If you’ve been waiting for a new iPad Pro model, your wait could almost be over as it’s likely that the iPad Pro 2022 range will be announced sometime today (October 18).
This is acc Markus Gurman (opens in new tab)who has an excellent track record for Apple information, and while he’s the only source pointing specifically to today, others are suggesting that the launch should also be imminent.
Several leakers have said that the 2022 iPad Pro will land in October, for example, and Gurman has done so also noted (opens in new tab) that most iPad Pro configurations are now out of stock in many Apple Stores in the US; with shipping estimates slipping into November online for some models.
If it wasn’t obvious from the wording “days away” on Saturday, the start should be tomorrow. https://t.co/moc5PU8hLkOctober 17, 2022
That’s notable because Apple probably won’t have any inventory issues with these models, so the fact that the company has sold them out suggests they’ll be replaced soon.
Additionally, Apple tends to announce new products on Tuesdays, such as the iPad Pro 2021 line being announced on a Tuesday. As such, we cannot be sure today is It’s looking very likely by the day we’ll see the iPad Pro 2022 line, and if not today, we’ll likely see these slates very soon anyway.
Analysis: a new base iPad and also iPadOS 16.1
The iPad Pro 11 (2022) and iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) might not be the only things Apple will be announcing, as leaks suggest we’ll also see a new standard iPad (2022), so there might be new ones Options will give both ends of Apple’s tablet line.
Also, we’re still waiting for the finished release of iPadOS 16 – or rather, iPadOS 16.1, since Apple is directly accessing it for the final release. Leaks suggest this will land in October and it would make sense to announce it alongside new hardware.
Of course, the actual shipping date of these new best iPad contenders and the availability of iPadOS 16.1 could come a bit later, but at least we could have those dates soon too. Don’t expect a big deal for it, though – leaks suggest today’s announcement – if it happens in the next few hours – will be via press release.
