2017 iPad Pro Models To Debut Next Week Without Keynote Event
As it stands, the iPad Pro production line needs an upgrade. Reports have been circulating that Apple is thinking of doing the necessary improvements, but it is only now surfacing that the company might be doing it very soon and quietly as well. No announcements of an event have been made, but it is speculated that the new tablets will reach the market by next week.
According to Mac Rumors, new Apple products might be launched sometime between March 20 and March 24. The publication cited a source that is within the tech giant's supply chain, although they did not specify which items will be released. It is, however, highly suspected the new iPad Models will soon roll out in various stores and authorized distributors.
As many as three new units are expected to be released, including a revamped versions of the 9.7 inch and 12.9-inch models, as well as an all-new 10.5 inch iPad Pro. The new sizing is expected to debut slimmer bezels. Some reports have claimed that a 7.9-inch model will also be released, but it is not a common belief.
Some might expect Apple to hold an event to announce its new products, but with the launch estimated to take place next week, a keynote seems highly unlikely. Apple Insider has pointed out that the Cupertino tech giant normally distributes invitations at least ten days prior to the night itself. Furthermore, the publication noted that these events are usually held on Mondays or Tuesdays. Unless the company is looking to change up its marketing practices, the new iPad Pro line might just quietly slip into stores.
There has also been some news on a new 128 GB iPhone SE, which doubles the storage space of Apple's current entry-level smartphone. However, no other updates other than the increase in built-in storage are expected. As such, the company might also choose to quietly release the new handheld.
