New iPad Pro M2 models are reportedly just days away

The next-gen iPad Pro, powered by Apple’s latest M2 processor, is set to launch “in just a few days,” according to Apple Bloombergis Mark Gurman. It will be the first new model since May last year and will reportedly offer a 20 per cent increase in speed over the M1 version. Apple will also introduce an iPad dock with a built-in speaker in 2023 and launch new Macs later this year, Gurman wrote in his newsletter.

The new iPad Pro models will retain the same form factors as the current models, with 11-inch and 12.9-inch display versions. While the performance boost isn’t huge, 20 percent is still significant, the M2 chips should bring more efficiency to the iPads Pro. Along with the new high-end models, Apple will soon release an entry-level iPad, Gurman said. It will reportedly have a USB-C connector instead of a Lightning connector (in line with upcoming European regulations), as well as 5G support – but use an A14 Bionic instead of an M-series chip.

Another interesting piece of news is that Apple is working on an iPad docking accessory with a built-in speaker that could be announced next year. The idea is that users can connect an iPad to the device and get a full home hub/smart speaker experience. It appears to be similar to the Pixel charging speaker dock that Google has revealed will come with the Pixel tablet, which goes on sale next year.

Along with new iPads, Apple will release 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models later this year. They come with more powerful versions of the M2 chip, including the M2 Pro and M2 Max. A Mac Mini with an M2 processor is also coming in the near future.

Finally, Apple is working on the next generation of Apple TV, which will use an A14 chip and come with 4GB of RAM, offering a significant boost over the current A12 model. While Gurman is generally accurate about such things, Apple is also prone to changing its mind about products and launch dates – so take the rumors with a little salt until they’re officially announced.
