The magazines and portals that are covering the matter are betting that Apple will ultimately opt for a ‘conservative’ update. The next iPads, those of the eleventh generation, may not differ much from those put on the market last year.

The list price starts from 449 dollars for the ‘basic’ version and it is not certain that the Californian company will not offer the same price tag. According to the indiscretion from Nikkei Asia, work is proceeding at a rapid pace by the Vietnamese partners, with a release date that could fall at this point in the second half of next year.

The final verification process and part of the quality control are already scheduled and should take place shortly, probably in mid-February 2024. The unmistakable signal that a release is actually approaching is that all resources have been ‘transferred’ to the next models. At least for the moment, however, it is not clear what the improvements could be that will modify the tenth generation iPad, which only recently hit the shelves, in October 2022.
