Report: Four new iPad tablets are coming; here are their rumored names and color options



Just yesterday, we told you that four iPad Pro models were being tested in San Francisco and Cupertinoaccording to mobile marketing firm Fiksu. Today, a report out of Greece reveals the names of four new iPad models that will be offered soon by Apple. According to the report, these tablets will be called the Apple iPad Pro 9.7-inch 2, Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch, Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2 and the Apple iPad Mini Pro.

The 10.5-inch model is expected to feature thinner bezels, and both that tablet and the iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2 are said to feature the Apple A10X chip inside. The iPad Pro 9.7-inch 2 will reportedly be powered by the A9 chip, the same one that is found under the hood of the Apple iPhone 6s. The four tablets will be available in Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold, and each will come with 32GB/128GB / 256GB of native storage.

Currently, Apple has two versions of the iPad Pro available. There is the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Both models support the Apple Pencil and are powered by the A9X chip.

While there was hope that the new iPads would be unveiled as soon as next week (without a hullabaloo), it now appears as though the Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch model will not see the light of day until next month.
