Gurman: New iPads to Launch Towards 'End of March' or April

Apple plans to release new iPad Pro and iPad Air models "around the end of March or in April," according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. He also expects new Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil accessories for iPads to launch simultaneously.

Apple is expected to release a larger 12.9-inch iPad Air

In his Power On newsletter on Sunday, Gurman reiterated that Apple is preparing a special build of the already-released iPadOS 17.4 update for the new iPads:

Apple is preparing to launch revamped iPad Pros, new iPad Airs (including a 12.9-inch version), a Magic Keyboard and upgraded Apple Pencil. Look for that new hardware around the end of March or in April, as that's when the accompanying iPadOS 17.4 software should be ready to go.

The following iPad-related announcements are expected in the March-April window:

Gurman previously ruled out an Apple Event for the new iPads. Instead, the devices will likely be announced in a press release on the Apple Newsroom website, like the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air models with the M3 chip were last week.

Just having oled and new design isn’t gonna make the iPad Pro now worth it, it’s not a used product for most people because it’s just a big iPhone
2010 called. It wants its hot take back.
