Apple is notorious for releasing “expensive” devices but its market remains strong. Apple fanboys may lament that the device is too expensive but trust me, once the device hit the market, they will buy one. For this and other reasons, Apple has not slowed down when it comes to the price increase. Apple intends to offer an OLED iPad Pro in 2024, according to MacRumors. The report also reveals that the next iPad Pro will become far more expensive than the MacBook Pro. The iPad Pro 2024 comes in two sizes, 11 and 13 inches, as noted in the report. For their price, the 11-inch model will start at $1500 while the 13-inch model will start at about $1,800.

iPad Pro 2024 succinct details
The iPad Pro’s OLED display has a relatively high cost, which is the cause of the price hike. This display is an OLED panel with a double-layer tandem structure that has two light-emitting layers. Overall, the screen brightness of the double-layer structure panel is greater than that of a single-layer OLED panel. It can be doubled in size, and its service life can be quadrupled.
Also, this screen makes use of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistors, which can save power usage by 5% to 10%. The price is incredibly high because the production process must incorporate additional precision metal masks (FMM). According to reports, Samsung and LG are the suppliers of the OLED panels used in the new iPad Pro.
Rumour has it that 2024 will be a very exciting year for Apple fans. According to several market analysts, Apple would launch its foldable iPad that year. Although the company is working with LG and Samsung to create a 20.25-inch folding display, current reports point to a sizable foldable display. The company is also working on new iPad Pro models with OLED panels for 2024.
