Apple to Launch New iPads in Early May [Gurman]

Apple is finally nearing the launch of its much rumored new iPad Pro and iPad Air models, according to a new report from Mark Gurman.

For those looking for more specific timing, I'm told the launch will probably happen the week of May 6. Another data point to that end: Apple retail stores are preparing to receive new product marketing materials later that week. That's typically a sign that a new product release is incoming. It's also worth reiterating — as I reported at the end of March — that the complex new iPad screens are behind the roughly one month delay from the initial March release plan.

The new iPad Pro models are allegedly codenamed J717, J718, J720 and J721, and will likely feature an OLED display, an M3 chip, a landscape Face ID camera, and compatibility with a redesigned Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

The new iPad Air will purportedly get an upgraded processor and a new larger 12.9-inch screen size option.

Notably, four new iPad model numbers have recently shown up in the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) regulatory database. These are likely versions of the new iPad Pro and iPad Air. Updates to the iPad and iPad mini aren't expected until the end of the year at the earliest.

The new downscale iPad will probably end up being a cost-reduced version of the 10th generation model from 2022, while the iPad mini update won't include much more than a processor upgrade.
