Any idea when the next regular iPad will come out? Thinking of buying my mom the base 10.2in that costs $329. She is using a 2012 3rd gen that is on its last legs. But I just don't want to buy it when it's almost a year old and a new one might come out right after.

Hold off if you can. iPad should be renewed in October. Could be at a 27 October event, which aTwitter leaker predicts. Looks like it will be come with a 10.8 inch screen and most likely reduced bezels.



The new iPad may be also be more affordable :-

"...Sales prospects for the new 10.8-inch iPad devices are also bright as the new lineup, which feature high performance CPUs, will be available at more affordable prices, the sources indicated...".

How could they sell an iPad with reduced bezels for $329 as it stands right now?
By taking less profit it on it. Apple seem to be adopting a policy of making entry level products more affordable. Like the iPhone SE, even though it has the latest processor. And the 23" / 24" ARM iMac is said to be more affordable when it arrives.

10.8 inch iPad is likely the Air which will look like the iPad Pro

my guess is the regular iPad will be updated to what the iPad air is now

I have been looking for the Ipad for few months now, still a clg student and apple doesn't give any students offer here in India.
On a tight budget.
the import tarrifs suck here, the 329$ ipad sells for 399$ here..

I want an Ipad with a more advanced processor say A12 or A13 and obviously not A10..

I can stretch my budget for Air 3 but thats pretty much it, I wont be able to get the logitech keyboard and apple pencil there on,

At the same time I love how nicely pro devices are build up, pro devices are way way out of my budget, there is no market for refurbished ipads in India, you either buy a new one the used 1-2 yrs old ipads,

I dont personally like buying used devices so i ll go with the new one

anyway I would like 8th gen Ipad to have atleast A12 processor and price wont matter then..
yeah if by any chance they keep Air's price same as well and give it pro motion with current A12 processor, I will surely spend extra money for pro motion, although I have never personally used 120hz dispay but the feedback and user experience people have with that screen makes me get it even more..

I hope they launch it asap, I dont care when it starts shipping I have no urgent work with it, I am more interested in knowing what all upgrades apple is planning to pack Ipad 8th/ Air 4 with

I’m thinking the 10.8 is the air. The iPad 8 will get the A12 and everything else will stay the same. They will sell it for $299.
