Mark Gurman, the Apple product specialist, recently shared his new predictions. He discovered that the Cupertino company was planning to launch its three new tablets on the market at an event in October. Indeed, the latest iPad and iPad Pro models are expected to get a redesign compared to their predecessors. The Bloomberg reporter estimated that the iPad Pro will land with an M2 processor and the standard iPad will be updated with an A14 chip as well as a USB-C port.
But not only ! These new tablets are expected to appear alongside new, updated M2 versions of the Mac Mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro. Apparently, these Macs will also arrive with a new webcam and a better screen. Note that these are only speculations, however, Mark Gurman is renowned for the reliability of his sources. So will October be dedicated to tablets and Macs?
Details on the new tablets from Apple
The standard model in the range (iPad 10) benefits from fairly significant upgrades. Indeed, it should abandon the Lightning port in favor of a USB-C port. For information, it is the only Apple product to have retained this brand-specific connection so far. And it would also be powered by an A14 Bionic chip. As for the screen, it could benefit from an improved resolution as well as an increase in size to 10.5 inches or even 10.9 inches.
About the two iPad Pro models, namely iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9, they are expected to come with an M2 chip. Mark Gurman assumes they won’t have any panel changes but will benefit from the introduction of MagSafe charging and battery technology to match iPhones. In other words, they will have better autonomy.
What about M2 Macs?
At least one of the Mac Mini, Mac Pro and MacBook Pro will make an appearance in two months. According to the journalist, it is still too early to know the upgrades corresponding to these products but it is quite possible that the MacBook Pro 14 and 16 inches with M2 Pro will be at the heart of the announcements.
Among the ranges expected before the end of 2022 is the iPhone 14 range. The latter will also receive some interesting updates, which would make it the best range of smartphones in the sector at present. And many are waiting for its official launch.
