At the September conference, Apple launched the iPhone 14 series, AirPods Pro 2 and other products, but the new iPad and Mac were nowhere to be seen.
A few days ago, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman gave the latest reliable news, saying,Apple will release a new generation of 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros in the next few days.
It is reported that the new tablets, codenamed J617 and J620 respectively, are an update of the top iPad product line since April last year. At that time, the main upgrades were the M1 chip and the 12.9-inch mini LED backlit display.
This time,The new iPad Pro will iterate to the M2 processor, and the 11-inch version will also be equipped with a mini LED display for the first time。
The Apple M2 is based on an improved TSMC second-generation 5nm process (M1 uses TSMC’s first-generation 5nm process), and the number of transistors has increased by 25%, from 16 billion to 20 billion; its CPU core is an 8-core design, consisting of 4 1 high-speed core + 4 high-efficiency cores, and M2 adds 2 GPU cores compared to M1.
Design-wise, the new iPad Pro will be similar to the current model, with no major changes expected. In addition, the new iPad Pro will also support the Magsafe wireless charging function and reverse wireless charging in some form, that is, to recharge the iPhone and AirPods after they are fitted in a fixed position.
It is a little regrettable that Apple does not plan to hold a press conference this time, but directly introduces the new product in the form of an online press release. It is worth noting that there is no mention of the iPad 10 this time; as for the MacBook Pro, it will have to wait until the November update, and the CPU will enable M2 Pro and M2 Max.
