New 10.5-inch iPad Pro entering limited production for possible April announcement


Things are looking up for new iPads – truly new, not the iPad Air re-release built on iPhone 6 hardware that showed up a week ago. IHS analyst Rhoda Alexander hinted that Apple's manufacturing partners are about to begin limited production of a brand-new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. However, the tablet's debated announcement date is up in the air. The previously rumored March event is obviously a no-go, so an April keynote may be in order.

DigiTimes suggested that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will be outed in early April, celebrating the new Apple Park campus' inauguration, which sounds plausible. The new iPad Pro may be in for a limited spring launch in the United States and some other markets, with a gradually expanding global roll-out.

Furthermore, mobile marketing firm Fiksu shared four new iPad identifiers it saw in its records. They supposedly denote Wi-Fi & Wi-Fi + Cellular variants of new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.

Overall, chances are good that new iPad Pro tablets will be announced before the end of April. For now, we'll just have to keep waiting.

Don't say that. A self proclaim tech expert will show up blabbering about how bad ARM base tablets are.

As an iPad Pro 12.9 owner all i can do is to agree with you. There realy is no Pro feature on iPad Pro - it's still just a bigger iPhone with native stylus support.

Well... The names in almost all of Apple products are for marketing stunt than for denoting the actual features of the said products.
