According to Bloomberg reporter and Apple-related leaker Mark Gurman, Apple plans to release an iPad Pro with an OLED display in early May 2024. Apple also plans to add a 12.9-inch display model to the iPad Air, which was previously only available on the iPad Pro.

According to information obtained by Mr. Gurman from an anonymous source, the new iPad Pro planned by Apple will be equipped with the M3 chip announced by the company in October 2023, and a new Magic Keyboard with a larger trackpad will also be released as a dedicated accessory. The M3 chip is the first chip in the M series manufactured using the 3nm process, and is equipped with a next-generation GPU that supports dynamic caching, so only the amount of memory required for the task is dynamically allocated, dramatically increasing the average utilization rate of the GPU and improving the performance of high-load applications.

Apple also plans to update its mid-range iPad Air model, with the new iPad Air being equipped with the M2 chip announced in 2022 and available in both a standard 10.9-inch and a previously unseen 12.9-inch display size.

At the time of writing, the latest iPad Pro model is the M2-equipped model released in October 2022. This means that a new iPad Pro model has not been released for about a year and a half.

At the time of writing, the latest model of iPad Air is the 5th generation iPad Air announced in March 2022. This means that no new iPad Air models have been announced for more than two full years.

According to Bloomberg, Apple was originally scheduled to release the new iPad Pro and iPad Air between the end of March and April 2024. However, due to delays in the completion of dedicated software, the release has been pushed back to May. As a result, the new iPad Pro and iPad Air will be released just before the opening of WWDC24, Apple's annual developer conference scheduled to be held in June 2024.
