Cameras Still Lag Behind
Although the new iPad Pro didn’t get the triple-lens camera system many were expecting, it did gain a second ultra wide camera, much like the iPhone 11. However, for reasons we can only guess at, the iPad Pro version of the camera falls slightly short of the one found in Apple’s latest smartphone lineup.
Specifically, it’s only a 10MP sensor, although it does offer the same f/2.4 aperture and actually promises a 125-degree field of view — five degrees wider than the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
It also looks like the standard lens hasn’t gotten an upgrade from the 2018 iPad Pro, since it’s still listed as a five-element lens with the same specs as the earlier version. By comparison, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro now use a six-element lens.
The front TrueDepth camera also remains the same as the one found in the 2018 iPad Pro, rather than the upgraded 12MP version in the iPhone 11 models.
One positive note, however, is that Apple claims the True Tone flash is brighter in the new model.
