We’ve heard a lot of rumors when it comes to new iPad models since Apple hadn’t announced any new tablets in 2023. 9to5Mac’s sources have now revealed more details about what to expect from Apple’s plans for the iPad in 2024. This apparently includes not only a larger Apple iPad Air, but also a thinner iPad Pro.

New iPad Air and iPad Pro 2024 are about to be launched

It is no longer a secret that Apple is working on new iPad models. In 2024, the updates seem to be a little larger than usual. S24 first reported last year that Apple was working on two new versions of the iPad Air, codenamed J507 and J537. While one of these models will be quite similar to the current iPad Air, the other is said to have a larger display.

If true, it would be the first time Apple has offered the iPad Air in two different sizes. The new, larger version, Apple iPad Air 12.9, will have essentially the same dimensions as the current iPad Pro 12.9. This suggests that the display size will also be almost identical. The smaller iPad Air is not expected to get any significant design changes.

As for the iPad Pro, it seems that there will be some slight changes in the new models, at least in terms of dimensions. The models for 2024 will be slightly larger and also thinner. The reason for this is supposedly the OLED display, which has fewer layers than the LCD display. Here are the estimated dimensions:

  • 11 inch iPad Pro (current): 247.6 x 178.5 x 5.9 mm
  • 11 inch iPad Pro (new): 249.7 x 177.5 x 5.1 mm
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (current): 280.6 x 214.9 x 6.4 mm
  • 12.9 inch iPad Pro (new): 281.5 x 215.5 x 5.0 mm
  • 10.9 inch iPad Air (current): 247.6 x 178.5 x 6.1 mm
  • 12.9 inch iPad Air (New): 280.6mm x 214.9mm x 6.0mm

Based on what we’ve heard, accessory makers are ramping up production of cases for the new iPads, which are expected to ship as early as next month. This is in line with Bloomberg’s statements about new iPads that will be released alongside new MacBooks by the end of March.

Rumored specs

The new Apple iPad Pro models should get the M3 chipset as well as OLED displays and more storage options. According to some rumors, Apple also develops new accessories to take advantage of the iPad Pro. As far as the new iPad Air is concerned, the drive is likely to switch from the M1 to the M2 or M3 chip.

The beta version of iOS 17.4 also points to a new iPad with a Face ID camera in landscape format. In addition, rumors are slowly increasing about the first iPad Fold, which could replace the iPad mini. Apple could announce a special event to unveil the new products as early as next month.
