Apple has released its most powerful iPad Pro 2020 yet. Launched on Wednesday, the new iPad Pro 2020 is being shipped from Chengdu, China. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Apple supply chain is hit hard. But this new update regarding shipment of iPad Pro from China is a ray of hope.

The first iPad Pro 2020 orders have been shipped from Chengdu, China, according to Mark Gurman, a reliable source for Apple news at Bloomberg. Gurman tweeted a screenshot of a tracking order sheet. The tracker screenshot shows that the package was labeled on March 20 and shipped the same day.

Meanwhile, Mac Rumors also shared a screenshot detailing that the package is scheduled to arrive on March 25, 2020.

Apple has not provided any shipping details on its tracking system. However, customers based in the U.S. who are receiving their orders via UPS can check its tracking system to locate the current location of their packages.

The new iPad Pro 2020 comes in two colors: Silver and Space Gray. It is powered with A12Z Bionic processor chip with Neural Engine and 64-bit architecture. If we look at storage, Apple iPad Pro 2020 comes with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB options. The new rear camera setup includes a 12MP wide-angle sensor and a 10MP ultra wide-angle sensor. The two-camera setup is accompanied by a LiDAR Scanner, which uses reflected light to measure the distance of objects up to five meters away.

The new iPad Pro 2020’s camera setup has Quad-LED True Tone Flash, Smart HDE and 4K video recording at 60fps capability. Keeping aside the camera setup, the new iPad Pro 2020 is quite similar to the 2018 iPad Pro.

This year, Apple has also launched a new keyboard cover for the iPad Pro, which needs to be purchased separately. It keeps the tablet floating using magnets. The keyboard comes with a trackpad and the new iPad OS 13.4 allows cursor support, which comes on March 24.
