With Apple’s WWDC developer’s conference inching closer, new rumors have sparked about the possible announcements at the conference. The WWDC event is scheduled on June 5th, with the Keynote beginning at 10 AM PDT. According to fresh leaks, now we know Apple might unveil four new iPad tablets at the conference among other things.
The WWDC conferences usually focus on software updates and keeping up with the tradition, Apple is planning to bring to light a bunch of new features and updates to the MacBook series. The new iOS 11 developer preview will also be announced and highlighted, come Monday.
However in addition to the software updates, the WWDC conference might take a slightly different turn this time. We were already made known that the company is planning to unveil the new Siri Speaker, Amazon Echo‘s rival, and we also know that the rumors of the 10.5 inch iPad Pro are finally going to be put to rest after its official announcement at the WWDC conference.
The news of the four new iPad tablets was shared on an online French forum that tipped the possibility of the four new iPad tablets to run on iOS 10. The French website also labeled the tablets in their model numbers – A1670, A1671, A1701 and A1709. Experts online have found it interesting that the model numbers seem to be in pairs and the new iPad tablets could actually be variants (maybe with cellular or non-cellular options) of two individual types instead of four altogether different models.
The website also lists Apple accessories that might as well be announced in the WWDC conference on Monday. The list of accessories includes the Apple wireless keyboard and some other devices, perhaps laptops, running on MacOS. There have also been rumors of Apple unveiling the Apple Pencil 2 in the conference alongside the four iPad tablets.
We do not know how much similarity the four new iPad tablets will bear to previous iPad models or if they are the much rumored variants of the 10.5 and 12.9 inch iPad Pro themselves. As always, Apple has managed to keep mum about their internet-breaking developments. The iPad Pro itself has had plenty leaks about it in the past few months that indicate it might have negligible bezels, stereo speakers and a Virtual Home Button. In other reports, the company is rumored to discontinue the iPad mini series.
We will finally know what Apple is up to in the WWDC developer’s conference on June 5th. Before that, we can only be so sure to what new announcements the company will make in the upcoming event. Are there going to be four new iPad tablets that will be unveiled in the WWDC conference, or is it just a misinterpretation of the iPad Pro announcement?
