KEY POINTS

  • Apple is said to release the new 12-inch iPad Pro this March
  • Apple suppliers confirm to be working on it
  • It will replace the middle end 11-inch iPad Pro if revealed and released

Apple is said to have been making the next 12-inch iPad Pro as found from the company’s suppliers. However, the company has revealed scant details about its release and the coronavirus outbreak has slowed down progress of many businesses worldwide. When will Apple release the next 12-inch iPad Pro?

Insider information from company suppliers confirm that Apple would be releasing the next iPad Pro this coming March as Digitimes reports. The delivery for these new iPads will be slow in March but will ramp up this April. The March delay has been attributed to the coronavirus outbreak in which many companies would not risk many of its staff and customers to the virus.

Moreover, the suppliers confirm that the 12-inch iPad Pro would be equipped with a triple-lens camera with a Time of Flight 3D feature. The new iPad Pro’s design is in line with the company’s interest to improve its standing in the tablet market.

The 12-inch iPad Pro is also going to be made not as a downgrade to the upper-end iPad Pro but as an improvement to its lower end offers. The 11-inch iPad Pro units would be retired to give way for the upsized 12-inch iPad Pro. The new lineup would be the 10.2-inch, the new 12-inch, and the upper end 12.9-inch iPad Pro if the new unit does get announced in March. Apple has already done this practice in previous years as they update their offers through increasing the screen size of their products

In March, Apple will have an event that will reveal its new devices and services for early 2020. However, Apple has yet to show any details of its reveals in this event. For now, fans will have to wait if the 12-inch iPad Pro does get released this March or later.
