We’ve been anticipating the release of the new Apple iPad before the end of the year, and now one of Apple’s closest accessory partners may have confirmed that a new Pro model is on the way.
our friends are 9to5Mac (opens in new tab) It’s been noted that Logitech now says its Crayon Digital Pencil will work with two as yet unannounced iPad Pro models.If this reflects a future product, it means an update iPad Pro 12.9 inches and 11-inch iPad Pro Tablets may appear soon.
On Crayon’s Logitech website, it lists compatible devices, including the “6th generation” iPad Pro 12.9 and the “4th generation” 11-inch iPad Pro. The larger iPad Pro is currently the fifth generation, and the 11-inch model is the third generation, so this seems to be a hint for the next-gen device. We’ve already nailed the launch of the new iPads in October, so it’s no surprise to see these models on the water around the end of September. It’s even more surprising to see a trusted partner leak information.
Samsung uses technology developed by Wacom S Pen stylus and is therefore compatible with many third-party accessory manufacturers. Apple uses proprietary technology for its Apple Pencil, and Logitech is currently the only third party licensed to manufacture the Pencil for use with Apple screens. Other stylus devices for the iPad are nothing more than a finger pointer with a tip that displays on a capacitive screen. They don’t take advantage of the accuracy and advanced features of Apple technology like the Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil.Crayons are one of our favorites Apple Pencil Alternative.
Will they be Pro like the iPhone 14 Pro?
It will be very exciting to see new iPad Pro devices as Apple unveils the next-generation chipset found only in iPhone Pro devices in its A16 Bionic platform. Maybe Apple is saving more of these chips for the Pro-grade iPad and wants to keep the Pro exclusivity. We’ll see when Apple finally makes an announcement next month.
We’re keeping a close eye on upcoming iPad announcements, and now the frenzy from the iPhone 14 series and Apple Watch Ultra releases is starting to calm down. If you’re interested in learning more about the current-generation iPads and all they can do, we’ll break them all down in our roundup of the best iPads.
Analysis: Someone is in big trouble
Before the iPhone’s launch, we got a flood of emails from case and accessory makers claiming they were ready for the next big thing, but they were just guessing. Apple is highly confidential. Even the most popular accessory maker brands don’t know the exact details of a new product until the last minute, often after an announcement has been made.
Logitech has a special status, though, because it’s an exclusive partner for Apple’s own technology. There are very few third-party companies that Apple trusts in this way. Even the smallest breach of trust can have repercussions across the enterprise. A small mistake on a website might seem like the smallest mistake, but Apple might see it as a lax attitude across the enterprise to protect its corporate secrets. The company has a great reputation in all areas of technology.
