It is expected that Apple will refresh its iPad Pro with multiple upgrades in 2024. In a shift from Liquid Retina XDR displays to OLED screens, the company could introduce iPads with OLED screens.
According to a new tip online, the next iPad Pro may be able to charge via MagSafe wireless charging. MagSafe compatibility for iPads has been tested by Apple since 2021, and we may finally see it on the next iPad Pro.
The upcoming iPad Pro might support MagSafe wireless charging, according to Macrumors. The tip comes from a source that manufactures magnets for Apple products.
Apple may have difficulty bringing MagSafe to iPads. To enable wireless charging, the company will have to switch from aluminum to glass back panels. Due to iPads’ larger footprint, a large glass back could lead to cracks and damage from falls.
The iPad must also be held firmly in place by stronger magnets on Apple’s MagSafe pad. If Apple decides to introduce MagSafe on iPads, it will be interesting to see how it overcomes these hurdles.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple was testing MagSafe for iPads in 2021. The iPad Pro of 2022, however, did not feature MagSafe or wireless charging. With Apple currently on a streak of updating all of its devices, the upcoming iPad Pro seems a prime candidate for the upgrade.
