The iPad Pro Might Finally Support Wireless Charging In 2024

While the iPhone has supported wireless charging for some time now, the same technology has never been offered via one of Apple’s tablets. Tablets have offered wireless charging beyond the iPad, of course, and the Pixel Tablet charges via pogo pins on its rear when docked with its own charging station.

That charger also has a speaker built in as well, turning the whole thing into a HomePod-like device.

There’s little suggestion that Apple will do something similar, but a new MacRumors report says that Apple is indeed working on adding MagSafe charging to its upcoming OLED iPad Pro tablets, both of which are expected to arrive in 2024.

The next-generation version of the iPad Pro that’s set to come out in 2024 might include support for MagSafe charging, MacRumors has heard. The information comes from a source that is familiar with companies that manufacture magnets for Apple products, and while it’s not confirmed at this time, there have been past rumors pointing toward Apple’s work on wireless charging for the iPad.

Those two iPad Pro models are set to come in 11.1- and 13-inch display configurations and the switch to OLED technology should make for better colors, improved contrast, and more. But the addition of MagSafe charging will be another notable change, with Qi2 compatibility likely a given — offering a maximum wireless charge speed of 15W.

That will mean that those looking for the fastest charging solution will still want to use a cable, but wireless charging could be a big addition if Apple brings the iPhones’ StandBy mode to the iPad, for example.
