No Ultra Wideband?
There’s no mention of Apple’s U1 chip in any of the specs for the new iPad Pro, so we have to assume that Apple won’t be bringing Ultra Wideband technology to its tablets just yet. Clearly it wants to leave this as the exclusive domain of its iPhone models for now. It raises the question of whether Apple’s upcoming AirTags will be compatible with the iPad Pro, but either way it seems that they’ll still work better with the latest iPhone models.
The new iPad Pro also supports one less LTE band than its predecessor — Band 11 is gone — although that won’t likely matter at all to anybody outside of Japan, and even in that country it’s only one of several bands used by carriers.
Update: According to code found in iOS 13.4 by 9to5Mac, it seems the new iPad Pro models do include a U1 chip, but the fact that Apple hasn’t mentioned it anywhere at all suggests that even if the chip is there, it doesn’t look like Apple is planning to do anything with it just yet.
