New iPad models are unlikely to be introduced before the end of the year, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo today said.
Kuo did not provide any further information about Apple’s upcoming tablets. While the next-generation iPad Pro models have consistently been rumored to launch in 2024 rather than this year, reports around refreshes of the iPad mini and iPad Air have been mixed.
Most recently, a reliable Weibo leaker said that the sixth-generation ?iPad Air? should launch in October as the only ?iPad? refresh of 2023, with “no mini and Pro this year.” On the latest episode of The MacRumors Show podcast, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said that there is a new iPad Air with improved specifications in the works and the device is apparently “coming soonish,” likely in October. Given Kuo’s latest statement, the launch of a new ?iPad Air? in October now seems to be in doubt.
Last week, Kuo said that Apple likely no longer plans to release any new MacBook models with M3-series chips this year. All in all, following its “Wonderlust” event to unveil the iPhone 15 lineup, Apple’s potential releases for the remainder of 2023 may be dwindling.Related Roundups: iPad, iPad Air , iPad Pro, iPad miniTag: Ming-Chi KuoBuyer’s Guide: iPad (Neutral), iPad Air (Don’t Buy), 11″ iPad Pro (Caution), 12.9″ iPad Pro (Neutral), iPad Mini (Caution)Related Forum: iPadThis article, “Kuo: New iPads ‘Unlikely’ to Launch This Year” first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
