According to two reports, Apple plans to introduce updated models of its current iPad lineup later this week. A new iPad, iPad Air, and iPad mini are reportedly being developed by the Cupertino business and might be unveiled soon. However, aside from the chipset, it’s unlikely that these new models will come out with major changes to their features. Although an impending release is improbable, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman writes in his weekly newsletter that Apple is working on improved iPad models.
According to a Supercharged report claiming insiders informed of Apple’s plans, the company will introduce revised iPad models this week, including a new iPad Air model with a modernized M2 chip. The A16 Bionic chip seen in the iPhone 15 may, however, be used in the iPad Mini, which is now powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic processor. The media has previously speculated that Apple would include a cure for the “jelly scrolling” problem that affects the current-generation iPad mini in its upcoming model.
Apple will reportedly introduce the refreshed models via press releases on the company’s website and its YouTube channel rather than a virtual or actual event because they are minor hardware improvements for the company’s current products. Every year, Apple uses the same method to reveal new color options for its current-generation iPhone.
With its own sources, 9to5Mac claims to have verified the Supercharged rumor and that the announcement might happen as early as Tuesday, October 17. Although Apple is currently working on updating the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad mini with more powerful chips, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman writes in his Power On email that he does not think “updates of any significance are imminent.”
According to Gurman, an updated model of the MacBook Pro with Apple’s upcoming M3 Pro and M3 Max chips is almost ready for mass manufacturing and will be released between early spring and spring of next year. According to the Bloomberg reporter, an M3-powered MacBook Air won’t be available until the second half of 2024.
Gurman claims that the business is also developing technology that would enable it to remotely power on an iPhone inside of its retail locations, set up the most recent operating system version, and then turn the phone off. Before a customer purchases a device, the company may be able to provide the phone with the most recent iOS version, which contains all of the most recent bug fixes and improvements.
