New iPad Pro 2022 variants may be announced in October, after the iPhone 14 series and Apple Watch Ultra. However, recent reports suggest they may not receive much media attention.
According to Bloomberg‘s weekly Power On newsletter, written by reliable Apple source Mark Gurman, the new iPad Pros will likely be announced through press release rather than during an event.
The 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 11-inch iPad Pro, according to Gurman, are both “very probable” to be released this year, but they won’t represent a “huge departure” for Apple and so don’t warrant a significant event.
They’ll reportedly use the recently announced M2 chipset and boast “enhanced specifications” without making any major changes.
According to Gurman, new Mac Minis and MacBook Pros are also expected, but they will employ the same M2 series of chipsets as the previously announced products and won’t be significant advancements in any other manner, so they probably won’t need an event of their own. Even if Apple releases a new Apple TV box, it won’t be a game changer for the company.
Gurman notes that Apple may feel differently, so an event is still possible, and informed estimate rather than inside information supports the usage of press releases rather than an event for these goods. The items themselves, however Apple decides to introduce them, are not likely to be particularly interesting enhancements.
No new iPad standard
Gurman has listed many goods expected to be released in 2022, but the iPad Pro 2022 wasn’t one of them.
Many sources, including Gurman, projected a new entry-level iPad would be released before the end of the year. Gurman may have forgotten to include it, or they may no longer expect it before 2023.

Assuming it does launch this year, rumours have it releasing in October, simultaneously with the new iPad Pros. There may be a delay until you can get this low-priced tablet if it doesn’t show up in October.
