New iPad Rumours: Prices, Specs and Release Date

We can now say goodbye to iPad Pro 2021 rumours and focus on the iPad Pro rumours circling about the new 2022 release! We’ll be looking at potential prices, release dates and the rumoured features we can’t wait to see if they make an appearance next year!

When will the new iPad be released?

According to new iPad rumours, the iPad Pro (2022) could follow the same pattern as the recent iPad Pro (2021) which was launched in April 2021 and then released in May 2021

However, if we look back at recent years, the iPad release dates have staggered and there doesn’t seem to be a set month like there is for the iPhone. For example:

iPad Pro 2018 released November 2018

iPad Pro 2019 released March 2020

iPad Pro 2020 released May 2021 

We could possibly see the new iPad Pro launch and be released in the first half of 2022 but there isn’t any concrete evidence. In the meantime, we’ll just have to wait!

How much will the new iPad cost?

There’s been no mention of the pricing of the new iPad Pro (2022). Apple does occasionally tweak the pricing of the iPad Pro but not dramatically, as the Pro range is already a premium tablet.

Current prices give us a slight indication of the possible price point for the upcoming iPad Pro range, for example:

iPad Pro 12.9 (2020) £969

iPad Pro 11 (2020) £769

iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) £999

iPad Pro 11 (2021) £749

We expect that the next iPad Pro will have similar pricing but like the release date, we don’t have a definite answer. 

What features can we expect?

One of the main iPad rumours is that the 11-inch iPad Pro (2022) is expected to match the 12.9-inch models Mini-LED Display, after missing out in 2021. This upgrade is a big step from the standard LCD Display as it allows for more control over contrast and produces vibrant colours. 

Other iPad Pro rumours suggest the new iPad Pro models will have a glass back instead of aluminium, this could be for wireless charging which is a popular feature on the new iPhone range. 

Apple iPad rumours also suspect a new updated design is on its way but this may not apply to next year’s iPad Pro. 

In terms of processor, there are rumours a different M1 chipset will be featured in the 2022 iPad Pro. This could possibly be the M1 Pro or M1 Max chips, but there isn’t evidence for this yet. 

It’s even been suggested Apple may debut a next-gen M2 chip alongside the new iPad Pro range, but again this isn’t likely as it would be too soon to unveil a new chip as the M1 chipset has just been released.
