Apple is expected to debut a new 10.2-inch iPad this year as a successor to the current entry-level 9.7-inch iPad. Other than the bump in display size, presumably due to slimmer bezels, there’s not a ton of rumors revealing what the new iPads could look like. But they’re likely to remain a cheaper option aimed at the education sector.
While Apple hasn’t debuted its entry-level iPads in September for some time, we could see a new iPad-related announcement at this year’s iPad event. Current supply chain reporting suggests that the iPad could debut in the third quarter of the year, which means that they’d have to be announced by the end of September.
