Apple’s latest M4 iPad Pro models have worse battery life than the M1 mini-LED version in early test runs, despite switching to OLED technology

The latest 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pro M4 models feature Tandem OLED technology, making them the first mainstream products to feature such panels. The obvious benefits include higher brightness and richer colors, and perhaps the biggest benefit of using an OLED, besides improved battery life, is longer battery life. longer screens. However, users may not appreciate that adding the Tandem OLED actually results in worse battery life than the M1 version with mini-LED, at least according to the latest tests.

Whether it’s peak brightness or just 250 nits, the M4 iPad Pro models can’t surpass the endurance of the M1 mini-LED version

A series of tests was carried out by YouTuber Dave2D, who received review units of the 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pro M4. One of the first changes he talked about was the display, and while we always heard that moving from mini-LED to OLED would result in better battery life, that wasn’t the case here . Keep in mind that the execution differences between Apple’s latest tablets and previous generation ones are pretty negligible, but it’s still something to point out, given the number of notable upgrades arriving with the latest slates .

When streaming Netflix at 250 nits brightness, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro M1 with mini-LED came out on top, lasting 9 hours and 33 minutes, with the iPad Pro M4 11 Inch coming in a close second with a runtime of 9 hours and 29 minutes. The larger 13-inch tablet had a battery life of 9 hours and 11 minutes, which is to be expected since the panel is larger and uses more juice. In the peak brightness test, we see a repeat of previous results, with the M1 version coming out on top, followed by the 11-inch M4 iPad Pro.

Some tests by YouTuber Dave2D reveal that the M4 iPad Pro models have slightly reduced battery life

However, in the Genshin Impact loop test run at maximum brightness, the smaller iPad Pro M4 takes the lead over the M1 variant, lasting 4 hours and 25 minutes, followed by the 13-inch version with an endurance of 4 hours and 12 minutes. . In all three tests, the iPad Pro 2018 came dead last, which isn’t surprising given that it relies on the less power-efficient IPS panel. The latest results show that while the M4 iPad Pro models suffer from battery consumption when streaming video, they make up for it when running games.

Then again, the difference in battery life between each slate is so paltry that the majority of buyers, or current iPad Pro M1 owners, likely won’t witness the variations. However, it is undeniable that Tandem OLED technology will definitely improve users’ media consumption experience.
