Apple’s WWDC 2023 developer conference is one of the key dates in the release calendar of those of Cupertino and the news in software usually come together with the launch of a product such as the iPad Pro or a MacBook model.
For this reason, it is usual that during these previous weeks rumors about launches and the development of new products are triggered of the mark of the bitten apple. One of the most anticipated is the next iPad Pro.
The next generation of iPad is expected to be the first to mount an AMOLED screen and will arrive next year in the form of iPad Pro (2024)as advanced on his Twitter profile ShrimpApplePro, one of the most reputable leakers.
According to this source, Apple would be working with up to four prototypes in development, and also noted that the screen sizes would be 11 and 13 inches (12.9 inches).
ShrimpApple Pro has more news to add on this topic as his tweet says that OLED panels would not be the same as those used in the iPhonewhich would take the iPad screen a step further, reaching the level of what is expected in a screen designed for professionals.
Samsung is believed to be producing dual-stacked OLED panels for the 2024 iPad Pro, in which two layers of self-emissive pixels are usedinstead of just one as usual.
These layers of organic pixels make each pixel shine on its own, eliminating the need to backlight the screen as is the case with today’s LCD and mini LED screens, doubling the brightness of the screen while allowing you to magnify up to four times the screen life relative to that of an OLED panel with only one emission layer.
This double layer process is more expensive than usualand due to the higher production cost of these screens, the 2024 iPad Pro model prices They could increase up to 80% more than the previous generation, something that is added to the upward price policy due to inflation and the shortage of components that the mobile phone market and technology in general are suffering.
He iPad Pro 11-inch (2024) could have a starting price of $1,500, while the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2024) It could start from a base price of above 1,800 euros or more. For such a huge jump in price for the two tablets, these displays must be simply amazing.
The current model of 11-inch iPad Pro uses a Liquid Retina LCD display, while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro uses Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED technology, using smaller LEDs, but with more dimming zones to backlight the display, offering deeper blacks, more vivid colors and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.
