Liquid Retina technology
The edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display is not only gorgeous and immersive, but also features incredibly advanced technologies.1 Like ProMotion, True Tone, and industry‑leading color accuracy, which make everything feel responsive and look stunning. Quite simply, this combination of features makes it the worlds most advanced mobile display.
Advanced cameras combined with a large display, fast performance, and highly calibrated sensors have always made iPad uniquely capable. The Wide and new Ultra Wide cameras help you frame the perfect photo or video. And together with studio‑quality mics and four speaker audio, you can even set up a multicamera filmmaking rig.
LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is used to determine distance by measuring how long it takes light to reach an object and reflect back. It is so advanced, its being used by NASA for the next Mars landing mission. And its now been engineered to fit in the thin and light iPad Pro.
The custom-designed LiDAR Scanner uses direct time of flight to measure reflected light from up to five meters away, both indoors and out. It works at the photon level, operates at nanosecond speeds, and opens up tremendous possibilities for augmented reality and beyond.
The LiDAR Scanner works with the pro cameras, motion sensors, and frameworks in iPadOS to measure depth. This combination of hardware, software, and unprecedented innovation makes iPad Pro the worlds best device for augmented reality.
On the new iPad Pro, AR apps become even more realistic. Placing an AR object now happens instantly. Realistic object occlusion allows AR objects to pass in front of and behind real-world structures. Improved motion capture and people occlusion are more accurate than ever. And developers will be able to create even more immersive experiences.
Shoot and edit
The pro camera system makes iPad Pro incredibly versatile. Shoot, edit, and share a 4K video, all on the same device. Capture an entire room in one shot with the Ultra Wide camera and use Markup to redesign it on the spot.
