Apple 2024 iPad lineup: OLED displays, M3 chip, and more

According to reports, Apple is planning a major revamp of its iPad lineup in 2024, including the introduction of OLED displays and the M3 chip. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the new iPad Pros will be the first to receive the OLED treatment, with mass production beginning in late 2024. In contrast, the M3 chip is expected to be available across all iPad models next year.

OLED displays for the iPad Pro

OLED displays outperform LCD displays in several ways, including higher contrast, wider viewing angles, and lower power consumption. This makes them a perfect match for Apple’s flagship tablet, the iPad Pro.

According to Kuo, the new OLED iPad Pros will use the Tandem design and LTPO backplanes, which are also used in the iPhone 15 Pros. This implies that the new iPad Pros will outperform the current mini-LED models in terms of display performance and power consumption.

M3 chip for all iPad models

The M3 chip is expected to outperform the current M1 chip in terms of performance and power efficiency. All iPad models will be even more powerful and responsive as a result, making them ideal for demanding tasks like gaming, video editing, and multitasking.

iPad Air (12.9-inch display)

Aside from the new iPad Pros, Apple is rumoured to be planning the release of a 12.9-inch iPad Air in 2024. This is the first time Apple has offered an iPad Air with such a large display.

The 12.9-inch iPad Air is expected to be marketed as a less expensive alternative to the iPad Pro. It is rumoured that it will have an LCD display rather than an OLED display, but it will retain the M3 chip and other advanced features.

Production schedule

According to Kuo, the new iPad Air models will go into mass production in the first quarter of 2024, with the new OLED iPad Pros following in late 2024. This implies that the new iPad Air models could be released as early as March 2024, with the new iPad Pros following in October or November 2024.

Estimates of shipment

Apple will ship 52-54 million iPads in 2024, according to Kuo, a slight increase from the estimated 50 million units shipped this year. This, however, falls far short of the 63 million pandemic peak of 2022.

Why is demand being reduced?

Lower iPad demand, according to Kuo, is due to two main factors: declining work-from-home demand and a lack of structural change in the entertainment and productivity user experience.

Pricing and features

It is still too early to speculate on the specific features and pricing of the new iPad models. However, based on rumours and leaks, we can anticipate the new iPad Pros to include the following features:

  • OLED displays
  • M3 chip
  • Improved form factor design

The new iPad Air models are expected to have the following features:

  • 10.9-inch and 12.9-inch LCD displays
  • M3 chip
  • Oxide backplane (for the 12.9-inch model)

Due to the higher cost of OLED displays, we can expect the new iPad Pros to be more expensive than the current models in terms of pricing. The new iPad Air models, particularly the 12.9-inch model, are expected to be more expensive than the current models.

Overall, the iPad lineup for 2024 is looking very promising. Apple is clearly looking to differentiate the iPad from the competition with the introduction of OLED displays and the M3 chip.
