This powerful chip not only supports the dynamic capabilities of the Ultra Retina XDR display but also ensures the iPad Pro can handle professional-grade applications and AI-enhanced tasks with unprecedented efficiency.

This architecture allows the M4 to provide up to 50% faster CPU performance compared to its predecessor, the M2 chip. This improvement is crucial for professionals who use their iPad Pro for complex tasks such as video editing, 3D design, and large-scale data analysis.
