by birtanpublished on February 8, 2021

what's up guys Sam here welcome back to another video hope you're staying safe out there in the meantime we've got the 20/20 iPad pro today a product we've been waiting on it for a long time but that's finally here the spaceship has landed it has been almost 2 years it's actually been about a year in a couple months some change here since we saw the last iPad pro the last one was a 2018 model we're checking out the 2020 model today there are a couple first for this iPad a lidar laser scanner two cameras an a 12 Z processor the first time Apple's ever use in that name I'm here

To unbox it and tell you if any of that means anything so drop a like we're looking forward it to this comparison between this one and last year's iPad and hit subscribe it so you stay up to date oh you know it's good when that static keep it clinging to you this is the 128 gigabyte model now let's go ahead and set it down the UFO is landed here it is it's the new iPad pro but essentially except for this right here it looks just like the last iPad pro I really respect how light it is let's just go ahead and not even jump in the accessories yet just give it a little

Gosh I have missed this more on this in just a little bit below this you have some QuickStart guides you've got your little 18 watt adapter right here for some pretty quick charging and a USB c2 USBC cable because just like last I pad pro this has got a USB C port on it just can we get it on the iPhone please I've waited my entire life can we please get USB C on the iPhone look at this little attention to detail there's even room for a little square camera bow which is essentially the main part of this story let's go ahead and power it on see if we get that nice Apple logo make sure the

Rona didn't get to this iPad and success mission accomplished we've got a new iPad pro now I really like my iPad pro from 2018 in fact I have an 11 inch in space great why don't I go grab it right now because it involves me getting up and it's very tight I feel like I've sort of quarantined myself in here ding ding ding we've got a winner here's the iPad I've been using since October of 2018 it is it's one of my favorite Apple products ever it's got the beautiful hundred twenty Hertz display aesthetically they look pretty much identical to before I mean looking at

The camera bumps yeah there have been some big upgrades there is the biggest job for iPad cameras ever but on the inside that's where you're gonna find everything else all right I'm back I know it looks like it was about three seconds but I've actually spent the last couple of hours trying out all the new features and I mentioned you know on the outside they they do look pretty much identical besides the camera boom but there's some really cool stuff on here that I didn't know about before using it so I took a

Look at the new camera systems I want to show you the craziness that is the lidar sensor the a 12v processor more RAM faster Wi-Fi and cellular a new microphone array as well and new wallpapers and that's where we need to start with these iPads because that's a little fun one to kick things off now obviously you've probably seen the new marketing wallpapers but they are pre-installed here they take the place of the marketing wallpapers on the 20-18 iPad pro and you got four ones in total one light and one dark version of each I think the first the purplish in green

Set is my favorite but for a real burst of color you can switch to the wild one at number two year with like four different colors I mean per usual Apple knows how to make something look different just through a wallpaper I'm not saying you should upgrade for the wallpapers but I'm saying you should upgrade for the wallpapers if you know what I'm saying it you don't you probably don't know what I'm saying because I don't know what I'm saying enough of the goofs let's get into the big upgrade here which is the camera system holy cow

Alright that's the raw emotion that I'm bringing your way right now okay the camera this is themselves there are okay there are some nice improvements and they go as follows for what I like to call the front time camera which is like the face ID sensor one the selfie cam it doesn't look at first like there are many changes until I show you this really uncomfortable angle right here because you can really see the change of dynamic range so 2018 really dark the sky you can't even see detailing but you also can't see like a lot of detail on my face so it's just kind of a double

Debbie downer there on the 20/20 proto there's lots of detail and the video looks really great to me I think they did a great job and I was genuinely impressed they're not like you're gonna be shooting a lot of selfies though on the iPad but for FaceTime I mean this could be as a serious appreciation for the person on the other end looking at you bright a little bit more cleaned up as far as the other photos in videos I'll just let you have a look at these I spent some time looking at them myself and if somebody shoots video quite regularly I didn't really notice a

Difference generation / generation now I would think that Apple is using the same sensors or setup in here like it's basically a copy and paste of the iPhone 11 cameras but for example while the iPhone 11 series has enhanced smart HDR that really does help with dynamic range especially on the rear camera these just have normal smart HDR and like in the Settings app you go into settings and then look at your camera it really is identical but to compensate for not a difference that I can see personally you do get the ultra wide camera turning shots like this and this it's fun and

It's a really cool upgrade again though I don't think that this is very practical for the iPad I've mentioned many times do we need these upgrades for the camera is it worth it in fact if Apple would have just added the second camera lens or let's say even three camera lenses I would have said the exact same thing why even upgrade the camera it doesn't even seem worth it until they added it the lidar sensor now this isn't me to happen on the next iPhone as well and after trying it out on the new iPad I can tell you it's gonna be really useful but I wanted to

