‘iPad Pro’ now rumored for September 9 event with iPad mini 4; pre-orders in October, November ship date
Up until this point, the majority of reports and rumors had suggested that while Apple was indeed hard at work on a large “iPad Pro,” the tablet wouldn’t be making an appearance on this year’s September media event.
Apple’s next-generation iPhones are expected to be ever so slightly thicker to accommodate Force Touch and to prevent another “bendgate,” but it seems that won’t be the case for the new iPad mini. Leaked CAD design drawings of the iPad mini 4 hint at a thinner device measuring just 6.1mm.
