Apple iPad Pro 5th Gen review
If you were to judge by its cover, this year's iPad Pro might seem like a small upgrade. But as you begin to dig into the 11-inch iPad Pro ($799) and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro ($1,099), you'll quickly see there is more to the story. © Jacob Krol/CNN The big change for 2021 is an expansive one on paper — the arrival of Apple's M1 chip on an iPad. As expected, it makes the iPad experience feel even more instant than in years past. You won't need to worry about closing apps in the background to make sure you have enough power — making it a compelling choice as a laptop replacement.

Trackpad support — There is support for Apple's Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, Magic Trackpad 2, as well as third-party accessories connected over Bluetooth or USB. According to ZDNet's Jason Cipriani, "mouse support is an AssistiveTouch feature and also works when a Magic Trackpad is connected to the iPad," and that it provides "a circular cursor that moves across the screen, acting as a finger would when touching the screen. It's unclear how multi-touch gestures would work with a mouse pointer."
Scribble — This feature in iPadOS 14 for Apple Pencil will allow Pencil owners to handwrite in any text field and have it automatically translated from handwriting to type. On launch, it will support English and traditional and simplified Chinese, and can even distinguish between the two when used together in the same text field.
