Apple's new M2 iPad Pro boasts several impressive features, including a Liquid Retina XDR display, 5G connectivity, and enhanced processing power. However, one particularly exciting capability for content creators is the iPad's ability to record video in the industry-standard ProRes format for the first time. While this would typically be supported by Apple's native Camera app, it seems as though customers will have to turn to third-party options if they wish to take advantage of this feature.
Regardless, this addition opens up a whole new world of possibilities for video producers looking for a mobile solution. It also suggests that we could potentially see even more advanced capabilities added to future iterations of the iPad Pro. In any case, the M2 iPad Pro is proving to be a formidable option for professionals working in creative industries.
Apple announced updates for three significant product lines on September 18: the iPad, iPad Pro, and Apple TV. The updates include new features and capabilities for the highest-end iPad Pro models.
The next-generation iPad Pro is expected to go on sale later this year.

Apple has released a 9-minute video featuring different Apple employees talking about and presenting the new iPads. The updated 11 and 12. 9-inch iPad Pro models are not particularly exciting, as Apple has not introduced any design.

The iPad Pro will feature the same LED Liquid Retina Display found in the current generation model and not the newer mini-LED display technology.
