Apple Set to Unveil Trio of iPads: Entry-Level, iPad mini 7, and iPad Air 6
October 17 Announcement Expected for Long-Awaited iPad Updates
Reliable sources suggest that Apple is gearing up for a significant announcement this coming Tuesday, October 17, with updates expected for three iPad models: the entry-level iPad, the iPad mini 7, and the iPad Air 6. The initial tip came from Supercharged, and this information has been corroborated by sources speaking to 9to5Mac. Given the considerable buzz surrounding these tablets in recent speculation, it appears highly likely that these new models will make their debut soon.
First in line for an update is the entry-level iPad. Its last refresh was in 2022 when it embraced the iPad Pro design by bidding farewell to the home button. Consequently, this time around, we shouldn’t anticipate dramatic design changes. While specifics regarding the new base iPad model have been scarce, “spec upgrades” are certainly in the cards for a model of this nature. Expectations include support for Apple Pencil 2 and enhanced battery life.
