According to new reports, Apple is preparing to release a larger iPad without two major display features that it offers with the current iPad Pro 12.9. Instead, the 14.1-inch iPad would appear to be more like a larger iPad Air than a third iPad Pro.

Ross Young has revised his predictions for Apple's rumoured 14-inch iPad Pro. While the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants initially claimed that the tablet would be a larger version of the iPad Pro 12.9, he has since rowed back on his earlier tweets.

Subsequently, Young has informed his followers that the 14.1-inch iPad will dispense with Mini LED backlights, found in the iPad Pro 12.9, MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16. Also, Young believes that the 14.1-inch iPad lacks ProMotion support, its 120 Hz refresh rate solution that it also extends to the iPad Pro 11, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

In short, Young now expects the 14-inch iPad Pro to launch with an IPS panel capped at 60 Hz. In other words, the tablet sounds more like a larger iPad Air 5 than a super-sized iPad Pro. Incidentally, the next iPad Air is rumoured to retain the current 10.9-inch display size. Purportedly, Apple will announce new iPad Pros in the autumn, with a 14.1-inch model due sometime in early 2023. Seemingly, all future iPad models will rely on Apple M2, other than the iPad (10th Gen).
