NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 30: The new iPad Pro is displayed during an Apple launch event at One Hanson Place on October 30, 2018 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Apple launched a new MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and iPad Pro.
The arrival of the M2 chipset on new gadgets, like the iPad Pro refresh, is quite interesting. However, some consumers believe that this move by Apple is quite impractical.
Dylan, a popular Apple analyst, has shared his thoughts on the upcoming gadget. He posted a tweet on Sunday, January 23 to share his thoughts.
“The M2 iPad Pro is coming in the fall. I’ve only heard concerns from multiple sources regarding its wireless/MagSafe charging capabilities,” the analyst said via its official statement. Posting on Twitter.
The iPad Pro M2 is coming in the fall. I’ve only heard concerns from multiple sources regarding its wireless/MagSafe charging capabilities. All iPad Pro models will have a MiniLED display. The AirPods Pro 2 are also on track for a fall release.

However, some Twitter users in the comments section think it’s too early for Apple to integrate M2, especially with the current level of iPadOS.
Will the iPad Pro refresh have an M2 chip?
According to the latest report from Apple Insider, the giant iPhone maker might release the new refresh versions of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

But, Phone Arena reported that the estimated fall release date will still depend on Apple’s production efficiency.
Bloomberg’s Apple analyst Mark Gurman said the new iPad Pro refresh models may not launch until late spring as major changes are expected to occur.
These include M2 integration, MiniED display, as well as the glass Apple logo design. But the new Apple logo innovation might not happen anymore as there are many speculations that MagSafe wireless charging will not be included.
Apple Fan Thoughts on M2 Integration
As mentioned earlier, some Apple fans are not happy with the tech giant’s decision to bring the latest M2 to the upcoming iPad Pro refresh models.
One of the people in the comments section of Dylan’s Twitter post said that Apple would only do this because it’s one of the cheapest strategies.
He added that it would be better if the tech company modified the A15 SoC instead of increasing the production of M2. On the other hand, other Apple consumers have said that it is more convenient to integrate the M1 chipset instead of its successor.
In addition, Apple EarPods are no longer required to be sold with the iPhone 13 in France. Meanwhile, the rumored iPhone 14 Face ID under-display is now delayed. Speculations claimed that it should now be released by 2023.
