Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new post predicting major updates for all iPad models in 2024. This would be the first time that Apple has updated all of its iPad models in the same year since 2018.
Apple to power 2024 iPad models with M3 chips
According to Kuo, Apple is planning to launch new models of iPad Pro and iPad Air. The iPad Pro models are expected to come with OLED displays, M3 chips, and upgraded camera systems. The iPad Air models will come in two sizes, 11 inches, and 12.9 inches, and will feature new M2 chips and improved cameras.
The new iPad mini model is also expected to have a new M2 chip and an improved camera system. The base model iPad is expected to have a new A16 chip and a USB-C port.
Kuo also predicts that Apple will discontinue the 9th-generation iPad in 2024, which would mean that all of its iPads will use USB-C ports. Here is a more detailed look at Kuo’s predictions:
- OLED displays on the iPad Pro: OLED displays offer a number of advantages over LCD displays, including better contrast, wider viewing angles, and lower power consumption.
- M3 chips on the iPad Pro and iPad Air: The M3 chips are expected to offer a significant performance boost over the current M1 chips.
- Improved camera systems on all iPad models: Apple is expected to improve the camera systems on all of its iPad models, including the base model iPad.
- USB-C ports on all iPad models: Apple is expected to discontinue the 9th-generation iPad in 2024, which would mean that all of its iPads will use USB-C ports.
Kuo’s predictions for the new iPad lineup in 2024 are very promising. If they are accurate, the new iPad models will be the most powerful and feature-rich iPads that Apple has ever released.
It is important to note that these are just Kuo’s predictions, and the company has not yet confirmed any of this information. However, Kuo has a good track record of accurately predicting Apple’s product plans, so it is likely that his predictions for the new iPad lineup in 2024 are accurate.
