Initially, speculation surrounded the possibility of Apple equipping the rumoured 12.9-inch iPad Air with a Mini-LED screen, drawing from leftover panels from the iPad Pro series. However, recent statements from Young suggest a departure from this prediction. According to Young's subscriber-only post on X, both variants of the iPad Air are now expected to feature IPS LCD screens, akin to their predecessors, the iPad Air (5th Gen). This shift in approach is attributed to the high costs associated with upgrading to newer display technology.

Furthermore, Young speculates on Apple's plans for future iPad releases beyond the imminent launch event. Instead of repurposing Mini-LED panels for the 12.9-inch iPad Air, Apple may opt to introduce a new iPad model later in the year. However, details regarding the specific model—whether it will be an iPad Pro or an iPad Air—are yet to surface. If Young's predictions hold true, consumers can anticipate this new iPad variant to hit the market in the fourth quarter of 2024.

As the countdown to Apple's 'Let loose' event continues, enthusiasts remain intrigued by the evolving narrative surrounding the tech giant's product lineup. While initial expectations pointed towards advancements in display technology, recent insights suggest a more pragmatic approach driven by cost considerations. Nonetheless, the promise of innovative features such as the revamped Apple Pencil keeps excitement levels high as consumers await the official unveiling.
