Apple Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro
Todd Haselton | CNBC
According to Apple, Apple could release new iPads as early as April a report in Bloomberg.
The new iPads will be part of Apple’s high-end iPad Pro range and could feature improved cameras, a faster processor, and a new type of mini-LED display on the largest iPad with improved brightness and contrast.
Otherwise, they look similar to the current 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad pros, according to the report. Apple’s current 11-inch iPad Pro costs $ 799 and the larger model starts at $ 999.
The report comes as Apple’s iPad business was boosted by people looking for computers that can work and play from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. For the last vacation quarter, Apple posted iPad sales of $ 8.4 billion, up more than 42% year over year.
Apple usually releases most of its new products, including iPhones, in the fall, but sometimes delivers less important product updates during a spring launch event. The Cupertino-based giant hasn’t announced a spring event this year.
Over the past few years, Apple has positioned its iPad Pro models as laptop replacements, including the introduction of mouse support and keyboard accessories like the Magic Keyboard for $ 299.
