Apple released the 3rd generation iPad Pro in 2018, and the 4th generation iPad Pro in 2020. There was a two-year gap between these releases, but there are also quite a few similarities in the specs. Both models feature the same overall design and are available in Silver or Space Gray, and both feature a 12.9” Liquid Retina display with ProMotion technology and True Tone. Spec highlights for the iPad Pro (2020) include up to 1TB of storage space, USB-C for charging, and compatibility with the Apple Pencil, Apple Smart Keyboard Folio, and Magic Keyboard. Improvements on the iPad Pro (2020) include going from the Apple A12X Bionic chip to the Apple A12Z Bionic chip and the addition of another camera on the back. The iPad Pro (2018) featured a 12MP wide camera, and the iPad Pro (2020) kept the 12MP wide and added a 10MP ultra-wide camera.
