Apple’s 2022 iPad Pro lineup is by far the best performing and most impressive lineup of iPads we’ve seen, making it our best overall pick. It is also the most expensive, by far. The design hasn’t changed much on the outside, but inside you’ll find Apple’s M2 processor which consists of 20 billion transistors, 25% more than the M1. It’s the exact same processor that Apple uses in the new 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

We’ve spent some time with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and found it to be faster and more capable than any other iPad model we’ve tested to date. You can expect up to 2.4Gbps downloads, twice as fast as the previous model, 15% faster performance, and up to 35% faster graphics performance.

The Pro also supports the second-generation Apple Pencil, and there’s new hover functionality thanks to the M2 chip. The feature works like this: once the tip of the Apple Pencil comes close to the iPad Pro screen, and when it’s within 12 millimeters, parts of the interface come to life in apps supporting the new feature. The Smart Connector sits on the back of iPad Pro, giving you the option to use it with the Magic Keyboard which features backlit keys and trackpad, or Apple’s Smart Keyboard.

And, while the differences between the fifth-gen and this sixth-gen model are more subtle, the M2 chip is really what shines here, making it a powerful tablet. The iPad Pro, combined with iPadOS and the M2 chip, is as close to a laptop as you can get without buying a laptop.

The 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $799 for the Wi-Fi model and $999 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at $1,099 for the Wi-Fi model and 1 $299 for Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
