 11 processor Pro Apple has decided to continue using the A12 processor with some slight modifications . Which is still powerful, but is not the last one that apple has introduced.

We don’t know why this decision was made, if the performance was just going to be improved or if they prefer to bet everything on the A14 processor , which according to the leaks promises a lot. If this is the case, and coupled with 5G technology, we may see a slight upgrade with these two new features before we think.

More USB-C ports

Apple is orienting its iPad Pro more and more towards the laptops of all times, and thanks to the arrival of the trackpad is closer than ever to replace them , however to do so requires more ports.

The iPad Pro 2020 has only one USB-C port , yes, it’s true that the new Magic Keyboard includes a second USB-C port that allows the device to be charged, but it costs more than 300 euros. Adding another port on one side would have improved the productivity of the iPad Pro 2020.

Best front camera

Apple has greatly improved the back camera on iPad Pro, but forgot to upgrade one of the most widely used cameras, especially for Face Time video calling. The front camera of the new model is the same 7-megapixel camera of the iPad Pro 2018 .

Todos los nuevos iPad Pro tienen 6 GB de RAM, Wi-Fi 6 y el chip U1 de los iPhone 11

Estas son algunas de las novedades que podían haber llegado con el nuevo iPad 2020 y que no lo han hecho , muchas son mejoras que terminarán llegando tarde o temprano.

Apple could have taken the opportunity to include the 12 megapixel front camera that we have in the iPhone 11 Pro , recording layer at 4K and 60 fps. Something common in Apple that always underestimates the front camera.

OLED screen

OLED technology has made the leap to the iPhone but still resists reaching other Apple devices. It is true that the Liquid Retina screen is one of the best on the market , Apple boasts it with its ProMotion and True Tone technologies, its wide P3 colour range and its 600 nits brightness.

However, the blacks achieved by OLED panels are still far from those achieved by this panel, and surely Apple could include all its technologies . The iPad at the moment seems to be reluctant to incorporate this type of panel.

Spin the apple?

The iPad has been a device that has changed over time, from being a device halfway between an iPhone and a Mac to being a true alternative to the latter. Whoever has an iPad can confirm this, is used much more in landscape format than in portrait , however the apple resists changing its original position.

This means that when the iPad is in landscape, as when we use a keyboard, the apple is crooked . And it’s strange that Apple, which changed the orientation of the apple on its MacBook years ago, didn’t notice this.
