Apple's 9.7-inch 'iPad Pro 2' Could Launch by March 31st

Initially, iPad Mini 5 was expected to be launched at Apple's September 2016 event because its predecessor, Apple iPad Mini 4 was released in the same month of the previous year.

The hotly anticipated event takes place in March each year, but a date for 2017 has not been confirmed. Expected initial shipments of the new 10.5-inch iPad are likely to reach one million units and are expected to increase up to 1.2 million units a month from the second quarter. The smaller and larger versions of the trio are differentiated enough in form factor, but it's hard to imagine consumers complaining that their 9.7-inch iPad would be so much more useful if only the diagonal measurement was 0.8 inches larger. Although some rumors are claiming that the Cupertino based tech giant will rebrand the iPad Mini line into iPad Pro Mini, but the tech company has yet to provide an official statement regarding the matter.

While it is becoming clear that new iPads are on the horizon, Apple's exact launch plans remain convoluted.

Some sources have indicated delays with shipping out the 10.5-inch iPad Pro this year, so it's even possible that Apple will delay the entire event beyond Spring 2017. The Apple Pro 2017 tablets come with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB of internal memory.

We've been hearing a lot of things about Apple's new iPad lineup.

The long-rumored "10.5-inch iPad Pro" and a next-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro might not launch until the fall. Nevertheless, a new report claims that four iPad models are due to be announced and that one of them is going to be the iPad mini Pro.

It's getting better but it hasn't come along like I'd hoped. "But yeah, it's more hard this season than it has been in the past". Cavaliers forward Kevin Love was out of Saturday's game likely because he just returned from knee surgery on Thursday.

9to5Mac also says that 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 will be coming with an A10X chip to enhance the CPU and graphics performance.

Now, as and when Apple makes more information available about the iPad Pro 2, we will let you know.

Aside from the 10.5-inch model expected to be debuted, a low-priced model is also highly anticipated.

Apple unveils a new version of macOS every year at WWDC, so the company will probably unveil the next version of MacOS (10.13) at WWDC this year.

Numerous reports suggest that Apple is considering to introduce a host of design changes and internal upgrades toward its next-gen iPad range, which could represent the first step needed by the company to make a strong comeback in the tablet market.
