According to a recent rumor, it was suggested that Apple could unveil their third-gen iPhone SE with support for 5G this coming March. Given that Apple more often than not hosts an event in the earlier part of the year, it makes sense that they would unveil it then. However, it turns out that it won’t be the only device Apple will be announcing.
In a report from Macotakara, the publication claims that according to a reliable source, apparently Apple is expected to introduce the iPad Air 5 alongside the iPhone SE this coming Spring. The iPad Air is definitely due for a refresh because back in 2021, the only iPads that Apple updated were the iPad Pro where they gave it the M1 chipset, and the iPad mini that got a much-deserved update.
The iPad Air 4 was launched in September 2020, which means that it is definitely due for an upgrade so choosing to launch it in Spring makes sense instead of having to wait until September later this year. The report claims that Apple has not made any changes to the design of the tablet and that hardware wise, it will be similar to the iPad mini which means the A15 Bionic chipset and support for 5G.
Obviously we have no way to confirm if this report is true, so we’ll just have to wait and see over the coming weeks for more information and hopefully evidence that a new iPad Air tablet is in the works. In the meantime, those who are thinking of getting the iPad Air, maybe holding off for the next couple of months might be a good idea.
