Why I returned my 2020 iPad Pro
I’ve always been a big fan of Apple products and have had almost all iPads released. Each and every time no product is underwhelming or fall short in any category when it comes to Apple. However, this time around I think the new iPad Pro was a bit underwhelming. Coming from a 12.9 inch 2018 iPad Pro third generation, I picked up an 11 inch second generation 2020 iPad Pro. To most, this is an upgrade given that the new iPad has a 6 GB RAM built-in where as the previous generation is only 4 GB. However, after running multiple benchmarks and testing both iPads for the duration of three days, they honestly felt identical. Every task I launched on my 2018 work just as fast as my 2020. If you’re coming from a different iPad, the 2020 is an excellent choice. If you have the 2018 iPad Pro, it doesn’t really make too much sense to upgrade to the new iPad because the only thing that changed is a little bit more ram and a different camera. Plus, when was the last time I ever use the camera on my iPad? Never. The new iPad has a very good price starting at 799 with 128 GB for the 11 inch model and 999 for the 12.9 inch model. However, I don’t see it to be worth the upgrade so far because it’s not too much of a change and it’s very similar to the previous model. Maybe next time around I’ll see myself upgrading to a new iPad, but my 2018 is more than enough and it’s plenty powerful.
