Bloomberg: Apple will cancel the October presentation of the new iPad and MacBook Pro
According to the latest news from well-known insider Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple will not be hosting the October event this year. Instead, the company will simply start selling new devices.
Recall that usually after the September presentation of new iPhones and smart watches, the company also holds a press conference in October, at which it introduces the new iPad and MacBook Pro.
Two new tablets are expected to debut this year, namely the iPad 10 and iPad Pro 2022. The affordable iPad 10 may keep the Home button, but the bezel will be smaller. Inside, the Apple A14 single-chip system is expected, and the interface will be replaced with USB-C.
The iPad Pro 2022 will get Apple’s latest M2 platform, MagSafe magnetic wireless charging, but the 11-inch version will still not use the Mini LED display.
New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro/Max processors are also expected.
The mysterious Google Pixel Tablet will be quite large
The characteristics of the Pixel tablet, which the company showed earlier at its event, appeared on the Web.
Pixel Tablet will appear only next year, and it is not known exactly when. Google itself did not share details. But now we know that the tablet will be equipped with a 10.95-inch screen, 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, Wi-Fi 6 module and, probably, the second or third generation Tensor SoC, depending on when the device will be released on market.
There were also rumors earlier that the Pixel Tablet would be the first device to run exclusively on 64-bit Android 13, meaning it would be impossible to install 32-bit software on it.
