A new rumor suggests that Apple could unveil its updated ninth-generation iPad later today, as part of several new product announcements for its “California streaming” event.
According to the Weibo account @PandaIsBald, which has shared information about iPhone 13 pre-order dates in the past, Apple plans to release a new ninth-generation “iPad” during or perhaps after today’s event.
The new “iPad” is expected to have a 10.5-inch screen, improved performance, as well as the current model, and is expected to be tailored to students and users who want an affordable “iPad” option.
The event is expected to be the cover of the iPhone 13, the Apple Watch 7 Series and probably the third generation AirPod. While these products are likely to appear during the event itself, Apple may choose to release other products through a press release.
Bloomberg Mark Gurman indicated this week that Apple is planning a second event this fall that will focus exclusively on the iPad and Mac. The ninth-generation PiPad is one of two “iPad” updates expected by the end of the year. The second update, the new and redesigned iPad mini, is a more significant refresh, so it is conceivable that Apple could dedicate its latest event to the “iPad mini”, while before it would announce a more gradual refresh of the “iPad”.
As stated on the website AppleTrack earlier today, the current eighth-generation iPada was still not available at several retail outlets in the United States. The flaws for the “iPad” began to emerge last week. Numerous Apple products, including Macs, iPhones and iPads, are currently facing a shortage due to the constant shortage of chips.
Whether or not the new “iPad” appears during the California Streaming event, Apple still has a lot to share. MacRumors will follow Apple’s event in detail on our platforms, including a live blog on our website and live tweets via @MacRumorsLive on Twitter, so be sure to follow to follow everything Apple has announced.
