Evidence Suggests New iPad Pro Is Breathtakingly Near, With A New Apple Pencil

(Source: forbes.com)

There were eyebrows raised at Apple’s recent event in Cupertino on September 12. What, people asked, no new iPad Pro? It now looks like there’ll be another special event from Apple, later this month and expectations are high that there’ll be a new iPad Pro with the most powerful Apple processor ever in it. It’ll have a striking new design, different connectors and Face ID, rumors suggest. And maybe there’ll also be a new MacBook, AirPods 2 and the AirPower charging pad.

Now, there’s more evidence that an iPad Pro is very nearly here, as revealed by MacRumors.

The registration of new items at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in China has noted the addition of three numbers, A1876, A1980 and A1993. The first two have already been spotted earlier in the year when they were filed with the Eurasian Economic Commission, but the third code is new.

Other numbers were registered with the EEC back in July, suggesting more variants, probably differences of capacity and connectivity options. But the A1993 code is new which suggests that release of the new mystery devices is imminent.

And there’s more.

There’s one more item, listed as a Bluetooth device. Well, that’s not very specific, but given the context there’s a strong possibility that it’s something which will wirelessly connect to the iPad Pro.

Given the fact that the entry-level iPad now has Apple Pencil connectivity, this seems the perfect moment to introduce Apple Pencil 2.

The current Pencil has Bluetooth connectivity but this may point to a new stylus which doesn’t require you to plug the Pencil into the tablet to connect it. I mean, that’s not such an inelegant way to do it, but I suspect Apple would jump at the chance of upgrading the Pencil.

If rumors of an October 30 (or thereabouts) event turn out to be true, we only have a couple of weeks to find out the truth.
