Apple said to release new iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad accessories in early May

If you’ve been waiting for new iPads, Apple’s new iPad Pro, iPad Air, Magic Keyboard, and an Apple Pencil are on schedule for early May, according to Bloomberg News.
Mark Gurman for Bloomberg News:


Altogether, this launch is shaping up to be one of the biggest updates to the Apple tablet in a single day. And it’s a long time coming, especially for the iPad Pro. That model hasn’t had a meaningful refresh since 2018.
For those looking for more specific timing, I’m told the launch will probably happen the week of May 6…
the new lineup should bring a sales boost, but I’m not sure it will solve the iPad’s broader challenges. As someone who often uses a Mac and iPhone — and now a Vision Pro for watching videos — I find the iPad increasingly pointless. The device isn’t good enough to entirely replace a Mac for day-to-day work, and its software still leaves a lot to be desired. Here’s hoping that iPadOS 18 is a big improvement and the device can become a true Mac alternative.

MacDailyNews Take: It’s good to have hopes and dreams, but those who value life shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for Tim Cook’s Apple to magically fix what ails iPad in its 18th OS version.

Software aside, the hardware upgrades to the new iPads represent some of the biggest changes in the product’s history. For the first time, Apple will be moving its tablet screens over to OLED, or organic light-emitting diode, a standard that the iPhone already uses. The technology apparently looks amazing on such large displays — taking what iPhone users have experienced since 2017 to a whole new level. One drawback to the shift: The new models will likely come at higher price points, I’m told. Today’s iPad Pro starts at $799.
