Last week, Apple launched two iPad Pro (2022) models in India, with 11-inch and 12.9-inch displays. The Apple M2 processor powers these new tablets.
According to a new report, the Cupertino company is working on a 16-inch iPad Pro model. This tablet will be available in the fourth quarter of 2023. Apple reportedly intends to blur the distinction between a tablet and a laptop. This rumored iPad Pro will have the same screen size as last year’s 16-inch MacBook Pro.
In 2023, Apple is working on a 16-inch iPad Pro that will be released in the fourth quarter of next year. According to the report, the 16-inch iPad will be aimed at creative professionals who prefer a larger screen.
That Apple is looking into larger iPads, which could be released in a couple of years at the most. Display analyst Ross Young revealed in June that a 14.1-inch iPad Pro with mini-LED and ProMotion is in the works and could be available in early 2023.
Earlier this year, display industry analyst Ross Young claimed that Apple was working on a larger 14-inch iPad Pro with a mini-LED display. Considering both of these rumors, it is possible that Apple will release 14-inch and 16-inch iPad Pro models next year, mirroring the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
Last week, Apple released an update to the iPad Pro that included the M2 chip, Wi-Fi 6E, an Apple Pencil hover feature, ProRes video recording support, and a few other minor advancements.
Many rumors and leaks about the larger Apple iPad display have been circulating the internet for quite some time.
Earlier in 2021, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple was planning to release a larger-screen iPad Pro with a 15- to 16-inch display in one or two years.
In June of this year, another report by Supply Chain analyst Ross Young backed up the claims about Apple’s new larger iPad. Next year, he said that Apple will release a 14.1-inch iPad with Mini LEDs and a Pro Motion display.
The current iPad lineup is befuddling, and the introduction of the new iPad 10 last week only added to the confusion.
It’ll be interesting to see how Apple positions a larger-screen iPad in its lineup.
