The 2018 lineup iPad Pro will run on eight-core A11X Bionic processors, judging by TSMC's 7nm production. The octa-core processor, called the A11X Bionic, will be comprised of three powerful 'Monsoon' cores and five energy-efficient 'Mistral' cores.
The processor will also include an M11 motion coprocessor and a neural engine with artificial intelligence. The information leaked on the network does not say anything about the GPU, but it should be an improved version of its own processor Apple, which the company first presented this year in iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The processor will be manufactured using TSMC's InFO method to achieve greater savings and smaller dimensions.
Most likely Apple will present iPad Pro 2018 before presenting the iPhone 2018 line. For the first time in the production of the company's tablets, the 7nm process will be used.
The six-core A11 Bionic processor inside iPhone 8 and iPhone X has already surpassed many Intel Core processors. The A11X Bionic should easily overtake the Intel Core i5 processors in the benchmark thanks to the extra cores and faster speeds. The GPU will easily pull the 120Hz ProMotion display first debuting on this year's 10.5-inch iPad Pro display.
If all the rumors are to be believed, there will be a TrueDepth front camera with Face ID support at iPad Pro 2018. It is unclear if the technology will be the same as in iPhone X, and whether Apple will get rid of Touch ID on tablets, or will leave both authentication methods.
