Could an updated iPad Pro become available as early as next month? There's a lot of uncertainty among analysts at the moment as it's anyone's guess as to when Apple will release the updated 10.5-inch tablet.
Isaac Brown,

Consumers haven’t gotten an updated iPad Pro for some time, but sources say the wait is over. Maybe. The rumored 10.5-inch devices are entering limited production next month, according to IHS analyst Rhoda Alexander in a recent conversation with Forbes.

This is the latest in a series of conflicting rumors regarding the release date of the new iPad Pro, with some saying that it would arrive in the spring, at WWDC 2017 this summer, or at a date closer to the holiday season. There was even a rumor that the new iPad Pro was supposed to be unveiled in March, but instead, Apple announced several other products instead like its more affordable 9.7-inch iPad and the 128GB iPhone SE.

Most sources say the release is right around the corner. DigiTimes says the iPad Pro announcement will coincide with the opening of Apple’s new Apple Park campus which opens next month, and a source in Apple’s supply chain told MacRumors that we should expect this iPad “sometime in the spring… maybe as soon as April.”

At the very least, there seems to be a general consensus that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is coming in 2017, so that’s a good sign that consumers won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on this device.
