Apple finally introduced the 2021 iPad Pro, and it will be available for ordering from April 30. Apple revealed the 2021 iPad Pro during its Spring Loaded event, and we’ve learned a few more details about it since then…

One of the things Apple introduced during the Spring Loaded event about the 2021 iPad Pro was a new function called Center Stage. With the 12MP Ultra wide TrueDepth camera, the new iPad Pro is able to center the user’s image every time it’s on a video call.

At first, we thought it was only going to be available for FaceTime calls, but third-party apps will also be able to take advantage of this feature, which puts the user in the center of the video and can automatically track the user’s movement, and there’ll be an API available to toggle it on/off.

While a new Apple Pencil was rumored to be introduced with the 2021 iPad Pro, this iPad uses the same second-generation Apple Pencil as the previous iPad Pro model. This is also the case for the Magic Keyboard, which is the same for the 11-inch iPad Pro and fourth-generation iPad Air.

The Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch model is currently unavailable. On its spec page, Apple says that the Keyboard is compatible with the third-, fourth-, and fifth-generation variants but when you scroll down, the company says it’s only compatible with the latest model. Since the bigger Magic Keyboard isn’t available and the smaller version already is, it’s probably exclusive to the fifth-generation 12.9-inch model.
