A boatload of details surrounding the 2024 iPad Pro have been shared by a known tipster, with one part of the information claiming that Apple is also expected to launch a larger 14.1-inch iPad Pro that will ship with a mini-LED panel, not an OLED one. Additional claims state that all three tablets will be treated to Apple’s latest M3, along with a few tidbits about their features. However, the tipster does the responsible bit by preparing his readers that the information shared might be sketchy.
Out of the three iPad Pro models, Majin Bu states on X that the smaller 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions will switch to OLED, with the bigger 14.1-inch variant sticking with mini-LED due to high costs. Apple will probably bring ProMotion support to all three slates, with all models likely capping out at 120Hz. Interestingly, the M3 chipset with 8GB of unified RAM is said to feature a 12-core GPU. However, Apple has not introduced any M3 with a 12-core GPU, only a 10-core one for the base SoC, with the M3 Pro being treated to the 14-core configuration and beyond.
Either Apple intends to unveil a new M3 variant, or such a version does not exist. The new 2024 iPad Pro range is also said to ship with displays with a 3,000 nits brightness, with support for the new Apple Pencil 3 with interchangeable and magnetic tips that the tipster spoke of in an earlier rumor. Additionally, the long list mentions an aluminum Magic Keyboard with two USB-C ports, a MagSafe connector instead of the Smart connector, and a software-powered Dynamic Island instead of the pill-shaped cutout used on iPhones.
This is what I was told about the new iPad Pro 2024 lineup.
