Apple is rumored to be working on its next-generation iPad Pro models, which will succeed those released in 2022, and details about the upcoming tablets’ displays have surfaced online. The iPhone maker’s next 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models will come with bezels that are significantly thinner than their predecessors, according to details shared by tipster Instant Digital (translated from Chinese). The company is also expected to offer its iPad Pro models with an optional matte finish.

According to details shared by the tipster via Weibo, the successors to the 2022 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro will have 7.12mm and 7.08mm bezels, respectively. MacRumors points out that those bezels are 10 percent and 15 percent smaller than those of the company’s 2022 models. Those measurements are exclusive to the tablets’ flat aluminum edges, according to the leaker.

Readers may recall that Apple reduced the size of the bezels on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max that were introduced in September 2023, and a recent report suggests that this trend may continue with their successors.

In another post, Instant Digital claims that Apple is working on releasing its 2024 iPad Pro models in “glossy and matte screen versions.” The latter will have a “blur value” of 29 percent (+/- 4 percent), according to the tipster. It is currently unclear whether the alleged matte version will be priced higher than the glossy version.

Recent reports suggest that Apple plans to release new iPad Pro models equipped with OLED screens in the coming weeks. This means we can expect to see new iPad Pro models – presumably powered by Apple’s latest M3 chips – by the last week of March or early April. These models may be accompanied by a 2024 iPad Air model that runs on an M2 chip.
