As we draw closer to the potential launch date of the OLED iPad Pro which is expected to arrive as early as March, more information has surfaced and continues to shed light on the new premium Apple iPad tablets. It seems the alleged dimensions of the two iPad Pro (2024) models have leaked, revealing a drastically thinner build than their predecessors.

The new Apple iPad Pro (2024) is significantly thinner

If 9to5Mac's sources are to be believed, the dimensions of the OLED iPad Pro will slightly differ from the current iPad Pro (review) tablets, with the most noticeable change seen in its thickness. According to the leaked details, the upcoming larger iPad Pro measures 281.5 × 215.5 × 5.0 mm compared to its older counterpart at 280.6 × 214.9 × 6.4 mm.

On that note, it appears the OLED iPad Pro will be taller and wider by a whisker, which corroborates with the fact that it features a slightly larger display at 13-inches from 12.9-inches. However, the thickness is reduced notably by around 21 percent.

As for the 11-inch OLED iPad Pro, it is said to measure 249.7 × 177.5 × 5.1 mm and appears to be not only taller but narrower and also thinner than the existing iPad Pro that measures 247.6 × 178.5 × 5.9 mm. Based on the rumor, the 11-inch OLED model is also said to bring a slightly wider screen so that does indicate the increased height will also make up for the added screen estate.

Among the immediate advantages of OLED screens over LCD are having thinner and flexible panels, subsequently resulting in the OLED devices having a slimmer build, which is the case of the upcoming iPad Pro. In addition, an OLED display should deliver more efficient power consumption, punchier colors, and deeper blacks. However, it's unknown if these iPad Pro tablets will also be lighter.

Apple iPad Air 12.9-inch dimensions

Apart from the OLED iPad Pro, the publication also revealed the dimensions of the 12.9-inch iPad Air at 80.6 × 214.9 × 6.0 mm. Based on that, the enlarged iPad Air shares dimensions with the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro apart from its thickness.

Based on Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple should announce the two OLED iPad Pro models and two iPad Air models sometime between March and April this year. All new iPads will be equipped with Apple's M3 chipset that first debuted on the MacBook Pro last year.

Do you think these iPad Pro upgrades will also make the new tablets more expensive? Let us know your thoughts on this matter.

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.
