An OLED iPad Pro and the first big-screen iPad Air will reportedly arrive in May

<p>Apple will finally launch new iPads in early May, <a data-i13n="elm:context_link;elmt:doNotAffiliate;cpos:1;pos:1" class="no-affiliate-link" href="" data-original-link="">according to[/url] Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. Expected are a new iPad Pro with an OLED display and a faster iPad Air, including a 12.9-inch model for the first time in that lineup. The details of the upcoming iPad models have been consistent, circulating through the rumor mill <a data-i13n="cpos:2;pos:1" href="">since last year[/url].</p>
<p>The new iPad Pro models will reportedly add OLED displays (offering <a data-i13n="cpos:3;pos:1" href="">deeper blacks and richer colors[/url]) and run on the new M3 chip, already <a data-i13n="cpos:4;pos:1" href="">found in several Macs[/url]. The new tablets are said to launch alongside a redesigned Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard. Other than a white color option, the latter has remained unchanged since its arrival four years ago.</p>
<span id="end-legacy-contents"></span><p>Meanwhile, the iPad Air will supposedly run on a new processor. Bloomberg didn’t specify which, but — considering the <a data-i13n="cpos:5;pos:1" href="">current model uses the M1[/url], and Apple likely wants to reserve the M3 for the more expensive Pro —&nbsp;the M2 sounds like a safe bet. The 12.9-inch screen option would mark the first time the iPad Air line has offered a display larger than 10.9 inches. Although Apple will charge more for that model than the smaller sibling expected alongside it, that would be the cheapest way yet to get a supersized iPad screen.</p>
<p>Gurman said early this month that the new tablets would launch alongside the <a data-i13n="cpos:6;pos:1" href="">M3 MacBook Air[/url], but the <a data-i13n="cpos:7;pos:1" href="">laptop arrived without any iPads[/url] in tow. He now reports that Apple’s release schedule was pushed back to finish working on the devices’ software and ironing out the kinks from the “complex new manufacturing techniques” they require.</p>This article originally appeared on Engadget at
