Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 15 lineup on September 12. The company is also rumored to launch the iPad Air 6 with an M2 chip in October. The iPad mini 7 and M3 iPad Pro models may be announced at a later date.
Apple is reportedly planning to launch the iPad Air 6 in October 2023, according to a new rumor. The new tablet is said to be powered by the M2 chip, which is the successor to the M1 chip that powers the current iPad Air.
Apple had previously planned to host another event in October or November to announce the new M3 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models. However, it is now rumored that the company will only update the iPad Air lineup this year.
The M2 chip is expected to offer significant performance improvements over the M1 chip, making the iPad Air 6 a more powerful tablet. This could make it a more attractive option for users who need a tablet for demanding tasks such as video editing and gaming.
In addition to the M2 chip, the iPad Air 6 is also rumored to feature a 10.9-inch display, a 12MP front-facing camera, and a 12MP rear-facing camera. It is also possible that the tablet will have a slightly thinner design than the current iPad Air.
The iPad Air 6 is expected to be priced similarly to the current iPad Air, which starts at $599. It will be a mid-range tablet that competes with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and the Microsoft Surface Pro 8.
The launch of the iPad Air 6 will come just a few months after the launch of the iPhone 15 lineup. Apple is also expected to launch new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models in October 2023.
Here are some of the key details of the rumored iPad Air 6:
- Powered by the M2 chip
- 10.9-inch display
- 12MP front-facing camera
- 12MP rear-facing camera
- Thinner design
- Priced similarly to the current iPad Air
The iPad Air 6 could be launched via a press release, following a short video of the product in action. It is possible that the iPad mini 7 will also be announced at the same time. iPad mini 7 is rumored to get updated internals and will have an A17 Bionic chip based on 3nm fabrication.
These are just rumors at this stage, and Apple has not yet confirmed any of these plans. The company is also rumored to be working on a new AirPods Pro version with a USB-C charging case.
