The media reported that Apple’s upcoming OLED iPad Pro will cost as much as the MacBook Pro. The tech giant’s new iPad Pro models with OLED screens, expected to be released next year, will cost up to 80 percent more than the current release, according to a new supply chain report, AppleInsider reports.
Specifically, it is rumored that the 11-inch iPad Pro with OLED display will cost 80 percent more than the current model and will start at around $1,500. On the other hand, the 12.9-inch version will be 60 percent more expensive and will start at $1,800.
Meanwhile, last month, it was reported that the tech giant had ordered OLED panels from LG Display and Samsung for its upcoming iPad Pro model, which is expected to launch next year.
Apple is planning to launch a new slate of Mac computers, including a new iMac, a new Mac Pro, and new MacBook Air models. According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple will launch at least two MacBook Air models. According to the report, the 13-inch MacBook Air will get an upgrade, making it the first 15-inch model in the MacBook Air series.
In his Power On newsletter, Gurman said that Apple will upgrade the MacBook Air series with the new model, but that specifics like the chip are “a little less clear” at the moment. Speculations are rife that the all-new 15-inch MacBook Air may feature the older M2 chip, while the 13-inch MacBook Air may feature Apple’s next M3 chip.
That’s because the 15-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip will get some attention from customers, but the 13-inch MacBook Air with the M2 chip won’t, given that it’s already available. So using a newer chipset on the 13-inch MacBook Air would be a laudable strategy. The report suggests that it could be the M3 chip.
