Gurman previously said updated 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models would be announced “in a matter of days, and he has since narrowed down the timeframe to tomorrow. The announcement will likely occur in the form of an Apple Newsroom press release.

Key new features rumored for the iPad Pro include the same M2 chip as found in the MacBook Air and MagSafe wireless charging support. No major design changes are expected for the iPad Pro this year, suggesting the update will be a minor spec bump.

Apple is also rumored to be planning a new 10th-generation entry-level iPad with a larger 10.5-inch display, a USB-C port, flat edges, an A14 Bionic chip, 5G support for cellular models, and potentially a Touch ID power button and a landscape FaceTime camera. However, it’s unclear if this device will also be announced tomorrow.

Gurman expects iPadOS 16 to be released to the public next week.
