Release of new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models reportedly pushed to May or June
Apple is widely expected to hold a media event next month to announce new iPads and perhaps refreshed iMacs and other products. A new report from Digitimes reiterates much of what we already know about Apple's planned iPad refresh, including the launch of new 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and 12.9-inch models.
The report notes, however, that the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch models may not ship until May or June…
The report cites industry sources who claim that the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inh iPad Pro models won't actually hit retail shelves until May or June, thus affecting the performance of supply chain companies like TPK Holding, General Interface Solution, and Foxconn.
Originally, the plan was for three new iPads to be released in the first quarter of 2017, but the delay for the new iPad Pro models pushes them into the second quarter.
