It was via a simple press release that Apple finally announced its new products. We summarize all the details for you.
While all eyes were obviously on the new 10th generation iPad, Apple also launched a new version of its Apple TV 4K media box yesterday, along with a new iPad Pro featuring the M2 chip unveiled this summer.

An even faster iPad Pro
Rumors predicted it, and Apple lived up to expectations. The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro adopt the M2 chip that just found its way into the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air in late summer.
In addition to the fact that this tablet, expected on October 26, will natively integrate iPadOS 16 (which arrives on compatible models on Monday, October 24), we must expect improved performance above all.
Apple talks about 15% more speed on the processor side and graphics performance which increases by 35% compared to the M1 models. The chip also improves the processing of artificial intelligence by around 40% and offers increased RAM bandwidth, 50% faster than the previous generation.
Even more significant, the iPad Pro M2 has 6e wifi connectivity (which the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro lack !). For the rest, nothing changes.
The 11″ iPad Pro is back with its Liquid Retina screen, and the 12.9″ model is still the only one to benefit from a mini-LED screen, brighter and with enhanced contrasts.
The iPad Pro M2s will launch on October 26 at the following prices:
- iPad Pro 11″ wifi: €1,069 (128 GB); €1,199 (256 GB); €1,449 (512 GB); €1,949 (1 TB); €2,449 (2 TB)
- iPad Pro 11″ wifi+5G: €1,269 (128 GB); €1,399 (256 GB); €1,699 (512 GB); €2,149 (1 TB); €2,649 (2 TB)
- iPad Pro 12.9″ wifi: €1,469 (128 GB); €1,599 (256 GB); €1,849 (512 GB); €2,349 (1 TB); €2,849 (2 TB)
- iPad Pro 12.9″ wifi+5G: €1,669 (128 GB); €1,799 (256 GB); €2,049 (512 GB); €2,544 (1 TB); €3,044 (2 TB)
The iPad Pro M1 started the auctions at €899 and €1,219, respectively.
A significant price increase, therefore, is part of the momentum of the manufacturer after the launch of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, which are much more expensive than their predecessors.

An Apple TV 4K at a lower price (but delivered without cable)
Finally, Apple announced quite discreetly the launch of a new generation of Apple TV 4K.
Available in two versions (with an Ethernet port or without an Ethernet port), the box adopts an A15 Bionic chip (from last year’s iPhone 13) and now supports HDR10+ (in addition to HDR10 and Dolby Vision).
But some observers have realized a small eccentricity on the part of Apple. Indeed, no more cables are supplied with the Apple TV 4K. Neither to recharge the remote control (via USB-C) nor to connect the device to its TV via HDMI.
Candle’s end savings for the firm, which offers this new generation for 169 € (wifi, 64 GB) or 189 € (wifi + Ethernet, 128 GB). A price down by €30 compared to the previous generation, and increased storage.
