Apple iPad Pro 2 release date delayed? Specs and features update

The second video showed that the tablet will not be infected by PC viruses, while the third one shared that basic, essential apps like "Microsoft Word" can easily be downloaded in the iPad Pro and that the device is compatible with the Apple Pencil. Several reports have suggested that the Cupertino firm could even announce iPad Pro 2 - in 12.9 and all-new 10.5-inch sizes - this March, alongside a new 9.7-inch iPad Air and 7.9-inch iPad mini.

The 10.5-inch model, a new form factor for Apple, could come with a wafer thin bezel and in a very similar size to the 9.7-inch version as a result. Unfortunately, this will affect the first-quarter sales of supply chain makers, which is not that good for them.

Both the larger iPad Pro 2 slates should come packed with a speedy A10X processor, while their smaller sibling will likely use an A9 chip. The iPad Pro 2 is said to be released along with the new beta iOS 10.3 update.

Apple has pushed back the launch date of the next generation of iPad Pros to later this year, it has been claimed.

Apple has always been secretive about its plans but reports from various reputable sources may be able to confirm what the company intends to do with the iPad refreshes. The display unit of the 9.7-inch iPad will be made by Seoul Semiconductor thatt ousts the current supplier.

Despite the increasing belief that the iPad Air range might have died already, speculations appear that Apple may be designing an iPad Air 3 which could be budget-friendly but will offer features like True Tone, IP68 and 3D Touch among others.

Earlier this month Apple CEO Tim Cook also stated, "we've got some exciting things coming on iPad, and I am optimistic about where things are headed".
