Apple iPad Pro may become thinner with OLED display update

Apple is reportedly preparing for a major update of the iPad Pro line. The most noticeable change may be the introduction of OLED displays. This transition may make the tablets a bit thinner than before, a new report suggests.

According to 9to5Mac, the updated OLED iPad Pro will be more than 1 mm thinner than current models. For comparison, the existing 12.9-inch iPad Pro is 6.4 mm thick, while the updated version may be 5 mm thinner.

The 11-inch OLED iPad Pro is also predicted to have a thinner profile – 5.1 mm compared to 5.9 mm for its predecessor. In addition, both models may be slightly taller and wider than their current counterparts.

Besides, there is information that Apple will introduce two iPad Air sizes for the first time. One will be similar to the current model, and the other may be as large as the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the same screen size and diagonal.

Here are the approximate dimensions of future Apple tablets:

  • 11-inch iPad Pro (current): 247.6 mm x 178.5 mm x 5.9 mm
  • 11-inch iPad Pro (new): 249.7 mm x 177.5 mm x 5.1 mm
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (current): 280.6 mm x 214.9 mm x 6.4 mm
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (new): 281.5 mm x 215.5 mm x 5.0 mm
  • 12.9-inch iPad Air (new): 280.6 mm x 214.9 mm x 6.0 mm

In addition to updating OLED displays, Apple may apply MagSafe technology for the first time in the iPad Pro line.

The updated tablets are also likely to feature Apple’s new M3 chip, built on a 3nm architecture, potentially leading to improved performance and battery efficiency.

It is not yet known when exactly these new models will be presented, but according to some reports, the OLED iPad Pro may debut next month.
