OLED iPad Pro to See a Major Price Hike With High-End Variant Costing as Much as The M3 Pro MacBook Pro

Apple has just announced that it will launch the Vision Pro headset on February 2, with pre-orders going live a week later. While the Vision Pro is Apple’s one of the most hyped products, we are also expecting the company to announce its long-rumored iPad Pro with an OLED display. With significant changes coming with the OLED iPad Pro, the devices are expected to feature a major price hike, costing as much as the M3 Pro MacBook Pro.

Apple will launch the new OLED iPad Pro models at a hefty price tag that makes the current models look appealing

The new iPad Pro models are slated to undergo various changes, including display size and internals. Compared to the current models, the redesigned chassis could allow slimmer bezels. According to the account.”yeux1122” on the Naver blog. The OLED iPad Pro could start from $1,500 and go up to $2,000, depending on the size and configuration of the device. This is more than twice the price of the current iPad Pro models.

While we are still skeptical about the price, the new changes will direct the price to go much higher than the current models. This is the second time the source has quoted a similar price for the OLED iPad Pro models. The Elec previously reported that the 11-inch model will start from $1,500, and the bigger 13-inch model will start from $1,800. If the latest report has any heft, the bigger 13-inch OLED iPad Pro with maxed-out configuration could cost as much as a Space Black M3 Pro MacBook Pro, which Apple launched last year.

The higher price tag could be due to the rising manufacturing and materials costs. The OLED display is significantly more expensive than LCD panels. The iPad Pro will also feature the new M3 chip, which costs Apple more than last-gen chips as it will be fabricated on TSMC’s 3nm architecture. While the prices are expected to rise, the latest report also mentions that Apple will compensate for the higher price with increased storage capacity for the base model and a new design.

It was recently rumored that the forthcoming iPad Pro models could also feature MagSafe technology for charging purposes. Lastly, the iPad Pro’s OLED display is one of the most significant changes. The new panel is significantly better than the mini-LED display of the 12.9-inch model, offering deeper blacks, a higher contrast ratio, and low power consumption. These changes could increase the price of the OLED iPad Pro models. The company is expected to launch the new models in the next few months, so stick around for more details.
