The New iPad Pro Based on SoC Apple M1 Arrived to the Buyer Before the Official Launch

A few days before the official release and even before the ban on official reviews was lifted, one lucky buyer has already got his hands on the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro based on the Apple M1 SoC.

Recall that Apple began accepting pre-orders on April 30, 2021, while the company promised to start open sales and deliver them in the second half of May, most likely on May 21.

Reddit user PeterDragon50 has already received his 12.9-inch iPad Pro‌ through the major American retailer Nebraska Furniture Mart. The user notes that he checked out when pre-orders were just starting to be accepted, and that the retailer announced that the iPad was ready to ship, even though the tablet had not yet been officially released by Apple.

Apple has not yet given the green light to major publications and bloggers to publish reviews. Therefore, the impressions of the first owner and user turned out to be very interesting to the public.

According to the buyer, the new Liquid Retina XDR display impresses with deep blacks and other colors that “definitely match Apple quality.” He also posted two videos showing HDR content playback on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Along with images and videos of the iPad Pro, test results have also been published showing that the new tablet is significantly faster than last year’s model.
