Watch this now: How Apple “stole” the Mac’s M1 chip for the new iPad Pro

This awesome commercial wants to sell you the message that Apple has supercharged the newly announced iPad Pro by equipping it with the company’s custom Mac chip, the Apple M1.


  • The new iPad Pro uses Apple’s M1 chip.
  • Other iPads use enhanced iPhone chips.
  • The M1 debuted as Apple’s custom Mac chip replacing Intel.

Apple’s M1 ad: “Mission Implausible”

Running 120-second long, the Tom Cruise-y commercial shows a special ops character running on the solar rooftop of the ring-like Apple Park headquarters before using a rope to run vertically across the curved glass, Mission Impossible style, and break into the building.

He then goes on to steal the Mac’s M1 chip and put it into the new iPad Pro, but be sure not to miss a surprise reveal at the end of the video!
