The first 5G iPhone will make its debut this fall despite the chaos caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic. Some reports claim that Apple is not on time; however, the general consensus is that the iPhone 12 will be out before the end of the year, even when it comes slightly later than its expected September release date. However, it seems that the primary 5G iPad may have a different fate.
Apple has determined to postpone the launch of its 12.9-inch 5G iPad Pro from the second half of this year to the spring of 2021. Initially, rumors suggested that Apple would launch a new iPad Pro model in the spring and a second in the fall.
In addition to being the first Apple tablet to help 5G cellular networking, the late 2020 iPad Pro was anticipated to feature mini-LED display technology and an A14 processor to match the performance of next-generation iPhone models as well. The model that was announced in March had a few notable upgrades, including a brand new dual-lens camera system, a LiDAR Scanner, studio-quality mics, and a faster A12Z Bionic chip, but it was more of a refresh than the introduction of a new generation. Now, that new technology seemingly won’t roll out in 2020.
While the size of the next iPad Pro model means that the design will be similar, the technological enhancements shall be noteworthy. 5G has yet to completely penetrate the global market, the early returns have been impressive. Carriers have achieved maximum download speeds of well over 1 Gbps, which means that people can doubtlessly download files on their iPad faster on a cellular connection than on the home internet.
