Apple is preparing to launch new iPad Pro and iPad Air models this year after skipping a revamp of its tablet lineup for 2023. The new iPad Air runs on Apple’s own M2 chip, while the higher-end iPad Pro uses the M3 chip that powers the latest MacBook Pro models. Now, a new report has revealed the overall dimensions of the upcoming iPad Air and iPad Pro models.

It was previously reported that the new iPad Air and iPad Pro models would come in two display sizes. It is reported that the iPad Air will be released for the first time as a new 12.9-inch model along with the regular 10.9-inch model. According to a report by 9to5Mac, the 12.9-inch iPad Air will likely boast the same size as the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Citing sources familiar with the development, the report claims that the larger iPad Air will be identical to the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro, except that it will be slightly thinner, measuring 280.6mm x 214.9mm x 6.0mm.

On the other hand, the new iPad Pro model is said to have slightly increased in size and become thinner. The report states that the iPad Pro will be thinner due to the Pro variant tablet’s new OLED display, which has fewer layers than an LCD display. The new 11-inch iPad Pro will reportedly measure 249.7mm x 177.5mm x 5.1mm, compared to 247.6mm x 178.5mm x 5.9mm for the existing 11-inch model. The larger 12.9-inch model measures 281.5mm x 215.5mm x 5.0mm, making it 1.4mm thinner than its predecessor.

Please keep in mind that these dimensions are only estimates and the final product may vary. Apple has yet to confirm the new iPad models, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the refreshed iPad Air and iPad Pro lineup could launch by March.

Additionally, the iPad Pro models are likely to be the first Apple tablets to feature OLED displays, which offer better contrast and black levels compared to mini LED screens. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said last year that the new iPad Pro tablet would likely ditch the mini-LED display in favor of an OLED screen.

Last month, computer-aided design (CAD) renderings of what was believed to be a 2.9-inch iPad Air surfaced online, hinting at the design and form factor of the upcoming tablet. The renders suggest a slight redesign of the camera unit, a thinner body, and a USB Type-C port for charging.
