The year 2023 has been quite unusual for Apple as there was a formal announcement but no commercial release of the Vision Pro headset, and no new product upgrades for the iPad. However, it is expected that 2024 will bring Apple back to a more normal product release schedule, especially as it pertains to new iPads.
Two upgraded iPad Airs are expected to be released alongside the next-gen iPad Pro duo. Current rumors suggest that a 12.9-inch version of the iPad Air will be added to the lineup. This move is expected to provide more screen size and pricing diversity to the iPad portfolio.
In addition to this, it’s been suggested that OLED displays will replace the current LCD and mini-LED technologies of the 2022 iPad Pros, allowing for a considerable jump in color accuracy and sharpness.
The upcoming jumbo-sized iPads are also expected to come with the state-of-the-art M3 chip found in the latest MacBook Pro, which should widen the performance gap to the best Android tablets further.
Overall, Apple is tipped to unveil and possibly release a grand total of four new tablets, as well as upgraded Magic Keyboard and Pencil accessories, and a new M3-powered MacBook Air at the same time, making it an exciting time for Apple enthusiasts.
