According to display analyst Ross Young, who was quoted in a MacRumors report, Apple is working on 11.1-inch and 13-inch OLED iPad Pros that will be released in the first quarter of 2024. According to previous reports, Apple may release a new iPad Mini in early 2024.
Young previously stated that new OLED iPad Pro models would be released in 2024; however, this is the first time we’ve heard of upgraded 11.1- and 13-inch display sizes. With larger 11.1- and 13-inch OLED iPad Pro screen sizes planned, we may see a reduction in the size of the device’s bezels rather than a change in the device’s overall dimensions.
Apple upgraded the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros in October 2022 by adding the M2 chip, so the next update is unlikely to arrive until 2024. According to reports, it’s unclear whether a smaller update will be released before the switch to OLED, but Apple has no plans to release a mini-LED 11-inch iPad Pro. The smaller tablet, on the other hand, will go straight to OLED.
Also, Young previously stated that Apple would release a 14.1-inch iPad Pro in 2023, but he has since changed his mind and stated that such a device is no longer planned. Still, larger iPads may be released in the future, as The Information reports that Apple is working on a 16-inch iPad and Bloomberg reports that Apple is interested in producing larger iPads.
As you may recall, Apple now offers a 12.9-inch mini-LED iPad Pro as well as an 11-inch iPad Pro with a standard LCD screen, with the mini-LED display reserved for the more expensive iPad Pro model. Apple may reintroduce the two iPad Pros with the same features in the 2024 update.
