What you need to know
- A leak this week claimed Apple was working on a 14-inch iPad Pro with M2.
- A very reliable second source now says this is indeed true.
- Ross Young says it will have Mini-LED and ProMotion, and is more likely to come in early 2023.
A second and more reliable source has backed up reports from earlier this week claiming a new 14-inch iPad Pro is on the way.
DSCC's Ross Young took to Twitter stating:
The news follows a leak earlier this week, from Wednesday:
The first leak further indicated that Apple is planning to add its new M2 Apple silicon chip to iPad, and that it will refresh the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models too.
The first rumor came from a source that has proven reliable in the past but has a more limited track record. Conversely, Ross Young ranks at the very top of Apple sources in 2022 in terms of accuracy, accurately leaking details about the MacBook Pro (2021), iPad mini 6, and the iPhone SE as well as the iPhone 13.
Young says the new iPad Pro 14-inch will have a ProMotion 120Hz display and mini-LED, just like the current M1 iPad Pro (2021). If Apple is indeed planning to unveil a new larger tablet it could be one of the best iPad upgrades we've ever seen.

Wonder what a 14" iPad is going to cost, compared to a 13" MacBook Air. Consider you will likely add a keyboard and pen to that iPad. I know they are different, but that is going to create tough decisions for some.
