iPad Air will not get mini LED (but there will be a secret iPad in 2024)

The iPad Air 2024 will be released soon, but unfortunately will not have a mini-LED screen. There will be a ‘secret’ iPad this year. This is what you can expect!

iPad Air will not get mini LED

We don’t have to wait much longer for the iPad Air 2024, because Apple has announced a new iPad event. On May 7 at 4:00 PM Dutch time, Apple presents the new tablets. Both the iPad Pro and the iPad Air will then appear. It is already clear that Apple is switching to OLED screens for the first time with the iPad Pro. According to rumors, the iPad Air would take over the mini-LED screen of the iPad Pro 2022.

The iPad Air will appear for the first time this year in a 10.9 and 12.9-inch version. Apple already used a mini-LED display on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, so the iPad Air could easily take over the screen. Previous rumors therefore predicted that the iPad Air would get the new screen technology, but according to Apple expert Ross Young, this is not correct.

Secret iPad in 2024

We therefore see an LCD screen again on the iPad Air, in both the small and large versions. Young is an expert in the field of displays and has made correct predictions before. It is therefore likely that Apple will wait for the mini-LED screens for the iPad Air. However, that won’t have to last long, according to Young, because Apple still has a secret iPad planned.

This secret iPad is expected in the last quarter of 2024. According to Young, it is a 12.9-inch iPad, so there is a good chance that the iPad Air will still have a mini-LED screen. A new version of the iPad Air will probably be released in the autumn, in addition to the new ‘normal’ iPad and the iPad mini 7. Apple will therefore probably release no fewer than five new generations of the iPad in 2024.
