iPhone models began offering MagSafe functionality back in 2020 with the launch of the iPhone 12 series. Now, Apple is expected to bring this wireless charging technology to its tablets. The Cupertino-based technology company will reportedly introduce the MagSafe standard on the next-generation iPad Pro model expected to launch in 2024. The 2024 iPad Pro is said to come in 11.1-inch and 13-inch screen sizes and could have glass back panels .
ONE report of MacRumors, citing a source “familiar with companies that make magnets for Apple products,” claims that the next-generation iPad Pro, set to launch in 2024, may offer MagSafe charging. This confirms Earlier claims made by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. Gurman previously claimed that Apple planned to swap the iPad Pro’s traditional metal back for a glass back to facilitate wireless charging.
Wireless charging does not work with metal panels, and with the introduction of MagSafe charging technology on future tablets, the iPad Pro may get a new design with glass or plastic panels. Therefore, they can also be more vulnerable to falls and injuries.
Apple is expected to deliver faster charging speeds with MagSafe on the iPad Pro. It could also allow for new wireless accessories and a common MagSafe charger compatible with both the iPhone and iPad. The iPad Pro 2024 model is expected to work with the 15W magnetic Qi2 wireless chargers.
In addition to charging upgrades, next year’s iPad Pro is expected to come with 11.1-inch and 13-inch OLED displays and a design overhaul. It is said to be powered by the new 3nm M3 chip. However, Apple has not revealed any details about the next iPad Pro yet. So all these details should be considered with a grain of salt.
