In March 2020, Apple updated its popular iPad Pro lineup iPad Pro 2020 with a faster A12Z Bionic processor, dual rear camera, new LiDAR scanner (for augmented reality features), improved audio, and an optional Magic Keyboard accessory, adding a trackpad to the iPad for the first time.

3. Summary for 2018 iPad Pro and iPad Pro 2020


Apple offers three kinds of ‌iPad‌ beyond the iPad Pro 2020‌: the low-cost 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌, the 7.9-inch iPad mini, and the 10.5-inch iPad Air. If you are already considering the 2018 iPad Pro and iPad Pro 2020‌, it is highly unlikely that the low-cost ‌iPad‌ or the ‌iPad mini‌ could meet your requirements. With support for a ‌Smart Keyboard‌ and first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌, the only real substitute for the ‌iPad Pro‌ is the 10.5-inch ‌iPad Air‌.


The iPad Pro 2020‌ is very much an evolution of the previous 2018 model, with certain aspects being improved and fine-tuned. It is these specific areas, such as LiDAR, the camera setup, and the additional graphics core on the A12Z, that would be the reason to favor the iPad Pro 2020. Users intending to keep their ‌iPad Pro‌ for the long-term should also consider the iPad Pro 2020‌ as its minor improvements will make it much more future-proof in years to come.


The 2018 ‌iPad Pro‌ remains a very compelling option for most customers considering buying an ‌iPad Pro‌.
