Apple is reportedly gearing up to launch its upcoming iPad Pro line on October 18.

It is looking more likely that Apple will announce its newest entry into the iPad Pro line on Tuesday. The expected highlight feature is the addition of the M2 chip to the prosumer tablet.

Codenamed J617 and J620, the tablets are said to use the M2 chip, as many rumors and speculation have forecast as the most obvious upgrade. This will apparently provide an almost 20% speed boost over the M1 equivalent.

Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman has tweeted that he suspects the release “should be tomorrow.”

Speculation about the new iPad Pro models includes the addition of wireless charging with MagSafe, new smart connectors, and an upgrade bringing mini LED backlighting to the 11-inch model.
