It may be the older model, but the 2021 iPad Pro still offers amazing technology.

Super fast M1 processor
Cheaper and portable than the 12.9in iPad Pro
Older model means more affordable price
Doesn't have the XDR display of 12.9-inch

Although it's now harder to get ahold of, the 11-inch iPad Pro (2021) provides excellent performance thanks to Apple's stunning M1 chip. You can zip through games, AR and more demanding apps with incredible speed thanks to that impressive brain at the helm. Apple states that the 8-core processor offers a 50% jump in performance over the original 2020 model, with a 40% boost in GPU performance as well. 

For those after a more powerful tablet compared to the iPad 10.2 but don't need to commit to the more expensive 12.9-inch version, the 11-inch is a solid middle-ground given it's up to $300 / £300 less than the larger device. 

And while the 11-inch iPad Pro doesn't offer the XDR display of the 12.9-inch model (this offers even better brightness and contrast), you still get the larger 2TB storage option which is the largest we've seen on an iPad to date.See our full 11-inch iPad Pro (2021) review for more details on the tablet itself.

Is the iPad Pro 11 as good as the iPad Pro 12.9?

In almost all aspects, yes. The iPad Pro 11 is a good as its larger sibling. The specs of the two devices are almost exactly the same. The key difference, other than the size, is that the iPad Pro 12.9 boasts a Liquid Retina XDR (extreme dynamic range) display, which offers improved brightness and contrast.

However, many people will find benefits in the iPad Pro 11's smaller form, which makes it easier to hold in one hand, more travel-friendly, and more convenient to use on public transport. And of course, it's also a fair bit cheaper than the larger Pro too. To see where both tablets fit in the wider iPad family see our full iPad generations list.

What's the difference between M1 and M2?

Apple's latest processing chips are extremely powerful, and each has its own unique qualities and set of specs. It started with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips which were launched in 2021, and later replaced by the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips the following year.  

The M2 Pro chip is said to offer enhanced performance levels with a 20% faster CPU (12-core) and 30% faster GPU (19-core) than its predecessor, the M1 Pro, which is limited to only a 10-core CPU and 16-core GPU in comparison. The Max chips take this a step further, however, and offer double the graphics power, with a bigger GPU, and twice as much memory and expanded bandwidth, So what does this actually mean

In simple terms, the M2 chips are designed to offer an enhanced and improved performance and smoother experience on the original M1 chips, but that doesn't mean that the M1 chips should be forgotten about, as they still offer exceptional levels of speed and power for a now-reduced cost.
