Apple updated its lineup of flagship products including the iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch at its Far Out event on September 7, but refrained from revealing any models for the iPad.
Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to announce two new iPad Pro tablets equipped with the latest M2 chip under the hood “within days,” according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman noted in his newsletter that the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models of the iPad Pro will be easily upgraded and will have new charging capabilities.
The iPad Pro is expected to be released before October 27, when Apple will report its quarterly and annual earnings.
Unlike what was used as a mega launch event, much to the dismay of fans, no event is planned for this launch – the iPad will be unveiled with a press release on the company’s website.
Gurman even speculated that the next iPad Pro will support reverse wireless charging, which would allow the tablet to share its battery with an iPhone or AirPods case. The new iPad Pro may also include MagSafe charging capabilities.

There will also be the release of iPadOS 16, a software update that is usually released alongside iOS but has been pushed back this year. The iPad Pro is expected to be released by October.
Gurman claims that the band, not the actual gadget, is to blame for the Apple Watch Ultra’s lack of stock. Both the Orange Alpine Cycle and the Yellow or Blue Trail are very hard to find.
Because of this, Watch Ultra shipments are currently delayed until the first week of November, with some models arriving even later.
