A new report from 9to5Mac suggests that Apple may in fact debut the long-rumored “iPad Pro” during next week’s event, although the new larger tablet is still not expected to be available until November. Sources indicate that Apple plans to ship the new iPad in November, with it expected to be available for pre-order in late October. There has allegedly been some discussion within Apple indicating that the company may reveal the new iPad during next week’s event — however, this has not yet been confirmed and sources have also indicated that it is still possible that it could be held back for an October event. It also apparently remains unclear whether Apple will be able to source enough components to meet the demand expected by the enterprise market for the larger device.
The report also reveals that a new fourth-generation iPad mini would also be revealed alongside the iPad, but suggests that this may be tied to whether Apple chooses to announce the larger version next week. A third-generation version of the iPad Air is not expected to be revealed, as sources indicate it’s planned for a 2016 release.
