2024 should be a year of renewal for the iPad. This is what Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst who is generally very well informed about Apple product news, says. According to him, the Apple shape will launch a new 10.9-inch iPad Air and, for the first time, a 12.9-inch iPad Air. A model that would rival the iPad Pro in terms of display diagonal.
This is perhaps what explains why Apple decided to launch an Oled iPad Pro equipped with the M3 processor (present on the new MacBook Pro and iMac), in order to provide its most high-end tablet with truly distinctive features. The rumor of an Oled iPad Pro started circulating this summer. Still according to Ming-Chi Kuo, the two iPad Pro Oled models will use the LTPO technology of the iPhone 15 Pro which allows the screen to adjust its refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz depending on the content displayed.
The entire iPad range will be renewed in 2024
The analyst takes the opportunity to mention iPad sales projections for next year which should reach 52 to 54 million copies. An increase compared to this year (50 million) but still down compared to the 63 million iPads sold in 2022.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPad Air will be announced in early 2024 while the iPad Pro Oled will arrive in the second quarter. The rest of the iPad range should also be given a makeover, with an iPad 11th generation and a new iPad mini during the second half of 2024.
