Apple iPad Pro

At the ‘Let Loose’ event on May 7, Apple is anticipated to reveal the Apple iPad Pro lineup. The manufacturer of iPads is reportedly planning to fully commit to the 2024 lineup in an effort to draw in new customers and persuade current ones to upgrade. Major hardware improvements, including as a new OLED screen and CPU, are expected for the forthcoming iPad Pro. A variety of AI technologies may also be added. With only a few days till its release, let’s review all of the information currently available regarding the iPad Pro 2024 edition.

iPad Pro (2024): Price and Anticipated Release Date

The third-generation Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard, along with the iPad Pro (2024) and iPad Air (2024) series, are expected to be released in the second part of May after their expected May 7 unveiling. The iPad Pro (2024) series may see an increase in price as a result of its hardware upgrade.

Two Sizes And A Thinner Form Factor Are Expected For The iPad Pro (2024)

Apple has continuously provided the iPad Pro series in two sizes since its launch, and the next model is anticipated to carry on this tradition. Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple analyst, projects that the iPad Pro lineup will include both an 11-inch device and a larger 12.9-inch version.

These future versions are expected to be the first iPads with OLED screens, which are distinguished from existing tiny LED displays by their improved brightness, contrast, and colour accuracy. This information comes from a story published by Bloomberg.

Rumour has it that Apple is in talks to acquire OLED panels for the 2024 iPad Pro lineup with a number of display providers, including Samsung and LG. Because of internal structural changes brought about by the adoption of OLED technology, it is predicted that the new iPad Pro models will be a few millimetres thinner and potentially a few grams lighter. According to a 9to5Mac rumour, the next iPad Pros may have a thickness reduction of up to 20% over the models that came before it.

Along with these modifications, there have been rumours that a larger 14-inch model will be released, possibly taking the place of the conventional 12.9-inch model. This change may help to differentiate the iPad Pro from the iPad Air series. Even if this change is unlikely to happen this year, it still could happen next year.

Expected: High-Performance M3/M4 Chip for iPad Pro (2024)

Until this week, most reports seemed to agree that the M3 chip—the same CPU featured in the most recent MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models—would power the 2024 iPad Pro series. Nonetheless, a recent Bloomberg report raised the prospect that Apple will give the gadget the M4 chip, presumably in an attempt to compete with the next Windows laptops powered by Qualcomm.

Apple has been marketing the new MacBooks as good gaming machines even with the M3 CPU; this strategy is anticipated to carry over to the iPad Pro series as Apple is likely to release more AAA games.

As to Bloomberg’s observations, the iPad Pro with M4 powering it is intended to be an AI-capable tablet. To see these AI powers in action, though, you may have to wait for the iPadOS 18 update, which is expected to be released at WWDC 2024. Similar to the models of the present generation, it is expected that the next iPads will come with a range of storage sizes, from 128 GB to 2 TB. Furthermore, cellular and Wi-Fi devices with compatibility for 5G and Wi-Fi 6E networks will be available.

iPad Pro (2024) Will Be Released Alongside New Magic Keyboard And Apple Pencil (Expected)

Recently, Apple released a new Pencil that is compatible with USB-C and is intended for entry-level devices. But according to rumours, the firm is getting ready to reveal a third-generation Pencil at the next “Let Loose” event that is specifically designed to work with the iPad Pro.

Apple is rumoured to provide an improved Magic Keyboard in addition to the new Pencil, which together with the iPad Pro will attempt to replicate a laptop experience. In order to give consumers greater capability akin to a laptop, this new Magic Keyboard is anticipated to have a larger trackpad, better keys, and a metal finish.
