Although there are still a few months until Apple presents the new iPad Pro, little by little we are learning more details about them. They are expected to be a great renovation with interesting new features such as larger OLED screens, a new M3 processor, and a redesigned Magic Keyboard. Recently, more information has been revealed.
Although some details shared must be taken with a grain of salt since Mark Gurman himself has been categorical in doubting them, the truth is that they do not come from a dubious account or one with little credibility, but have been shared by Majin Bu, a leaker who has shared good information in the past such as the name of the new FineWoven covers that replace the leather ones.
iPad Pro 2024: OLED panels, three models, M3 processor and… Dynamic Island
As we told you, the person in charge of sharing these details was Majin Bu on his personal X account (formerly known as Twitter). Although some details seem strange, he has shared things we didn’t know, such as the possibility that the next iPad Pro will have the Dynamic Island.
As Majin Bu points out, these would be the characteristics of the next iPad Pro:
- Three new models: New design with reduced frames and 11, 12.9 and 14.1-inch screen. The first two would have an OLED screen, while the third would have a mini LED.
- Brightness up to 3000 nits.
- M3 processor on all models, RAM will vary.
- New accessories: New third-generation Apple Pencil with interchangeable magnetic tips and new aluminium Magic Keyboard with two USB-C ports.
- MagSafe instead of Smart Connector.
- Dynamic Island via software.
Some of the above points coincide with what Mark Gurman had already reported in the past, but others are new and in some ways a little improbable. A clear example is the arrival of a third size to the range. That is expected to happen in the Air range by adding a 12.9-inch model, but the arrival of a new 14-inch iPad Pro has not been reported so far.
On the other hand, the arrival of the Dynamic Island to the iPad Pro is also a little doubtful. Recently, we learned that Apple would be testing it on other devices so it is no longer exclusive to the iPhone. And that shortly after it is confirmed that it would arrive next year on the iPad, it is a bit strange. As we said, Mark Gurman himself doubts this and has stated it in the comments of the post in question. But, at the end of the day, some rumours may or may not be true.
Be that as it may, Apple would have big plans for the iPad range for 2024 after being silent for a full year as far as launches are concerned. We expect the new iPad Air (with an M2 processor and a new 12.9-inch model), iPad mini (with a new processor and little else) and iPad 11 (with a new processor and little else) for March, while the iPad Pro for the second half of the year.
