iPad Launch — AI is definitely coming to Apple

Apple just released the all-new iPads a few days ago, and here are my thoughts. There are two new iPads: the iPad Air and the iPad Pro. Both come in two different sizes. This is new for the iPad Air, which wasn’t available in two sizes before.

Let’s dive into what’s new and exciting about these devices.

The New iPad Air

First, let’s talk about the iPad Air. It has received a spec bump, which means it has better hardware inside. Also, the camera has moved to the long side. This makes sense for using it in landscape mode, which is how many people use their iPads. And, of course, the iPad Air now comes in two sizes. This is something many of us were hoping for, and now it’s here!

The New iPad Pro

Now, the iPad Pro. This is where things get really interesting. The new iPad Pro is the thinnest Apple product ever. Yes, you heard that right — it’s thinner than any iPhone or iPod Apple has ever made. This is quite an achievement.

But there’s more. The new iPad Pro comes with the M4 chip. This is the first device to have the M4 chip, even before the Macs! This is a big deal because it shows that Apple is pushing the boundaries with their iPads. The M4 chip makes the iPad Pro very powerful, which leads us to something else exciting.

OpenELM: Apple’s New Large Language Model

Apple recently released something called OpenELM. OpenELM is a large language model (LLM), which is the brain behind an AI platform. For example, GPT is the LLM behind ChatGPT, and Gemini is the LLM behind Google’s AI, Gemini. So, OpenELM is Apple’s version of this technology.

There are two key things about OpenELM:
1. It is open-source. This means anyone can look at the code and use it.
2. It is designed to run on devices like MacBooks, iPhones, and maybe even iPads.

Why is this important? Because with the spec bump in the iPad Pro, it’s possible that OpenELM could run directly on the iPad Pro without needing an internet connection. This would be a first in the industry, as most LLMs need a cloud connection to work. If Apple can make OpenELM run locally on the iPad Pro, it would be a game-changer.

What’s Next?

We’ll likely hear more about this at Apple’s WWDC event next month. Apple usually announces big news about their software and AI at this event. If not, we might hear something at the iPhone event in August or September.

Either way, it’s clear that Apple has big plans for AI and their new devices. The combination of the M4 chip in the iPad Pro and the potential for OpenELM to run locally on it is very exciting. It shows that Apple is serious about leading the way in AI technology.


The new iPads, especially the iPad Pro, bring some exciting advancements. The thinner design, the powerful M4 chip, and the potential of OpenELM running on the device are all very impressive. We’ll have to wait and see what Apple announces next, but it looks like there are some exciting times ahead for iPad users.

So, what are your thoughts on the new iPads and OpenELM? Is this going to be a gamechanger? We’ll surely find out soon.
