What about 5G?
One thing that’s conspicuously missing from today’s announcement is 5G support, which we had previously heard might be coming to the iPad Pro this year. There’s no mention of this at all on the cellular-capable iPad Pro models, which presumably still sport the same LTE technology as the prior versions.
That said, it’s not at all outside the realm of possibility that we could still see 5G iPad Pros later this year. We’ve already heard reports that the 5G iPad Pro wasn’t launching at all until this fall, and while it’s extremely unlikely that Apple will release another big update, it could quietly refresh these new iPad Pros to add 5G support when it debuts the 5G-capable iPhone 12. So if you’re looking to buy a cellular iPad Pro and really want 5G, it might be worth waiting to see what comes next, but if you’re content with the Wi-Fi or LTE models, it’s very unlikely they’ll see any other updates before 2021.
