Often very well informed about Apple’s projects, Ross Young, president of Display Supply Chain, is banking on a new iPad Pro with a screen diagonal of… 14.1 inches.
Apple seems to want to beef up its iPad Pro offer with a new model with an unprecedented screen size. These elements are to the credit of Ross Young (via Twitter), president of Display Supply Chain and specialist in the screen industry, whose information is generally correct as to the intentions of the firm at the apple.
According to him, the next iPad Pro would be entitled to a new version equipped with a 14.1-inch screen. This model would invite itself alongside the 11 and 12.9-inch models, but would also and above all compete with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and its 14.6-inch screen. We had also tested it, for a very satisfactory result.
Still according to Ross Young, this version would benefit from MiniLed, coupled with ProMotion technology for the first time introduced on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max in 2021. As a reminder, this technology corresponds neither more nor less to a refresh rate of 120 Hz which brings a pleasant feeling of fluidity to use.
In the idea, this 14.1-inch iPad Pro could land in early 2023. Based on this commercial scheme, Apple would logically take advantage of its big annual keynote in September to introduce the device to the general public and professionals. We can also think that the M2 chip, recently presented at WWDC, will be there.
Prices that would soar
Ross Young comes here to support the predictions of a leaker answering to the name of Majin Bu, who, the day before, shared this same type of information. The interested party even mentions thinner borders expected on the 12.9-inch model.
If no price estimate has filtered, expect all the same a very high price to afford such a device. At present, the iPad Pro 11 and 12.9 inches are respectively sold 899 and 1219 euros, in their minimum configuration (128 GB of storage). The Pro version could therefore easily cross the threshold of 1500 euros.
