Watch Apple show off new iPads right here at the iPad event of 2024

Despite the upcoming WWDC event being more than a month away, Apple surprised us with yet another event. On Tuesday, May 7 at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET, the company will reveal the newest enhancements to the iPad lineup. As per the grapevine, the speculated lineup comprises a fresh iPad Pro, an iPad Air, an Apple Pencil, and a keyboard case.

In a rather unexpected turn of events, the upcoming event might witness the introduction of the latest M4 chip, just a little over half a year since the company revealed three brand new M3 chips all at once. What is the reason for the rapid silicon refresh? It seems that Apple faced some delays in launching the M3, possibly due to supply chain issues. As a result, they had to unveil all three chips together at the same event.

When considering the rumors of Microsoft unveiling its own third-party silicon at Build in May, it becomes clear why the company chose not to delay. An announcement may be even more urgent, considering that the Microsoft/ARM chips are rumored to provide top-notch performance—a clear challenge to Apple. Could the introduction of a new chip potentially lead to the release of new Macs? That could be a relatively quick refresh cycle for the current crop, but it is definitely within the realm of possibility.

It appears likely that there will be a new iPad Pro featuring an OLED display, a 12.9-inch iPad Air, and some fresh gestures for the Apple Pencil. Additionally, anticipate a significant amount of artificial intelligence discussion. It’s already 2024, after all. Tune in to the live stream below and stay updated with the latest news.
