Mac is allegedly intending to deliver an iPad Pro with the supposed M2 chip at some point among September and November of this current year, as indicated by Apple tracker Mark Gurman’s Power On bulletin. Gurman anticipates that Apple should give a significant update for the forthcoming age of iPad Pros, which will probably incorporate help for MagSafe charging.
As Gurman brings up, Apple last gave the iPad Pro a huge update in 2018, when Apple presented a plan with more enthusiastically corners, an edge-to-edge show, and a USB-C connector. This update came about 18 months after the arrival of the iPad Pro 10.5 in 2017.
Mac is on target to rehash a similar example this year, as it sent off the latest age of M1-prepared iPad Pros in May 2021. A supposed day for kickoff among September and November 2022 methods Apple will spend anyplace between one year and four months and one year and a half year preparing the new model.
During Apple’s “Peek Performance” event earlier this month, the company showed off its newest iPad Air but left out an updated model of the iPad Pro. Last year, Gurman predicted the iPad Pro would come with wireless charging capabilities and a glass backing. A report from 9to5Mac corroborates this claim, but its sources say Apple may have abandoned the glass back design, potentially opting for an aluminum back with a glass Apple logo instead.
There hasn’t been much information about the rumored M2 chip either, as it still hasn’t been confirmed by Apple. Gurman thinks the chip’s CPU will be slightly faster than its predecessor and come with the same eight-core architecture. He also expects Apple to add the M2 to both the new iPad Pro, as well as to the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and 24-inch iMac that are rumored for release later this year. Predictions for an M2 chip powering the redesigned MacBook Air are split — Gurman says it will include the rumored chip, while Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks it will come with the M1.
