Apple is rumored to be working on a 14.1-inch iPad Pro and laptops with quicker versions of its new M2 processor. Separate sources from Bloomberg and notable display industry expert Ross Young outlined the upcoming gadgets.
The top-of-the-line iPad Pro has a 12.9-inch display. The corporation is expected to release an improved iPad Pro with a 14.1-inch screen based on mini-LED technology next year. Mini-LED is the next generation of widespread LED display technology, which is now featured mostly in smart TVs.
The 14.1-inch iPad Pro is projected to be heralded by two more tablet entries to Apple’s lineup in 2023. Apple is expected to release new iPad Pro models in 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes later this year.
Apple plans to update its 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with updated silicon in the laptop market. The M2 Pro and M2 Max CPUs, which have yet to be unveiled, will likely be included in the next laptops.
The processors are said to be speedier versions of Apple’s M2 CPU, unveiled at its WWDC presentation last week. The M2 is a system-on-chip, or SOC, a processor that integrates numerous computer components into a single chip.
Apple’s iPad division performed well last quarter
This year, Apple is likely to release its next-generation MacBook Pro notebooks. According to reports, they will be joined in 2023 by a 15-inch version of the entry-level MacBook Air. Apple will likely release a 12-inch MacBook in late 2023 or early 2024, expanding its laptop lineup.
Apple’s iPad division had a 2% drop in sales last quarter but is still above analyst projections. The company’s reported plans to release three new iPad Pros in the coming quarters might help it accelerate its efforts to resurrect its tablet business.
Meanwhile, Apple’s new laptops, slated to be released soon, might help the Mac division maintain its pace.
