Apple has some announcements in store for today. The online Apple Store, which happens before new products are available to order, has gone down. Apple CEO Tim Cook also took to Twitter to spark some kind of “Take Note” advertisement.
New iPad announcements imminent
Apple is widely expected to announce new iPad Pros today, including new versions of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch devices with an M2 chip inside. Instead of holding an event to announce the new products, Apple is expected to reveal the new products through a press release. But that doesn’t stop the company from making a big splash.
The Apple Store dropped online this morning, with Apple saying: “Come back now. We’re making updates to the Apple Store. Confirm shortly.” An Apple Store not being contacted usually means that any new products it announces will be available to order on the same day.
Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook has also taken to Twitter to tease out a new announcement of sorts. Cook posted a 20-second video of someone repeatedly zooming in on the screen, revealing the “Take Note” logo. The accompanying tweet tweets: “The possibilities are endless.”
It should be noted that we are still waiting for the release of the new Freeform app for the iPad, which Apple first demonstrated at WWDC. The app is not included in either the beta version of iPadOS 16 or iPadOS 16.1.
Freeform, a powerful new collaborative app with a flexible panel, gives users the ability to see, share and collaborate in one place without worrying about layouts and page sizes, and with full Apple Pencil support. Users can view others’ contributions as they add content or make edits, all while enjoying a real-time collaboration space. Coming to iPadOS 16 later this year, Freeform lets collaborators start a FaceTime session and see updates from others directly in the thread.
Here is Tim Cook’s teaser:
As of now, there is no word on when exactly Apple will announce these new iPad Pro models. The company is also expected to reveal the iPadOS 16 release date. When that happens, we’ll have the full details here 9to5Mac.
