Apple are having their big even on the 9th of September and it is set to be one of their largest events ever. It is being held in San Francisco. We are going to be getting a pair of brand new iPhone, a revamped Apple TV set top box, and new bands for the Apple Watch. But that is not all, Apple is currently planning to debut a pair of new iPads next week too. The long-rumored iPad Pro, and a refreshed version of the iPad mini.
The iPad Pro is currently scheduled to hit retail outlets in November after its pre-order campaign in October according to sources. There have been rumors that the Macbook-sized iPad will make its debut next week, it is possible that Apple could hold back and have an early October event for the iPad.
We do know however that next week’s event will include an unprecedented number of product introductions beating last year’s iPhone 6, Apple Watch, and Apple Pay keynote. If the iPad Pro is going to be shown off next week, sources indicate that the new iPad mini 4 will also be introduced as well. A third version of the iPad Air is also said to be in the works but sources confirm that it won’t be released until 2016. New Macs are also unlikely to be featured at next week’s event.
The iPad mini 4 will be thinner than the current version and will include a faster A-series chip with support for split-screen apps first introduced in iOS 9. It will also likely include a pair of upgraded cameras. As for the iPad Pro, codenamed J98/J99 internally, the larger-sized tablet will be geared toward power users and run iOS 9.1, support a Force Touch-based stylus, and include speakers on two sides for a more pronounced stereo effect. The new iOS 9.1 operating system is said to bring additional tweaks to the iPad Pro including optimized versions of Siri and Notification Center interfaces. If Apple does unveil these new iPads next week, an event in October can be ruled out.
What do you think, are you excited about the new iPad Pro? I know we are and we would love to hear your thoughts on this Macbook-sized iPad. Maybe there is something else you are more excited about though so be sure to let us know in the comments what you are looking forward to at this year’s Apple Event.Read more...
