Apple's 2022 iPad Pro: What to Expect

By  Hemaja Burud           February 17, 2022

Apple is working on the next-generation iPad Pro, and while there are no major design changes that we are aware of, there are some new features that are worth anticipating.

Mini-LED Display

In 2022, the iPad Pro Mini LED display will be added to 11- and 12.9-inch tablets. The current display has 10,000 LEDs across the back of the tablet, with 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness, 1,600 nits of peak brightness, and a contrast ratio of 1 million-to-1.

M2 Chip

The same M1 chip was used in iPad Pro models in 2021 and 2022 as it is in current iPads. In 2022, Apple is expected to release a new chip, the M2. It will have faster and more energy efficient 9 to 10-core processors.

MagSafe Charging

MagSafe wireless charging may be supported by the iPad Pro. Apple is developing iPads with stronger magnets than those found in iPhones. this would allow for faster wireless charging speeds and eliminate the need for a special glass back to display the Apple logo.

Reverse Wireless Charging

Apple has announced that the iPad may support reverse wireless charging. The technology could be used to charge iPhones, AirPods, and other accessories while the iPad Pro's tablet-sized screen is still attached to the back.

A New Apple Pencil

Apple could be working on a black and white Apple Pencil. Rumors first surfaced in 2021, but it's unclear whether this year's Apple Watch will be available in black or white.

Titanium Chassis

According to reports from Apple watchers DigiTimes and 9to9 MacRumors, Apple is working on a titanium chassis for the 'iPad,' but it's unclear whether this will be available to all users or just the top-end model.

Future iPad Pros

In the coming years, Apple may include an OLED display in its iPads and Macs. The company is also working on larger-screen iPad Pro displays than 12.9 inches, but those devices aren't expected until 2023 or 2024.
