Apple’s fabled 10.5-inch iPad Pro won’t see the light of day in March after all. At least, that’s according to a new DigiTimes report, which claims the device will debut at an event in early April.
The report goes on to say Apple is expected to align the 10.5-inch model as a high-end device alongside its 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which is also expected to receive a refresh. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro, meanwhile, is also due for a refresh, DigiTimes claims.
According to previous reports, Apple’s brand new tablet will feature slimmer bezels and a virtual home button. DigiTimes’ report comes at a critical time, as references to unannounced iPads recently appeared “around Cupertino.”
It might be hard to find
Once the device becomes official, it may be difficult to find at launch. DigiTimes claims only one million 10.5-inch iPad Pros will be made per month, which could make it a hot commodity for the foreseeable future.
Aside from a few design tweaks, it’s unclear how Apple’s rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro will differ from the company’s existing lineup. If it features the same functionality with a different design, existing iPad Pro owners will certainly have no reason to upgrade.
With April quickly approaching, we should learn more soon.
