8.9/10
Informr score
The Apple iPad Pro 11 (2021) currently has an Informr score of 8.9 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 7 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

You’ve heard what we had to say about the iPad Pro 12.9-inch. If you haven’t, check our iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) review summary.

You won't find many differences between the two tablets. They both include the same powerhouse chipset, chart-topping performance, and excellent features.

What’s The Same?

  • Octa-core M1 chipset
  • iOS iPad OS 14
  • Quad-speaker array
  • Center Stage
  • 5G capability

What’s Different?

  • Liquid Retina LCD display (vs Liquid Retina XDR)
  • The iPad Pro 11 is just a touch thinner
  • Smaller 11-inch screen

The best option for you is likely a matter of your motivations and budget.

The iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) has a larger, HDR display. As such, video and photo editing look even better on the tablet. Because of the mini LED light array developed for the XDR display on the 12.9, it’s also brighter. So you frequently use your tablet outdoors, it might make a difference there as well.

Everything else -- apart from storage caps and price -- will be the same.

Mac World says, “The 11-inch iPad Pro is a fantastic machine and one of the best tablets ever made, but if you decide to get the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, you’re making an investment.”

Apple really hit a home run with the M1 SoC and it's only natural to see this chip transition to multiple devices. I wouldn't be surprised to see future iPhone Pro models get a version of this SoC too. However, if you were expecting to see a massive jump in app performance or battery life between an...

If you're a power user and love to be on top of your game, then the M1-based iPad Pro makes total sense. Otherwise, the 2020 iPad Pro (2nd gen) isn't a bad option, packing the A12Z Bionic chipset.

The Apple iPad Pro 11 is, again, a successful tablet. The 2021 model is difficult or even impossible to beat on performance and features, especially considering its computing power and the state-of-the-art connections it offers. In short, nobody can match Apple's Pro tablet series, currently. Thunde...

Both devices come loaded with the latest Apple specs, including stunning Liquid Retina XDR displays and the high-spec Apple M1 chip. Powerful, lightweight and compatible with Apple tech like the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil, there's so much to love about this new tablet.

PhoneArena

The new M1-powered 2021 iPad Pro has the familiar premium glass and metal design, but nearly doubles the performance capabilities of last year's already-unrivaled iPad Pro. Featuring a solid LCD display, fantastic speakers, all-day battery life and compatibility with a ton of great accessories, it i...