See is it actually good so take a look at this I got a couple examples for you to sell you on this this is a ruler I'm not sure if you're familiar with it now I know that the system we use here in the US doesn't make any sense but we're just gonna say that these are inches because that's what I'm used to so obviously rulers 12 inches I set it down you can see comes up a bit short actually on the old iPad take a look at my new iPad dead on 12 inches on the dot it was spot-on but there's more my iPad it's about five-and-a-half inches to the ki long

That's an iPhone 11 pro standard I took my ruler again measured it out may try the right measurement and remove the ruler then I scanned it with the old iPad came up like five or six inches I can't remember what it was off same measurement again with the lighter scanner though five-and-a-half – a key but not only that without even having to measure the rest of it it automatically detected that it was a wreck and gave me an entire cutout I tried this later on other parts of my house it measured doors and was very accurate I'm not telling you that it was to the T

Perfect infallible that's gonna be no technology but this is light years better than what we had on the measure at before and I cannot wait to have this on my phone because I always fall back to a traditional ruler or a tape measure because it's been unreliable I actually feel really confident just using the light our sensor and my iPad now it was really good that's what changed my mind about this iPad pro camera stuff it would have all been a waste but the lidar made it worth it because it's actually practical and with more augmented reality features

Coming in Iowa's 14 from what I've been hearing and many other apps just coming to the App Store it's gonna be worthwhile upgrade and one other tip for the cameras apple says the flash got brighter so here's a quick comparison to that I mean they're really just they're going all out with the camera upgrades this year I'm laughing a little bit just because you know of course we could not forget a slightly brighter true tone quad flash upgrade next up apples also claiming that there's a new six microphone array studio quality mic setup on here well let you listen to

These two and then I'll tell you what I did this is what you listening to you right now this is the 20/20 iPad pro it's new you can hear I'm having to talk a little bit louder because that Longmore man it is on my tail and now switching over to the 2018 iPad pro pretty sure you'll be able to tell a difference right away like for example the noise level the noise is so much more severe on the iPad at the point where it sounds like your traditional Mac look like obviously I would say overall the quality sounds a little bit better just for another reference here's

Something a bit more tame with me xiety the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog isn't that the thing that's the sentence you're supposed to type when you're learning how to type on the computer anyway that was a 20/20 iPad pro now switching over to the 2018 hopefully this has given you a nice range this is the difference the noise is so much better as you can tell and overall it's a pretty solid upgrade you've also for the first time ever on an Apple product actually a couple first on this iPad and you see that as well with the New Age full of Z processor hmm

I should have known something was up when I didn't see a 13 X in here because you got an 8 12 X in 2018 and as you know in the alphabet just as there's not a very large difference between X and Z they're both at the end of the alphabet you're gonna notice that in the performance as well everybody testing out these iPads has said the same thing there is like a little bit of an upgrade we're talking like about a hundred point difference from my experience on the geek bench scores what is that going to translate to absolutely nothing this new iPad it has essentially the same

Performance um looking at the rumors it's probably because there's said to be a second two iPad pro upgrade coming later this year with 5g support and a 13 X processor that's not here now though so you've got like the smallest processor upgrade of all time Ram though did see something more significant so on the 28th an iPad pro only one model had 6 gigabytes and it was really secret you only knew it if you about the one terabyte model that's the only one that had it everything else it had 4 gigabytes now all models of the 20/20 iPad pro have 6 gigabytes of RAM but as

I tried to get it to reload or lose some pages in Safari you're gonna have to be using a ton of really RAM intensive apps so storing a lot of temporary data as to switch back and forth and notice the new gigabytes I mean I really mean like I I tried for a couple minutes to just get something to reload and at that point I was like why am I even testing this when no one's gonna really notice a difference but it is here it is built inside of the 20/20 iPad pro the base storage also got upgraded internally so it's double for the same price the old iPad for 800 dollars had 64 gigs now the

New 20/20 iPad pro for 800 bucks has 128 finally Apple also upgraded the Wi-Fi here to Wi-Fi 6 the only other product that Apple makes it has it is the iPhone 11 series so if you get super fast Wi-Fi and have a really quick internet connection then the new iPad can take advantage of higher speeds but most of you probably won't have insanely fast internet so you won't notice a difference here over here Apple also says that cellular speeds got a boost as well but as I don't have the cellular iPad I couldn't actually test those claims for myself unless you're someone

Who records podcasts about augmented reality lidar stuff on your iPad I don't know who should upgrade from 2018 to 2020 like the performance is almost identical the RAM experience for me is almost identical the camera quality is identical in a lot of ways it does get a little bit better for the front time FaceTime camera and the microphones do sound better and lidar is awesome for everybody else though it doesn't already have things like a really great camera on the back or an amazing 120 Hertz display or lots of internal storage or a lidar sensor then those are the people

That this iPad was made for that's all for this video if you enjoyed it drop a like down below hit subscribe for more tell me down below if you're gonna be getting a new iPad and I hope you enjoyed it I had some fun looking at these more to come for Apple products in the future and I'll catch all of you because I'm almost out of space in my next video peace out
