There Will Be No New iPads till Summer

Kari ReynoldsJan 21, 2017

It's possible, the site's sources say, that Apple won't announce or release the new iPads until the second half of this year.

Apple has been absolutely silent on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and tech enthusiasts it could have been a one-time thing.

What's more, the report claims: "Apple will also procure components from its secondary suppliers for its new 9.7-inch iPad and Korea-based Seoul Semiconductor will supply LED for the device instead of the existing 9.7-inch iPad's supplier Nichia".

There is still life for the Air range though Apple reportedly focuses on its newer iPad Pro range if the latest reports is of any indication.

Also, it is expected that the iPad Air 3 will ship with an Apple Pencil in order to compete with Microsoft's Surface line of 2-in-1 tablets.

The Apple Pencil which is now in use across the world was released in 2015.

Rumors suggest that the new Apple Pencil will have a magnet system that will allow the accessory to attach to the iPad Pro. While the tablets may be the main focus of the alleged launch event, Apple is expected to allocate a good amount of time in presenting the features and capabilities of the new input accessory. Apple now sells a 7.9-inch iPad Mini along with the 9.7-inch iPad Air. But reports are saying that it will be delayed until the second half of the year. Alongside, Makotakara said we'd see a "7.9-inch iPad Pro" and second-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The 2017 iPads are expected to be equipped with the amazingly fast A10X chipsets. It might not have a home button because of a almost bezel-less display, with the only border expected to be located at the top for a FaceTime camera.

The Weibo leak goes on to reveal that the new Apple Pencil 2 may be coming with additional sensors on the device itself which will let users shift to different functions that will include an eraser.
