Apple iPad Pro 2 to be Revealed Next Week?

Apple could update the 9.7-inch iPad Pro without a special event, according to Japanese analysts via Macotakara.

With the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro getting refreshed and two new iPad variants being introduced, Apple might very well spark a new wave of interest in tablet devices. Apple now doesn't have a scheduled event for that date, so a press release will likely be issued to deliver the news.

Coming to the release date, it could be anytime from March 20 to 24, but some reports are arguing that statement, saying it will be released in April instead. DigiTimes claims only one million 10.5-inch iPad Pros will be made per month, which could make it a hot commodity for the foreseeable future.

Pricing on the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is less clear. But will Apple make an oh-by-the-way announcement about expanded support for Pencil after revealing the new slab?

After what seems to be a long time in the world of technology, there is still no official word from Apple about a new iteration of its high-tech tablet, the iPad Pro.

For those wondering how iPad Mini 5 will look like, there are rumors that Apple will be using Series 7000 aluminum for its new iPad lineups.

iPhone SE 2: It is rumoured that Apple may launch a new iPhone SE with upgraded storage.

Some iPad deals that are now up for grabs via local carriers offer up to $150 off and the most models are scheduled to end on April 1, 2017. The question is whether Apple will follow its pattern of updating the iPads to an A10X, or simply jump ahead to the A11X.

Low-cost iPad: A new "value" 9.7-inch iPad may be priced as low as $299, according to Alexander. For photography, the 7.9-inch iPad Pro model could sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing iSight camera with True Tone flash. The entire iPad Pro 2 lineup is expected to be powered by the company's own A10X processor that's going to offer the same hardware power as iPhone 7's A10 chipset. Nevertheless, a new report suggests that Apple may hold a non-glitzy media conference next week and surprise fans with a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2017 model.
