We reported earlier that the iPhone SE 2 could be launched on a March 31 event, but it appears there might be some other hardware launched on the same day: The iPad Pro 2.
DigiTimes, a paywalled Taiwanese publication that focuses on production line news, claimed that “Apple is scheduled to launch its new iPad Pro series around March.” If this is true — which is a big if — then it’d make sense the company would announce it at the same event.
Rather than being an entry-level device aimed to attract as many people as possible, like the SE 2, the new iPad Pro (which starts at $799) firmly focuses on high-end power users.
It’s also an important bit of hardware for Apple generally. With the company recently launching iPadOS, the original iPad Pro is effectively that operating system‘s flagship device. If people are going to seriously give up a laptop and pick up a tablet instead, it’ll be the iPad Pro driving that change.
