Today Apple announced new iPad Pros, a new (non-Pro) iPad, and a new Apple TV 4K. However, there were several items that the tech giant didn’t announce, particularly in regards to the iPad Pro.

For example, it anticipated that Apple’s high-end tablet would have a glass back instead of an aluminum one to allow wireless charging and MagSafe for the first time on an iPad. This didn’t happen.

There were also rumors that the new iPad Pros would offer reverse wireless charging for charging devices such as iPhones and AirPod Pros. This, too, didn’t happen. Nor did a “Touch ID under display” feature, a display notch, and new colors. There are no significant design changes to the revamped tablets. The dimensions and weight are pretty much the same as before. What’s more, rumors of a bigger battery and OLED displays also failed to materialize. 

As for those hoping for new colors, Apple continues to make its non-Pro products available only in space grey or silver. Perhaps some of these new features will arrive in 2023 iPads.

And here are some other tidbits regarding today’s iPad Pro, iPad, and Apple TV 4K announcements:

° The Apple TV HD is no longer on sale at Apple’s online store.

° The new Siri Remote packs a USB-C, not Lightning, connector.

° The new (non-Pro) iPad has Apple Pencil support — but only for the first generation Pencil, not the second.

° The cellular models of the new iPad Pros no longer include GSM/EDGE support.

° The new iPad Pro and iPad models introduced today include a woven one-meter USB-C charging cable in the box for the first time.
