New iPads won’t arrive on March 26 (but when?)

We can expect new iPads soon, but they reportedly won’t arrive on March 26 after all. When will Apple announce the tablets?

Apple is working on four new iPads

Earlier this week, rumors predicted that the 2024 iPad Pro and iPad Air would release on March 26. It now appears that that date is not the time when the tablets will appear after all. The usually reliable Apple expert Mark Gurman has debunked that rumor with a simple tweet. According to him, it will take some time before we see the new tablets.

This has to do with the new version of iPadOS 17.4, which must be installed on the devices. This update is not yet ready, Apple needs at least until the end of this month. So we probably can’t expect the tablets on March 26. Mark Gurman has also said when Apple will probably announce the devices.

New iPads: when in 2024?

Fortunately, we still don’t have to wait long for the next iPads, because Gurman expects a release in April. He expects the tablets will probably appear in stores at the end of next month, but the devices could be announced earlier. There is therefore a good chance that we will see a new press release from Apple in early or mid-April, unveiling the new iPads.

We will then see no fewer than four new models, because both the iPad Pro and the iPad Air will be released in two versions. With the iPad Pro we again see an 11- and 12.9-inch version. Apple is also releasing the iPad Air with a larger screen for the first time. This means that you can choose between a 10.9-inch and 12.9-inch display on the tablet. This means that a total of four new models will appear!

New design and relocated camera

Apple is making major changes, especially to the iPad Pro, because the tablet is getting a new design. The casing is reportedly much thinner and the front camera is being moved. Apple also provides the new tablet with the fast M3 chip, which we already see in the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. The biggest change: both Pro models switch to an OLED screen.

We expect fewer major adjustments with the iPad Air. Here too, the front camera is moved to the long side of the tablet, making it easy to hold the device horizontally during FaceTime calls, for example. In addition, the rear camera has a flash for the first time. Curious about the next generation of tablets?
