iPad Pro Might be Announced at September 9 Event ➝

It’s worth pointing out that Mark Gurman references his sources as “whispers within Apple” and qualifies the rumor by noting that “it is possible that Apple could still hold back the larger iPad for an early October event.” John Paczkowski, in a piece from early August, seemed similarly hesitant about an iPad Pro announcement at next week’s event refering to it as a “wildcard.” I think it’s safe to say we will be getting an iPad Pro, it’s just a matter of when.

I predicted that Apple would be announcing the iPad Pro at an event in October when I wrote, what I affectionately refer to as, my “If I get any of this right, I’ll be just as surprised as you” predictions article. I obviously would prefer they wait until October — who doesn’t want to be right? — but whether Apple plans on announcing the iPad next week or not, this event is shaping up to be an exciting one.
