Apple Working on 11.1-Inch and 13-Inch OLED iPad Pro Models for 2024

Apple is developing 11.1-inch and 13-inch OLED iPad Pro models that will come out in the first quarter of 2024, display analyst Ross Young today confirmed to MacRumors.

Young has previously mentioned new OLED ‌iPad Pro‌ models planned for 2024, but this is the first time that we've heard about updated 11.1 and 13-inch display sizes. With larger 11.1 and 13-inch screen sizes planned for the OLED ‌iPad Pro‌ models, we could see slimmed down bezels rather than an overall change in the size of the device.

At the current time, Apple sells a 12.9-inch mini-LED ‌iPad Pro‌ and an 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ with a traditional LCD display, as mini-LED has continued to be reserved for the higher-end ‌iPad Pro‌ model. With the 2024 update, Apple could return to feature parity between the two ‌iPad Pro‌ models.

Apple refreshed the 11 and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ models in October 2022, adding the M2 chip, so it would not be a surprise not to see another update until 2024. It is not yet clear if there is an intermediate update coming ahead of the transition to OLED, but Apple does not have plans to release a mini-LED 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌, and will instead move directly to OLED for the smaller tablet.

Other sources like The Elec and DigiTimes have confirmed that Apple is developing OLED panels for larger devices like iPads and MacBook models, and the technology is expected to be ready in 2024.

Young previously said that Apple would introduce a 14.1-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ in 2023, but he walked that back today and said that such a device is no longer in the works. That said, larger iPads are still a future possibility, as The Information believes Apple is designing a 16-inch iPad and Bloomberg has confirmed Apple's interest in bigger iPads.

Imagine how much better browsing MacRumors on the toilet will be with a screen like that. Just wonderful.

14" iPad would have been ideal however 13" is acceptable. My fingers are crossed that they are released in 2023, not 2024.

This new display will be the one thing that makes me replace my otherwise perfect 2018 11” iPad Pro. Long overdue for the price Apple charges for these things.

I’d love this but also a little worried about burn in here. Phones are fine as you rarely have the same app open for long periods. There is a lot of switching.
But iPads, especially for power users will have the same few apps open for long periods of time. Should be interesting to see how Apple have dealt with this.

Honestly, an 11.1" OLED iPad Pro sounds like my dream personal computing device. If this is real, I can't wait to get a 1TB model and consolidate my iPad mini and 12.9" iPad Pro.

Oled is a absolutely upgrade for current Macbook Air, is easy to have 500 mites brightness and better display quality. But the question is would Oled be a upgrade for Mini-led display?
It would be a huge upgrade. I have zero interest in mini-LED iPad Pros. The black levels and blooming do not impress.
