2021 iPad Pro not shipping until April at the earliest, says Digitimes
What you need to know
- Apple is expected to unveil a new 2021 iPad Pro very soon.
- A new report says that shipping will begin in the second quarter of 2021, so April at the earliest.
- It has been reported an Apple event expected for March will actually be held in April.
Digitimes reports that Apple's next iPad Pro, expected to the best iPad yet, will begin shipping no earlier than April, despite previous reports of a March release.
In a new report the outlet stated:
Beginning in the second quarter would indicate shipments no sooner than the first of earlier, quashing earlier rumors that the product would be unveiled at a March Apple event. Shortly after this report, Apple leaker Jon Prosser claimed that the event we were expecting Apple to hold in March would actually be held in April, going back on his previous estimation and that of Apple leaker Kang. From that report:
With no March event seemingly on the cards, but multiple reports that the 2021 iPad Pro is coming in the first half of the year, an April release is certainly not out of the question. The new iPad Pro is expected to debut with a new mini-LED display, 5G, a new processor but no exterior design changes.
