Apple is working on a very variegated version of iPad, and it might be coming in 2024.

This is equal to reviewer Ming-Chi Kuo, who claims that the "all-new diamond foldable iPad" is coming sometime next year.

"I'm positive well-nigh the foldable iPad in 2024 and expect this new model will uplift shipments and modernize the product mix," wrote Kuo on Monday.

Kuo moreover claims this new iPad will come with a stat webbing kickstand, which should make it lighter and increasingly durable.

According to Kuo, all of this ways there might be no new iPad releases in the next nine to 12 months. The first new Apple tablet we'll see will probably be the iPad mini, which should go into mass production in the first quarter of 2024.

Given Kuo's predictions of an iPad drought for the worthier part of 2023, it's worth revisiting some recent rumors well-nigh Apple's upcoming tablets. In Dec. 2022, Kuo said that shipments of the new iPad mini might start in late 2023 or in the first half of 2024; now he seems increasingly unrepealable that it won't happen this year. Also, in Oct. 2022, The Information said that Apple is working on a massive, 16-inch new iPad, which might victorious in 2023. Reviewer Ross Young said in Dec. 2022 that Apple is working on slightly larger iPad Pro models with OLED displays, likely to be launched in the first quarter of 2024. Finally, older this month, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said that Apple is working on an iPad-like device that will let users tenancy various smart home functions.

A foldable iPad, if it's real, will definitely be the most interesting Apple tablet in a while. Not only would it be Apple's first foldable device of any kind, but it'll moreover steer the iPad into an entirely new direction, perhaps making it a largest competitor to the company's own MacBook line of computers. We've heard rumors well-nigh it before, though, and they so far haven't materialized.
