Although the iPad Pro series has recently undergone a few small changes, since the current-generation design language was unveiled in 2018 things have mainly remained the same. However, a recent source suggests that this may soon change. According to reports, Apple is preparing a “massive iPad Pro overhaul” for the next year.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman shared in his Power On newsletter that this year will be a “light year” for the iPad lineup. Gurman claims that neither “something of importance” for the iPad Pro nor “significant improvements” for the iPad Air, iPad Mini, or entry-level iPad should be anticipated.
However, things start to get more interesting as we approach 2024. According to Gurman, Apple is getting set to launch a “significant redesign for the iPad Pro” in the spring. This redesign should provide both a “new design” and the first upgrade to OLED panels.

Apple will redesign the next-gen iPad Pro
We’ve recently heard a variety of rumours regarding the potential design of this next iPad Pro. According to rumours, Apple may change the iPad Pro’s current metal unibody design to one with a glass back. Apple has also given consideration to implementing MagSafe charging. It is a feature similar to that found on the iPhone, for the iPad Pro lineup.
Apple’s intention to switch the iPad Pro to OLED displays as early as next year is also not new information. According to a recent report by analyst Ross Young, Apple might release the first OLED MacBook Air and the first OLED iPad Pro in 2024.
Additionally, some rumors suggest that Apple will increase screen sizes of the iPad lineup. It might release the iPad in 14 or even 16 inches. However, it is unclear whether or not this iPad Pro redesign will include the introduction of these larger screen sizes.
We anticipate more leaks to appear as Apple moves closer to the new iPad Pro’s anticipated spring 2024 introduction.
