Leaker Claims New 11th-Generation Low-Cost iPad Will Launch Tomorrow

Apple will introduce a new low-cost 11th-generation iPad tomorrow, according to leaker Majin Bu. Majin Bu claims that the new ‌iPad‌ will have the same design as the 10th-generation model, and that accessories "will be perfectly compatible."

Last week, the same leaker claimed that Apple would debut a third-generation Apple Pencil with interchangeable magnetic tips, and today's rumor comes following conflicting reports about products that Apple might be introducing tomorrow.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said on Sunday that while new iPads are in development, new models are not expected this month, while reports from 9to5Mac and Supercharged News claimed that Apple plans to introduce new iPad mini, iPad Air, and ‌iPad‌ models as soon as Tuesday. Separately, Japanese site Mac Otakara reported that Apple doesn't have plans to introduce new iPads, but will debut a new Apple Pencil 3 instead.

Majin Bu's report of an 11th-generation ‌iPad‌ does not mention the ‌iPad Air‌ or the ‌iPad mini‌, and it also seems to suggest that the ‌iPad‌ will be accompanied by compatible accessories, perhaps a new ‌Apple Pencil‌ as suggested by ‌Mac Otakara‌.

Majin Bu is known for sharing rumors from Weibo and other sources, but the information that we hear is often hit or miss. At this point, it is unclear whether we're going to get new iPads, an ‌Apple Pencil‌, or some combination of both, but we'll find out more in the morning.

Would be wild if the cheap iPad goes from Pencil 1 straight to Pencil 3.

Apples development of iPads has plateaued... it has for many manufacturers...

Most tablets... even Apples lowest of the range model does what most people want of a tablet... for others that are artists and who push the iPads in other ways can do most of what they need on the 2018 iPad Pros.. only a very small percentage need anything more powerful... and if you do, its likely a Mac would be a better option.

All we have had are incremental updates... higher refresh screens, faster processors, more RAM... but the use case and limitation of iPad OS remains.

No wonder revenue for tablets its falling off a cliff.. the market has reached saturation... and most people are happy with iPads that are 3 plus years old.

All Apple need to do now is push out a major refresh on a 2 years cycle... release refined, sensible, worthwhile updates instead of a random, ill advised update cycle chasing changes for revenue. Please no more updates like last years base model which used the ancient cumbersome Apple Pencil first gen... requiring an adapter! It just stinks of bad decision making and desperation. That shouldn't happen at a company that basically re-defined and made the tablet its own.

It's now all about the software.. features like improving stage manager... maybe a hybrid option for the Pro devices where you can maybe have a MacOS-like user interface if you so desire. Better software is what iPad needs along with sensible hardware design.

Gurman and Kuo continue to be wrong with greater frequency. And I don't think Kuo's ever been right on an iPad.
