Some iPhone X technologies are likely to find their way into new iPad models this year.

We know Apple’s having a party next week . And we suspect we may see a surprise guest or two.
The company’s spring event, scheduled for March 27 , will focus on education, according to the invitation circulated to media last week. What it says: “Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students.” What’s been left unsaid: There’s a chance we may see some new products — including new iPads . (Apple did not respond to our request for a comment.)
Of course, the iPad lineup got a fairly comprehensive makeover just last year. In March 2017, Apple replaced the iPad Air 2 with today’s entry-level 9.7-inch iPad and discontinued the
Mini 2 . And in June, the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch Pros were unveiled, leaving the diminutive iPad Mini 4 , which received a minor upgrade, the sole representative of earlier generations.
Given that the current Pro models are less than a year old, it feels a bit too early for Apple to tinker with them. And yet a number of the features rumored to be coming soon, including Face ID, would fit more naturally on the pricier Pro models than the entry-level iPad or Mini. Still, if we’re going to see new iPads at this event, it’s more likely that we’ll see a refreshed version of the $329 iPad or the Mini than a new, premium “iPad Pro X.”
Of course, Apple hasn’t officially confirmed that
any iPad launch is imminent. All of this remains speculative, the rumor mill doing what it does. But read on for a rundown of what we’ve heard so far.
The current iPad lineup was last updated in June 2017.
