Apple could be planning to launch an iPad Pro with an M2 chip in fall this year. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, in his Power On newsletter, goes on to say that Apple’s newest iPad offering could see a major overhaul, and could also see support for MagSafe charging.
iPad Pro Rumoured Features
Apple had launched the latest iPad Air at its Peek Performance event this month, but a refreshed iPad Pro was nowhere to be seen. It last saw a significant update back in 2018, flaunting a new design with sharper corners, edge-to-edge display, as well as a USB-C connector. Then in May 2021, Apple launch the iPad Pro with the M1 processor. Gurman speculates that the Cupertino-based company could be all set to launch the latest model any time between September and November this year.

Back in December last year, the Apple analyst had predicted that this year’s iPad Pro could feature wireless charging capabilities as well as a glass backing. 9to5Mac’s sources agreed with most of his claims, but said that the iPhone maker could go for an aluminium back with a glass Apple logo instead of a glass back design.
M2 Chip Predictions
The tech sphere is rife with rumours about Apple’s upcoming M2 chip as well. The M2 is based on the company’s newest A15 bionic chipset. Additionally, it will feature an eight-core CPU with four performance cores (codenamed “Avalanche”) along with four efficiency cores (internal name “Blizzard”). Its predecessor, the M1, also had the same number of CPU cores. However, the M2 will likely see a slight performance boost with a 10-core GPU.
Latest rumours hint that Apple could also be getting ready to launch the latest MacBook Air with an all-new design, M2 processor, MagSafe compatibility, and other features by the second half of 2022.
