Lots of New Rumors Surrounding iPads

Heads up, iPad fans! We’ve got some fresh gossip about the new iPads that might be hitting the shelves soon. Let’s take a look at what’s going on, shall we?

Release Date Leaked! Or not?

There are fresh rumors about when the new iPad models, especially the iPad Pro, will be revealed. One source suggests a big reveal on March 26. It seems like instead of a big event, they might just drop all the details through online videos and marketing campaigns. So, what’s the best guess for when these new iPads will hit the stores? We’re looking at the tail end of March or possibly stretching into April. Now, this isn’t a wild speculation on our part – it’s backed by reports from reliable leaker that have a good track record when it comes to Apple’s plans. And considering Apple just rolled out the new MacBook Air models with that M3 chip, this timeline is looking pretty solid.

However, Mark Gurman has a different opinion about announcement timings – saying that the variant of iPadOS 17.4 for the new iPad models won’t be ready until at least late this month, with a couple of weeks to get the software installed on the initial shipments. That timing per Mark will likely take things deeper into next month for a launch of the new iPads but the announcement still can happen somewhat sooner.

Are New iPad Airs Already Shipping?

The latest whispers about the new iPad Air model suggest they’re already on their way to us from China. That’s right before the big reveal has even happened, these new gadgets are rumored to be making the journey to various parts of the globe in anticipation of their official launch. This tidbit comes from the leaker known as “Instant Digital” on Macrumors. According to them, we might see two different sizes for the iPad Air this time around. One of the size options will be the same as the previous one at 10.9 inches, while the newcomer will apparently mirror the ‌iPad Pro‌’s 12.9-inch model. Whether you’re after a more compact device for ease of portability or a larger screen for a better viewing experience, Apple seems to be gearing up to offer options.

Fresh Rumors on New iPad Pros

The upcoming iPad Pro models are generating new rumors by the hour. One of the standout rumors is the significant reduction in bezel thickness, aiming for a sleeker, more immersive viewing experience. This move aligns with the ongoing trend in tech for devices to have less frame and more screen, offering users a larger canvas without increasing the overall size of the device. The expected bezel slim-down could position the new iPad Pro models as the go-to device for professionals and creatives seeking a blend of portability and expansive screen real estate.

But that’s not the only thing. There’s also talk of a new matte screen option, a first for the iPad Pro lineup. This matte display aims to reduce glare and reflections, making the screen easier on the eyes and more readable in bright conditions, a boon for users who frequently work outdoors or in brightly lit environments. The matte finish could also provide a different tactile feel, potentially offering a better grip and a smoother experience when using the Apple Pencil.

Wrapping It Up

With all the anticipation, it’s important to remember that until Apple makes an official announcement, these rumors remain just that – rumors. The tech giant is known for its tight-lipped approach to product launches, often leaving us guessing until the very last moment.

As we edge closer to the rumored dates, it’s best to keep an eye on credible sources and official announcements.  The next few weeks could bring some exciting developments to our beloved tablets, so, iPad enthusiasts, stay tuned with us.
