A rumor last week suggesting that Apple was planning to unveil three new iPads on October 17th proved to be wrong. As for the tablets, Apple is expected to unveil new iPad models in March according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
Gurman wrote that Apple has been working on the iPad Air, which could see a change under the hood with the M1 chip replaced by the more powerful M2. In addition, Apple is also working on refreshing the basic iPad tablet and a new version of the iPad mini.
Apple is expected to unveil a refreshed set of tablets next year including new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models. The rumored next iPad mini is said to be powered by the same 4nm A16 Bionic chipset that currently powers the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
Apple is also said to be working on new versions of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro premium tablets which are expected to be the first from Apple to sport OLED displays. But a report by DigiTimes claims that the new iPad Pro models will use LCD instead.
The new 11th-gen iPad, M2 iPad Air, and the next iPad mini will be introduced in March with the updated iPad Pro tablets to be announced later in the year.
