iPad 8 to receive minor update at September 15 event

The leak: Alongside new Apple Watches and a redesigned iPad Air, Apple will also be updating the cheapest iPad later this week, according to Kang (95% accurate).

  • A new A12 processor will provide a significant upgrade from the current-gen A10 Fusion chip
  • The display size will remain at 10.2-inches

Our take: This Weibo source nailed a ton of leaks ahead of WWDC which almost never happens. I’m not sure where they’re getting this intel from, but last time it was spot-on.

Thanks to DuanRui for spotting these posts on Weibo.
