But when will we get a new iPad?

There were some who were a little disappointed last week during the Apple Special Media Event, and that’s in large part because there was some expectation of a new iPad model being announced.

 

It was not.

 

So will we be getting a new iPad any time soon?

 

Well folks, looks like the answer is yes. 

 

It appears as though the release of iOS 12.1 has given some small hints that lead us to the release of a new 2018 Fall iPad, one with a TrueDepth camera which means that you could sync your Memoji between your iPhone and your iPad – a feature that is now possible thanks to iOS 12.1.

 

 

The good guys over at 9To5Mac additionally noticed that when looking at the Setup app, which is the app that runs when you set up a new device, there was a new identifier for a “2018 fall” iPad. The previous version of the app only included identifiers for the 2018 iPhones.

 

So, looks like we’ll be seeing a new iPad at an October Apple Event, as well as possibly some new Macs. Rumors suggest the new iPads will most likely be iPad Pros that will feature USB-C connectivity instead of Lightning.
