It has been reported that the upcoming Apple iPad Pro refresh might feature A14X chips that can offer performance on a similar level as the M1 silicon. The information in regard to the A14X SoC has derived from code for iOS 14.5, and there are also four codenames so far associated with the upcoming 11-inch and 12.9-inch 2021 iPad Pro models.

Apple does not appear to be allowing its technicians, engineers, and designers any time off in 2021 as there already seems to be a packed few months coming for the Cupertino company if all the rumors and leaks are to be believed. The latest leak has plenty of substance, as it has been taken from iOS 14.5 code, which apparently revealed information about a “13G” chip. Source 9To5Mac has deduced that this mysterious 13G chip is actually the often-rumored Apple A14X SoC.

The same source claims that the A14X can be linked to the internal identifier T8103, which eventually saw the light of day as the M1 Apple Silicon. With this in mind, it has been reasoned that the A14X will offer M1-like performance, which has previously been reported elsewhere. With the refreshed 2021 iPad Pro being the only iOS-powered device expected to be revealed soon, it’s only logical to presume that the A14X is most likely going to be the chip found in the new Apple tablets.

It’s an exciting development that should please fans saving up to buy a new iPad Pro. Apple’s A-series chips have never been slouches, but the presence of an A14X with performance on the level of an M1 chip should be a huge selling point. In addition, there is mention of four device codenames: J517, J518, J522, and J523. These codenames point to multiple configurations of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablets, which are expected to see the light of day in April.
