Apple's Next-Gen iPad Pro and iPad Air Models Now Expected to Arrive in Early May

Within the firmware, 9to5Mac stumbled upon four intriguing new iPad identifiers: iPad16,3, iPad16,4, iPad16,5, and iPad16,6. These identifiers are speculated to correspond to the various configurations of the iPad Pro, encompassing different sizes and connectivity options such as Wi-Fi and Cellular.

According to the report, it’s anticipated that the upcoming iPad Pro OLED lineup will feature two sizes: an 11-inch model and a larger 12.9-inch variant, both flaunting the revolutionary OLED display technology. This finding corroborates earlier speculations, which hinted at Apple entrusting LG with the exclusive production of the 12.9-inch OLED panels, while LG and Samsung collaborate on manufacturing the 11-inch counterparts.

However, the production of these advanced OLED panels has reportedly caused delays, pushing the launch of the new iPad Pro models beyond Apple’s initial timeline. With over 18 months since the last iPad Pro iteration hit the market, anticipation for these revamped tablets is at an all-time high.

But that’s not all – iPadOS 17.5 firmware also spills the beans on an exciting companion to the new iPads: a next-generation Apple Pencil. References within the firmware suggest that the upcoming Apple Pencil will boast innovative squeeze gestures, including “LongSqueeze” and “DoubleSqueeze” functionalities. Furthermore, users can expect seamless integration with the Find My app, enhancing the device’s utility and convenience.

According to insights from Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter, Apple is gearing up for a grand reveal in the second week of May. Alongside the iPad Pro OLED and the cutting-edge Apple Pencil, enthusiasts can anticipate a redesigned Magic Keyboard and the possibility of a new iPad Air lineup, available in multiple sizes.

Stay tuned to for comprehensive coverage and analysis of Apple’s latest unveilings, as we delve deeper into the realm of innovation and technology.


Pokdepinion: The more one pushes the iPad Pro’s capabilities, the more confused I get as to whether one should go for this or go for a MacBook Air instead.
