It looks like Apple might launch new iPad Pro models in 2020. While some of you might want to wait for these new iPad Pro models, others are better off buying another iPad, or another tablet, ahead of their rumored launch.

If you’re in the hunt for a new tablet, Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro models should be near the top of your shopping list. They’re outstanding.

The 2018 iPad Pros come in two sizes, 11-inches and 12.9-inches, with four storage options (64GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB) and two colors (silver and space gray).

They also pack a ton of horsepower, run Apple’s latest version of iOS 13, and are both a little bit cheaper than they were back in the fall of 2018.

We typically recommend going with an iPad Pro over Apple’s other iPad models, but the new 10.2-inch iPadiPad mini 5 and iPad Air 3 are certainly worth a look as well.

If you’re hunting for a powerful tablet, you would be wise to consider the 2018 iPad Pro models. That said, you should also take note of the new iPad Pro rumors that have popped up throughout 2019.

Ming-Chi Kuo, an extremely reliable source, claims Apple’s working on successors for the 2018 models. We don’t have a release date yet, but it sounds like the new models will arrive in 2020 rather than 2019.

2020 iPad Pro Rumors

According to Kuo, the new iPad Pro models will enter mass production later this year or sometime in early 2020. The new models reportedly feature the same screen sizes as the current models.

Originally, the new iPad Pros looked like they would arrive in late 2019. However, that probably won’t happen now that we’re inching closer to the end of the year.

Recent comments made by Apple’s chief financial officer Luca Maestri hint at a launch further down the road. His comments hint at a launch in 2020 or later.

Bloomberg, and various other sources, originally claimed new iPad Pros would come in 2020. Now, it looks like the launch will take place next year.

Reports have put an iPad Pro launch in early 2020 which means the device(s) could arrive around the same time as Apple’s rumored iPhone SE 2. Bloomberg now puts the launch in the first half of 2020.

Given the massive changes Apple made to the iPad Pro line last year, these new models could simply be a refresh, which, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Rumors point to several key upgrades including a 3D camera system that could mirror the setup Apple installs on the 2020 iPhones.

There’s also chatter about another iPad Pro launch later in the year. Ming-Chi Kuo claims Apple will release a souped up 12.9-inch iPad Pro in the third quarter of 2020.

With rumors swirling, we want to take you through the best reasons to wait for these rumored iPad Pro models and the best reasons to skip them and buy something else.

Wait for Better Performance

Wait for Better Performance

Here are a few things to consider before you commit to buying a current iPad model or another tablet right now. 

If Apple is working on new iPad Pros for 2020, you can count on these models to come with performance upgrades. 

A report from Bloomberg claims that the new iPad Pros will unsurprisingly come with "faster processors" which we assume means they'll come equipped with Apple's A13 chip. This will help them standout from the 2018 models. 

A new research note from Ming-Chi Kuo states that Apple will release a powerful 12.9-inch iPad Pro model in Q3 2020 with a brand new A14X chip.

The current iPad Pro models, and the iPad Air 3 and iPad mini 5 for that matter, pack enough horsepower for most people, but if you aren't satisfied with what's out there, think about waiting.
