Bloomberg’s Apple reporter, Mark Gurman, says Apple has some big changes coming for 2024 in the form of a bigger iPad Air joining the existing smaller size and the previously rumored iPad Pro with an OLED screen. In addition to that, the company will release an updated MacBook Air using Apple’s new M3 processor that just debuted in the updated 14-inch MacBook Pro and new iMacs.

The new iPad Air will reportedly have a 12.9-inch screen to join the 10.9-inch model, bringing the lineup much closer to the iPad Pro’s 11- and 12.9-inch options. Gurman didn’t provide a specific date, only saying the devices will arrive in “early 2024,” adding that Apple hopes to turn things around for sales of both product lines.

The company will also release a new version of the Apple Pencil, Gurman writes. He says the Pencil will be the third generation of the mainline Pencil device, so it would probably be similar to the one the company released five years ago. Most recently, Apple updated the Pencil lineup with the more budget-friendly — but incompatible with its cheapest iPad — Apple Pencil with USB-C. The company is also expected to release new iPad Magic Keyboards.

Gurman has said in the past that the new iPad Pro coming in 2024 would represent the first major redesign for the tablet since 2018, the year Apple debuted the new flat-sided design language that finally trickled down to the 10th-generation iPad last year.

This year, the company released iPhone 15 series phones that were slightly redesigned to include rounder edges. The Pro models have titanium sides and thinner bezels that shrank the phones’ outer dimensions rather than growing the screens, and it seems likely the new iPads will get at least some of the same design cues. The company is also expected to release its highly anticipated Vision Pro headset in 2024.
