Apple is eager to satisfy the anticipation surrounding the refresh of its iPad tablets a week from now, which supposedly includes the OLED iPad Pro. While it was long believed the lineup will be equipped with an M3 chipset, a last-minute report suggests it could arrive with Apple's newer M4 chip which will enable many generative AI features.

First Apple machines running on the M4 chipset

In the latest weekend Power On newsletter of Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the Apple leaker sharply shifting his prediction about the upcoming iPad Pro running on the M3 SoC. Rather, he mentioned the chances of the two iPad Pro models fitted with an M4 chip has increased.

Gurman backed this likelihood by explaining how Apple wants to position the OLED iPad Pro as AI-heavy devices and to debut “fresh AI features” via the M4 chip packed with an upgraded Neural Engine. It added this suite of AI functions will be announced at Apple's WWDC conference in June and will only be included in the iPadOS 18 update later this year.

Apart from iPads, Gurman reported last week that the custom M4 chip will also find its way to the Mac and Mac Mini desktop computers sometime in the fall. Based on what we know, it now appears the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops will also receive the AI-powered chipset.

What else will Apple launch next week?

In the same newsletter, the journalist reiterated the OLED iPad Pro will be joined by the new iPad Air duo, next-generation Apple Pencil, and Magic Keyboard at Apple's Let Loose event. He also detailed how the Pencil 3 will gain haptic-based features which aligns with the previous leak indicating “squeeze” gestures and Find My Device tracking.

In addition to the new processor and OLED screen, the 2024 iPad Pro tablets are tipped to gain slightly larger displays with radically reduced bezels alongside a repositioned FaceTime camera. Meanwhile, the 2024 iPad Air is said to be introduced in two sizes, with the inclusion of a 12.9-inch model.

With these expected changes and upgrades, do you think the OLED iPad Pro becomes more interesting? Will this convince you to buy it? Let us know your answers in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
