14-Inch iPad Pro With Mini-LED Display Rumored to Launch in Early 2023

Apple is reportedly developing an iPad Pro with a 14.1-inch mini-LED display, according to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) analyst Ross Young.

On Twitter, Young claimed that this larger ‌iPad Pro‌ model will feature a mini-LED display and ProMotion like the current 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌:

The rumor was first shared yesterday by the hit-and-miss Twitter leaker known as "Majin Bu," who said that Apple is developing a 14.1-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ model with the M2 chip, configured with 512GB of storage and 16GB of memory as standard:

Majin Bu also mentioned other upcoming ‌iPad Pro‌ models, saying that "no major changes" are expected for the 11-inch model, while the 12.9-inch model may feature slimmer bezels around the display. As mentioned by Majin Bu, new iPadOS 16 features such as Stage Manager and Display Zoom suggest that there is a clearer use case for an ‌‌iPad Pro‌‌ with an even larger display.

Young now seems to have supported Majin Bu's rumor about the existence of a 14.1-inch ‌iPad Pro‌. Young has revealed a wide range of accurate insights into Apple's plans, such as the iPhone 13 Pro's ProMotion display, the display size and bezels of the sixth-generation iPad mini, the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro's mini-LED displays with ProMotion, the ‌M2‌ MacBook Air's display size, and more, so his comments are worth taking seriously.

While Majin Bu suggested that new ‌iPad Pro‌ models could be unveiled at an Apple event in October or November this year, Young was unsure of launch timing, saying that early 2023 "may be more likely."

The first report about even larger ‌iPad Pro‌ models came from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman last year. In the first edition of his "Power On" newsletter, Gurman said Apple was exploring iPads with larger displays:

I'm told that Apple has engineers and designers exploring larger iPads that could hit stores a couple of years down the road at the earliest. They're unlikely for next year—with Apple's attention on a redesigned iPad Pro in the current sizes for 2022—and it's possible they never come at all. But a big iPad would be the perfect device for many people, including me, and would continue to blur the lines between tablet and laptop.

The latest rumor about a 14.1-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ from Majin Bu and Young, in addition to Gurman's previous comments, suggest that an even larger ‌iPad Pro‌ model is more likely to emerge than previously thought and could arrive sooner rather than later. More immediately, Apple is expected to launch new ‌iPad Pro‌ models with wireless charging.

I'm sure this means iPadOS will become multi-user, because you'll need at least two people to carry this thing around.

Unless it comes with Finder or a Finder like easy to navigate filesystem, what exactly is the point?
Not everyone uses an iPad to sit in Finder. I use mine everyday for sketches with the Apple Pencil. I would really enjoy having a larger screen.

Wow! A massive iPad Display. I will instantly buy this. Guess I won't be buying a new iPad Pro this year. Thanks, Mr. Young.
