Apple may have a surprise iPad update announcement in store for this week. 9to5Mac initially said it corroborated a report from Supercharged that Apple will announce spec bumps for three of its iPads — the base model, the iPad Air, and the iPad Mini.
However, MacRumors points out that the Japanese blog Macotakara reports a more likely announcement is a third-generation Apple Pencil instead of new versions of the tablets. Since then, 9to5Mac said its sources indicate only “something” iPad-related is landing this week.
In a story Sunday morning for Bloomberg, Mark Gurman said, “I don’t believe updates of any significance are imminent,” while also mentioning Apple has versions of the iPads with new chips in development.
