2024 began with good feelings for the Apple iPad. We had been without new updated models for more than a year and everything seemed to indicate that the first quarter of the year was going to bring that presentation of new iPads that we all expected. In fact, large and popular analysts predicted the launch for the month of March… then the month of April was postponed and until now we have not heard any news. Everything seems to point to a delay added to Apple's schedule that places the new iPad Air and iPad Pro for the month of May according to analysis by Mark Gurman for Bloomberg.

A constant delay: the new iPad Air and iPad Pro, now for the month of May

Everyone is looking forward to the new ones iPad Air and iPad Pro since we have gone almost 20 months without any update from Apple. Devices that make up one of the most purchased and used ranges by users around the world. In addition, there is great unrest on the part of users who do not know whether to buy a device now or wait for the launch, without knowing when or in what form it will be, to buy the new iPad.

The information indicated that the presentation of the new iPad would take place at the beginning of March. However, it did not take place and Mark Gurman delayed the release to late March or early April. A new report published by the same analyst indicates that the release schedule has been delayed one more time and we will see the new devices in the month of May.

This delay is also accompanied by a delay in the development of the next major iPadOS update that would not be ready for the joint release of software + hardware. Furthermore, Gurman assures that Production of new iPads is increasing in recent weeks and it could be ready for the month of May. This delay, furthermore, would be due to an increase in manufacturing complexity of the new iPads. Remember that the main novelty expected in the iPad Air is a new 12.9-inch model while the iPad Pro will receive the M3 chip in addition to an OLED screen.
