Apple is planning to release updated iPad Pro models in the first-half of 2021, Twitter account and reliable leaker L0vetodream says.
The new models are set to include a mini-LED display rather than the LCD seen on current models. This would include a boost in quality and brightness, similar to OLED. Apple is set to use mini-LED on the Apple Watch Series 7 and some Macs from next year, sources are saying.
It will have an A14X chip, an upgrade from the A12Z Bionic which was a minuscule upgrade from the previous generation iPad Pro. This could improve the graphical performance, but little information is available about this.

Finally, Snapdragon’s X55 5G model will be used to offer that new cellular technology in the iPads. This is capable of mmWave and sub-6GHz (which is generally slower than the former). It will be one of the first Apple devices to receive 5G, following from the iPhone 12’s lead this fall.
