Apple will reportedly release an iPad Pro with an M2 chip this fall

Apple is apparently aiming to deliver an iPad Pro equipped with the suspected M2 processor somewhere between September and November of this year, according to the Power On newsletter published by Apple tracker and analyst Mark Gurman. Mr. Gurman anticipates that Apple will release a significant software upgrade for the future generation of iPad Pros, which will allegedly contain support for MagSafe charging.

The iPad Pro had its most major change in 2018, when Apple released a new design with tougher edges, an edge-to-edge display, and a USB-C port, as noted by Gurman. The iPad Pro 10.5 was released in 2017, and this upgrade arrived approximately a year and a half after that release.

In addition, it is said that the new IPAD PRO will have a GLASS BACKING.
Apple is on set to follow the same trend this year, having debuted the most recent iteration of M1-equipped iPad Pros in May 2021, which is the same month as the previous edition. Apple will spend anywhere between one year and four months and one year and six months preparing for the next model, according to rumours. The new model is expected to appear between September and November 2022.

Apple’s “Peek Performance” event earlier this month included the unveiling of the firm’s latest iPad Air, but the company did not showcase an upgraded edition of the iPad Pro. Gurman anticipated that the iPad Pro will include wireless charging features as well as a glass back in his prediction last year. Apple may have abandoned the glass back design, according to a report from 9to5Mac, whose sources believe the company may have opted for an aluminium back with a glass Apple logo instead.

There hasn’t been much information released regarding the supposed M2 processor, though, since Apple hasn’t acknowledged the existence of the chip. In Gurman’s opinion, the chip’s CPU will be marginally quicker than its predecessor and will have the same eight-core design as its predecessor. He also anticipates that Apple will include the M2 in both the new iPad Pro and the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, and 24-inch iMac, all of which are expected to be released later this year. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the revamped MacBook Air will be powered by an M2 processor, whereas Gurman predicts that it will be powered by the reported M1 chip.
