Citing a reliable low-profile source, AppleInsider reports 15 Apple’s 2024 iPad chip plan encompassing the iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, and the new OLED iPad Pro.

Regular iPad: Two new models will retain the 2020 A14 Bionic chip, potentially featuring refreshed internals and targeting the education market.

iPad mini: Two variants will receive an upgrade to the A17 Pro chip, currently powering the iPhone 15 Pro models.

iPad Air and OLED iPad Pro: Confirming our previous report, the leak aligns with analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s prediction of a 12.9-inch iPad Air and OLED iPad Pro.

The iPad Air will see a performance boost with the 5-nanometer M2 chip, an upgrade from the M1 used in the 2022 iPad Pro lineup.

The 2024 iPad Pro marks a first with its OLED display and the powerful M3 chip built on a 3-nanometer process.

For the iPhone 16 lineup, reports suggest the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus will use the A18 Bionic chip, while the Pro models (iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max) will sport the A18 Pro chip.

Both are 3-nanometer class from TSMC, but MacRumors 14 (citing the same leaker) claims the Pro models will have fully functional chips, while the non-Pro models might use “binned” versions with fewer cores.

The iPad Pro and iPad Air refreshes are expected this March. The iPad mini’s release schedule remains unclear. And the iPhone 16 Series remains on track for September release.

JM's highest stat is probably his curious ardor to anything tech—electronics and gaming in particular. He certainly heeds utmost regard to specsheet, visuals, and rule of thirds. If creativity and wit sometimes leave JM's system, watching films, anime and a good stroll for memes are his approved therapeutic claims.
