New iPad Pro may not ship until April at the earliest

The rumor: Apple’s iPad Pro will not be launching in March after all, according to DigiTimes (65.1% accurate).

  • The new report suggests “volume shipments” won’t start until the second quarter of 2021 (April-June) at the earliest, a significant delay from the late March timeframe they reported last week
  • Apple’s next iPad Pro is said to be equipped with a chip as fast as M1, and feature 5G connectivity alongside an all-new Mini-LED display

Our take: DigiTimes flip-flopping on the release of this iPad Pro in just under a week lends credence to the fact that something at Apple changed last minute. We have no idea why, but it doesn’t appear that we are getting this new iPad Pro in March, after all.
