1 Min Read

Apple is expected to announce new iPad Pro models on Tuesday in two sizes — 11.1-inch and 12.9-inch with OLED displays for the first time, according to a new report.

As per Counterpoint Research, the shift to OLED is expected to drive notable growth in the OLED tablet market in 2024, with the tech giant’s panels leading in quality and features.

“Despite the lower price of the 11.1-inch model, the 12.9-inch model has higher volumes. This is because the 11.1-inch model faces light leakage challenges in its panels, leading to lower yields for Samsung Display (SDC),” the report mentioned.

As per Ross Young, President at DSCC, a Counterpoint Research company, LG Display (LGD) is the exclusive supplier for the 12.9-inch model and also contributes some volumes for the 11.1-inch model.

In addition to the new models, Apple is also expected to announce a third-generation Apple Pencil, which will support new squeeze gestures and may include enhanced haptic feedback. A new Magic Keyboard will also be introduced, which will make the iPads look more like laptops and include a sturdier frame. 

The tech giant might also announce a 12.9-inch LCD iPad Air, which will be the largest iPad Air to date. It will be edge-lit with LEDs, the report stated.
