References to Unannounced iPad Pro Models Spotted Ahead of Rumored October Event

References to two unannounced iPad Pro models have been spotted ahead of a rumored event set to place as soon as next month, where new iPads and Macs are expected to be revealed.

The references, spotted by 9to5Mac on Logitech's website, include a sixth-generation 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ and a fourth-generation 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌, two models expected next month. The references offer no details on the new products but state they're "coming soon."

Logitech includes the unannounced iPads in its list of supported iPads for its Crayon Digital Pencil, which is the only third-party stylus that can offer similar integration as the Apple Pencil. As 9to5Mac notes, given the close nature between Logitech and Apple, the references could have some merit as being legitimate.

The new 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pros are not expected to receive any major redesign but will instead benefit from the M2 Apple silicon chip. Early rumors suggested that the 11-inch model would get a new mini-LED display; however, that is no longer expected. Other rumors have suggested some form of MagSafe charging coming to the ‌iPad Pro‌.

USB-C please. I have an iPad Air with USB-C and the experience is much improved. MagSafe doesn't make much sense at all. Of course, other than to Apple for more cash flow into Timmy's bank account.
The current ipad pro has USB-C already...

Without the mini-LED display, 11" iPad Pro looks to be a boring upgrade: M2, better cameras, and Bluetooth 5.3.

Don't get me wrong, there are a couple of noteworthy rumored additions: (1) MagSafe charging would not only be more convenient but it will free up the USB-C port and(2) revised 4-pin magnetic smart connector might be complemented by new accessories.

What? Wouldn't they, iPad Pro's have been USBC for awhile now. They are advertised as having it for camera and other "pro" accessory connectivity.

I'm not getting conned into upgrading my M1 iPad Pro this year. The 2020 to 2021 update was effectively a waste of money other than the mini LED screen improvement. Apple has gotten really good about making very minor features feel like a big deal and people need to not buy into the hype.

Plus, state of iPadOS 16 is a complete mess right now, which gives me little to no faith regarding the direction they want to take for pro users. Every couple weeks I keep trying out Stage Manager, only to be severely disappointed by the fundamental function of it as well as the complete buggy mess it still is. I've seen almost no progress since WWDC, which gives me little hope that we'll have a version that is 'fixed' by the time the new iPads are released.
