The release of iPadOS 16.1 seems to be close, and it seems that Apple can repay the wait with the arrival of a new iPad. Indeed Mark Gurman Bloomberg has made it known that the operating system is expected to arrive on October 24with the possibility of seeing the tenth generation of iPad entry-level e iPad Pro con M2.
iPadOS 16.1 on the way, perhaps alongside 10th generation iPads
In August, Apple announced that iPadOS 16 would be arriving in lag compared to iOS 16, the new iPhone operating system. Something not unprecedented, but certainly unusual. In fact it seems that the apple will directly launch the version 16.1, probably because he had to fix something in the initial update, not considered ready for the public.
Gurman, however, makes it known that October 24 should announce the news. And the On the 27th of the month, Apple will hold a meeting with shareholders to announce the new financial results. Since it has already launched products in the past week that it met with shareholders (MacBook Pro last year and iPhone 12 in 2020), it could do the same this year.
The big one this year could be 10th generation iPad, which should bring a new chip (A14 Bionic), 5G support and USB-C port. All welcome news, but not enough to hold a live event in style: analysts expect Apple to announce it with a press release.
But it also looks like Apple may be announcing a new iPad Pro, this time featuring the faster M2 chip. And maybe by the end of the year models from 14 and 16 inch MacBook Prowith faster versions of M2 (probably Pro and Max).
Instead for the more substantial innovations, in particular the Mac Pro with Apple Silicon chips and the augmented / virtual reality setwe will have to wait until 2023.
