Apple would prepare new iPad Pro 11 and 12.9 inches for the start of the school year. Powered by the new M2 chip and compatible with wireless charging, these two models would arrive a few months before a brand new model sporting a new 14.1-inch format.
Apple would intend to multiply the new iPad Pro over the next few months. This is what we learn from MacRumors, which echoes the predictions of Mark Gurman. Often well informed about Apple’s projects, the journalist from Bloomberg estimates that the Californian giant would prepare new 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pros for September or October – the period traditionally reserved for these devices.
The two slates would be equipped this year with the new M2 chip, unveiled last week at WWDC. They would also have a wireless charging system and new features specific to the cameras.
Towards larger and more powerful iPad Pros?
According to leaker Majin Bu, deemed less reliable than the two media, the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro would benefit from a slightly redesigned design to sport thinner borders around the screen. Information that is not corroborated by other sources at this time. The interested party, on the other hand, goes in the same direction as Ross Young (from the firm DSCC, Display Supply Chain Consultants), to predict the imminent arrival of a brand new model of iPad Pro equipped with a giant slab of 14.1 inches.
This XXL model would be expected for its part in early 2023 on the market, with a Mini-LED screen, explained a few days ago Ross Young, known to regularly see just display issues. This 14.1-inch iPad Pro would compete head-on with Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. As a reminder, the latter has an even larger OLED panel, with a diagonal of 14.6 inches.
According to my resource, Apple is developing a new 14.1-inch iPad M2 with 512GB and 16GB of base memory. The new M2 line is expected to include a new 11-inch model with no major changes, a new 12.9 model with reduced bezels and this new 14.1 iPad

Note that Mark Gurman had also mentioned, as early as last year, the arrival at Apple of an iPad Pro with a larger diagonal than the current models for “continue to blur the lines between tablet and laptop“. The journalist also suggested, however, that this model would not materialize before 2023. In the meantime, Apple would therefore prefer to keep us busy with iPad Pros close to the current models, but simply better equipped.
