If new information circulating the internet is to be believed, then we have new iPads to look forward to. According to a tweet by CoinX, we can look forward to a 10.2-inch and 10.5-inch iPad. These will not be a part of the pro-family, but of the standard iPad family. In his tweet, CoinX also says that both the iPad will not launch at the same time. The tweet reads, “Both iPad 7 (10.2”) and the “new” iPad (10.5”, non-Pro) are coming. But not at the same time.” CoinX has gotten Apple information right in the past. He revealed the names of the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR before the launch of the smartphones. The upcoming two iPads will not be a part of the Pro family of iPads.
The 10.2-inch iPad is expected to replace the 9.7-inch iPad that Apple launched last year. It still isn't clear what segment the 10.5-inch iPad will target as the difference in screen size between the 10.2 and 10.5-inch is so little. The current portfolio of Apple’s iPads includes the 7.9-inch iPad mini and the 9.7-inch iPad. In the Pro family, we have the 10.5-inch, 11-inch and 12.9-inch screens size options.
Some information circulating the internet suggests that the 10.5-inch iPad will have a similar frame to the 10.2-inch iPad but will reduce a bezel and introduce a notch as we have seen on the iPhone X.
Apple has an upcoming event on March 25 but we don't think the iPad’s will make a debut then. The March 25 event is expected to showcase Apple’s foray into the streaming service business. You can read more about our expectations from the 25 March Apple event here.
