In 2022, Apple plans to debut a new iPad Pro generation. Following the launch of the M1 chip, miniLED display, and 5G compatibility in 2021, Apple is expected to release an even better iPad Pro with the M2 chip this year.
In June 2021, rumours of a new design for the iPad Pro 2022 began to circulate. This iPad, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, may include a glass back to allow wireless charging, most likely via MagSafe. The journalist then confirmed his previous findings in December.
In January 2022, discovered that Apple’s plans to upgrade the iPad Pro with MagSafe had encountered a snag. While the business was testing a full glass back on the iPad Pro 2022, it became a disadvantage because it would make the device more vulnerable to harm.
Apple is expected to keep two alternative display sizes: 11-inch and 12.9-inch. Despite rumours that the 11-inch iPad would use a miniLED display instead of an LCD panel, analysts Ross Young and Ming-Chi Kuo recently stated that Apple will preserve the LCD technology for the smaller iPad due to high production costs.
Following Apple’s surprise addition of the M1 chip to the iPad Pro, an updated version of this technology is likely to be included in the future 2022 iPad Pro. Naturally, the M2 chip would be used in this iPad, which is expected to be unveiled alongside a revamped MacBook Air. This new chip will be included in the upcoming iPad, according to sources. It should outperform the M1 processor, but not the M1 Pro, Max, or Ultra processors.
For its storage capabilities, it’s likely that Apple will maintain the same options, as there are no rumors regarding more than 2TB of storage, which means:
Because Apple has been moving away from 64GB iPhone models and all new Macs start at 256GB, it would make sense if the 2022 iPad Pro came with 256GB of storage rather than 128GB. Apple is working on a new iPad Pro with a larger battery, according to, as some users complain that the Magic Keyboard causes significant battery consumption.
Not only that but as previously mentioned in this roundup, Apple is expected to release a MagSafe charger for the 2022 iPad Pro that is faster than the one available for the iPhone. Although no details on the 5G capabilities of the 2022 iPad Pro have surfaced, it’s possible that Apple will add more bands to the future model.
There are also no speculations about new accessories, although given that Apple plans to incorporate a MagSafe connector for charging the iPad Pro, the Smart Folio and Magic Keyboard may be updated.
According to, the new iPad will be released in the second half of this year, around the same time as Apple is expected to debut a revised MacBook Air. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicted in his Power On newsletter at the end of March that Apple would release the new iPad Pro between September and November.
Due to the adoption of the miniLED display, the price of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in 2021 has increased by $100. Apple is unlikely to adjust the pricing of the Pro iPads, according to, owing to the fact that the 11-inch model will not get miniLED.
