Rumors surrounding Apple’s eagerly awaited next-generation iPad Pro and iPad Air models suggest a potential early May release. Anticipation is high, especially with speculations indicating OLED screens for the iPad Pro tablets, a significant first for the iPad Air series, which will now come in two sizes.

New iPad Pro and iPad Air in May 2024

Enhance Your iPad Experience with a New, More Affordable Apple Pencil

Following a prolonged gap of about a year and a half since the launch of the previous iPad Pros, this impending release marks one of the longest intervals in Apple’s tablet history without a new iteration. However, the extended wait promises a worthwhile upgrade, with the anticipated OLED screens poised to contribute to remarkably sleek and slim devices.

Reports suggest that production has been scaled up in preparation for the launch, indicating Apple’s keen anticipation for these new offerings to reinvigorate its tablet sales. Recent fiscal years have witnessed a decline in iPad sales, further accentuated by a notable 25% year-over-year dip during the holiday season.

New iPad Pro Gets Updated with Apple M2 Chip and Apple Pencil Hover

The upcoming iPad Pros are expected to boast the M3 chip, accompanied by redesigned versions of the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil. Speculation even hints at potential support for the Vision Pro headset with the Apple Pencil. On the other hand, the iPad Air lineup is set to receive a new processor and an additional 12.9-inch variant, providing users with more options for larger iPad sizes without the need to opt for the Pro models.

Originally targeted for a late March release, the launch may have been delayed due to Apple’s focus on refining software compatibility for the new devices. Additionally, the incorporation of OLED screens necessitates intricate manufacturing processes, potentially contributing to the delay. Stay tuned as we await further updates closer to the anticipated launch window in early May.


Pokdepinion: I’m quite excited for the Air, mostly because the Pro features don’t benefit me as much. It can still go either way depending on the price however, so we’ll have to wait and see.
