The iPad Pro and iPad Air are set to get a refresh -- but it doesn't look like either are going to arrive in April as previously thought.

If you've been holding out for a new iPad Pro, you may not need to wait much longer. A new report suggests that the iPad Pro, along with the iPad Air, may be getting an update in May.

Sources told Bloomberg that the upcoming iPad Pro models will be equipped with brand-new OLED displays. These models have been given the codenames J717, J718, J720, and J721. Additionally, they will run on the new M3 chip and will be compatible with new versions of the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil.



Apple is set to refresh not just the iPad Pro but also the iPad Air. The iPad Air will receive a new processor and expand the iPad Air lineup to include a 12.9-inch iPad Air, which is similar to the iPad Pro.

Bloomberg notes that Apple had likely planned for a March release as it tends to do but had faced delays due to the new OLED screen manufacturing process.

Rumor Score: Likely

    May is only 2 months away, that isn’t a long time.

    My shares are doing just fine. I bought before the iPhone was introduced.

    Did you get a TrumpBot to produce that?

    But seriously, thank you if you sold all your Apple shares. Now I can pick them up cheap.

    How can the iPad Air 2023 / early / mid 2024 be this delayed? Take the 2020 design, use components from the 2022 MBA, reposition front camera like on iPad 2022, and then what? This product could have been released in time for Christmas 2022.

    I'm going to predict that if we don't see these new iPads released by May, the "experts" will predict a release in June lol...
