iPad Air is going jumbo

Other iPads also will get major upgrades soon.

For the first time in years, Apple didn’t update the iPad lineup in 2023. That’s right — Apple’s tablets haven’t been upgraded in more than a year.

But fear not: A bumper batch of updates is coming in spring 2024.

Apple will release several new M3 iPads, including the first iPad Air with a 12.9-inch screen and the first iPad Pro with an OLED screen.

In fact, the new, big-screen iPad Air will be the cheaper alternative to the 13-inch OLED iPad, which will likely be pricey due to the new screen technology. The similarly sized iPad Air will be the more-affordable alternative for users looking for a jumbo-screen iPad.

Other products are planned, too. Details here.
