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 still outstanding.
They also pack a ton of horsepower, run Apple’s latest version of iOS 13, and are a little bit cheaper than they were back in the fall of 2018.
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 iPad Pro rumors that have popped up.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an extremely reliable source, claims Apple’s working on successors for the 2018 models. We don’t have a specific release date yet, but it sounds like the new models will arrive in early 2020.
2020 iPad Pro Rumors
According to Kuo, the new iPad Pro models will enter mass production in early 2020 ahead of a release sometime in the first half of the year.
Hit-or-miss publication Digitimes claims production has begun and that Apple is aiming to launch new iPad Pro models in and around the month of March.
2020 iPad Pro rumors point to several key upgrades including a 3D camera system that could mirror the setup Apple installs on the 2020 iPhones. The new models reportedly feature the same screen sizes as the current models.
Digitimes also claims Apple might be planning to launch a new Smart Keyboard with a scissor switch design alongside the new iPad Pro models.
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 Until March
We don't have a firm launch date for these iPad Pro models, but all signs point to a launch in early 2020.
A report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Debby Wu stated that the new models would come sometime in 2019, but Gurman now reports that these models will land in 1H 2020. Respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the same thing.
Here's what Digitimes recently said about the upcoming launch:
"Apple is scheduled to launch its new iPad Pro series around March, with related suppliers already kicking off production for the model ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday. However, their output has started growing slowly after the extended Lunar New Year break in China with shipments unlikely to peak until after April, according to industry sources."
At this point, it looks like a launch will probably go down sometime next month which makes a ton of sense because it's the company's next product launch window.
If that doesn't happen, the next potential launch date would be the company's WWDC 2020 conference in June.
Again, additional iPad Pro models are rumored for Q3 2020 so we could see them arrive in September alongside the 2020 flagship iPhones.
If you're in the market for a new, powerful iPad, think about hanging around until March.
