Is the Rumored M4 Chip Coming to the New iPad Pro?

Recent reports suggest a surprising twist in the upcoming iPad Pro models’ chip lineup. While expectations pointed to the M3 chip, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman now hints at the possibility of Apple introducing the unrevealed M4 chip instead.

This next-gen chip is anticipated to boast an enhanced Neural Engine, elevating AI performance and positioning the iPad Pro as an AI-powered device. The idea of debuting the M4 chip just six months after its predecessor marks an unprecedented move for Apple.

However, earlier leaks in March hinted at the M4’s inclusion in the new iPad Pro models. With Gurman’s backing and the potential AI focus, the likelihood of the M4’s debut seems to grow stronger.

This accelerated pace in Apple’s silicon roadmap may align with TSMC’s production volume, making the iPad a fitting platform for the new chip’s introduction.

As Apple’s “Let Loose” event approaches on May 7, speculation mounts. Do you believe the new iPad Pro will indeed feature the M4 chip? Share your thoughts in the comments.
