In line with the most recent report about how the long-time rumoured iPad Pro could turn into reality by November, a new 9To5Mac report sings to the similar tune. Citing ‘trusted sources’, the report claims that the Apple is all set to unveil the iPad Pro and a refreshed iPad mini version on September 9 along with the new iPhones and an Apple TV.
Citing sources related to the matter, the report further adds that the larger iPad will go with the same name as it will be made available for pre-order in October (most probably a separate launch event in October) and finally start shipping by November.
However, the report claims that Apple may still choose to hold the lager iPad and not launch it at the recent events, given its November sipping date. It should be noted that rumours around Apple working on a large 12-inch iPad, the alleged iPad Pro, have been doing the rounds since late 2013.
“Following recent announcements of Apple iOS enterprise collaborations with Cisco and IBM, sufficient component availability to meet anticipated year-end demand appears to be the only question mark at this point,” adds the report.
The iPad mini 4 will be a thinner version of the existing iPad mini with faster A-series chip, support for split screen apps and upgraded camera. The iPad pro reportedly codenamed ‘J98/J99′ will run iOS 9.1 and support Force Touch based stylus. It will also include speakers on two sides, adds the report. iOS 9.1 will also mean additional tweaks such as optimised Siri and Notification centre.
This year, the Cupertino company is expected to launch the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. The company was also rumoured to launch a cheaper variant – iPhone 6c – at the event, but has reportedly changed its mind.
