iPad Pro 2024 price against power

For the first time in its entire history, Apple has offered an OLED screen to the iPad Pro as well as placed the new M4 chip under the hood. The company has also entailed a 13-inch Air to the lineup, offering both the models in 11- and 13-inch sizes. 

As far as the visual appeal is what you're chasing, both the devices have so much in common; however, true comparison can only be drawn with a closer look that would expose the specs-related nitty-gritty of both the iPad Pro 2024 Apple and the latest iPad Air from Apple. 

While it boasts a significantly thin screen in all the models, augmented by the good-looking OLED display, the Wi-Fi-enabled 11-inch iPad Pro is listed at a price point of $999, and the 13-inch model can be bought for $1,299. Meanwhile, their cellular counterparts are available at $1,199 and $1,499, respectively. 

Both the base models bring to the table a heaping scoop of storage capacity: 256GB of built-in storage, double of what you get with the latest iPad Air model, and go all the way up to 2TB with price variations.
