iPad Pro: We’re all asking the same thing as October goes by: When will all the new Apple gear that has been reported come out? The initial releases might appear “in a couple of days,” according to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg; in a subsequent tweet on Monday, he said they will arrive on Tuesday morning.
Gurman writes in his weekly Power On newsletter that Apple’s entry-level and iPad Pro lines will get updates first. The iPad Pro will have the same design as the present versions, which haven’t changed since 2018, but an M2 processor will increase performance. The screen sizes and other specifications are anticipated to remain the same, including the screen differences between the 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions, as Display Supply Chain Consultants’ Ross Young verified via a tweet.
However, there are rumours that the new iPad Pros could include wireless and MagSafe charging.
According to rumours, the 10th-generation iPad would include a considerably larger 10.5-inch display, flat sides, and USB-C. Gurman just claims that the new model will be “the most significant update to that line in several years.” A Twitter user spotted a new case for the 2022 iPad in Target that shows the new tablet will support the 2nd generation Apple Pencil. There are conflicting rumours about how dramatic the redesign will be—it may lose the Home button altogether. The only Apple tablet that is compatible with the first-generation Pencil is the iPad.
The iPads will arrive on Tuesday morning, most likely around 8:30 am ET, according to Gurman’s subsequent tweet, which clarified that “days” indeed meant days. Gurman also claims that iPadOS 16.1 won’t be released until the week of October 24, which means that the new iPads probably won’t start shipping until the following Friday, October 28.
Additionally, a flurry of new Macs, including the M2 updates for the Mac mini and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, are expected to be released by Apple this month. They could fly in with macOS Monterey next week or in the first part of November.
