Later this year, Apple is expected to release a new iPad Pro. The upcoming iPad Pro, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, will most likely be powered by Apple’s M2 chip and will be released in “Fall 2022.” This is expected to be the first iPad Pro to include MagSafe support, allowing it to charge wirelessly.

The upcoming iPad Pro models, according to Gurman, will be powered by the M2 chip, which, like the M1, may have an 8-core CPU. The M2 chip will benefit from TMSC’s 4-nanometer process, which will improve speed and efficiency. Additional GPU cores are likely to be included, with 9- and 10-core GPU options. The GPU options on the M1 chip are 7- and 8-core.

This year, the iPad Pro is expected to be released alongside a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a 24-inch iMac, and a refreshed MacBook Air. The M2 chipset is also expected to power the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
“Along with giving the back of the iPad Pro a glass body, it is being said that Apple is now moving away from the aluminum body like the iPhone,” according to previous reports. With the iPhone, the company has gradually begun to provide a glass body on the back. Apple is rumored to be testing a wireless charging system similar to MagSafe for the iPad Pro 2022, which will be significantly slower than wired charging. The report cautions that speculation about the development of Apple’s new iPad Pro is premature, implying that “these features can be avoided even before the final resale.”
For the uninitiated, Apple recently announced that the production of the iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone SE 2022 will be reduced by 20%. According to the report, this is the first sign of the Ukraine crisis affecting a major technology company.
