New iPad Pro and MacBook Air models said to have begun mass production in time for late March launch

Mass production for the upcoming OLED iPad Pro and M3 Macbook Air models is said to be underway in preparation for launch around late March, Bloomberg reports.

The development is shared in the latest Power On newsletter edition where it’s revealed that mass production for the OLED iPad Pro and 13-inch MacBook Air with the M3 chip has kicked off. These new devices should make their way to the hands of consumers by late March, alongside other devices like a new iPad Air lineup and a larger 15-inch MacBook Air with the M3.

The overhauled iPad Pro lineup will feature an OLED display for the first time in the tablet’s history and will come with other features like a new design, the M3 chip, and a potential landscape orientation for the TrueDepth camera system including Face ID and the front-facing camera. Apple is also working on updated accessories like a new Apple Pencil with support for the Find My network and a new Magic Keyboard that would make the iPad look more laptop-like when docked.

The current iPad Air will likely receive the M2 chip and will be joined with a larger 12.9-inch model as the largest iPad Air size yet. Both tablets will maintain the current design, save for a redesigned camera housing with a more prominent protrusion and potentially new colors. The new iPad Air models will continue to use LCD panels.

Both sizes of the MacBook Air are expected to be upgraded simultaneously this year, unlike the current generation which was released one year apart. The new laptops will likely receive the M3 chip like the current Macbook Pro lineup and iMac but not much else.

Search

Affiliate links are a popular way for websites to make money, but they can also be annoying to readers. They can obstruct content, trick visitors, and even be scams.

Supercharged is committed to respecting your time, sanity, and convenience. That’s why we’re doing affiliate linking differently.

You Control What You See

Have you ever felt like you're bombarded with affiliate links and ads constantly? We understand how overwhelming that can be, which is why we want to give you some control with the option to expand the affiliate options that you find interesting.

We're Strict

We have a strict policy of showing you a maximum of five brands or products at once. It's simple: if we wouldn't buy it ourselves, we won't recommend it to you.

No Tracking or Creepy Cookies

For all of our affiliates, we work directly with the companies to offer discounts and deals for you. We do not use third-party affiliate managers, trackers, or platforms like Amazon, so you can be confident that you won't have to deal with tracking.
