New 10.5 and 12.9 iPads to hit the shelves in May or June

Everyone expected Apple to announce three new iPads in the beginning of 2017 but it looks like we might need to wait a little longer. We already heard Apple tablets will arrive in the summer and now new reports confirm that info – the 10.5 and 12.9 iPad will arrive in May.

Insiders from TPK Holding, Foxconn and General Interface Solution spoke of delayed production and release of three new iPads. The plan for Apple was to announce a 9.7 entry-level iPad with A9 CPU, a new 10.5 iPad and an upgraded 12.9 iPad Pro, the latter two powered by the upgraded A10X.

As for what we can expect with the new iPads, an investor note from KGI claimed that the 12.9 iPad Pro would be an iterative update over the first generation model. The spotlight will actually be reserved for the new 10.5 device with narrow bezels and thus similar in size to the 9.7.

The Cupertino-based company sold 42.5 million iPads last year in shrinking market and the long-awaited launch could boost the numbers for Apple.
