Should you buy the iMac 2021 or iPad Pro 2021 for gaming? An Apple presentation showing the iPad Pro playing Devil May Cry connected to a PS5 DualSense controller

During its Spring Loaded event, Apple claimed its new iMac 2021 and iPad Pro 2021 with M1 chips are both excellent gaming machines. The iMac allegedly has the power to run Apple Arcade and Zoom simultaneously with ease, while the iPad Pro will allegedly have ‘console-quality’ graphics and frame rates.

Apple already proved with the M1 MacBook Air that the M1 chip could run iOS games with ease. But the new M1 iMac and iPad Pro both have the specs to take the crown for the best Apple gaming machine, and could potentially handle more rigorous PC games.
