However, according to latest rumors, the trio of new iPads for 2017 will not be announced until the second half of the year. The delay is due to poor yields from new 10nm processor technology. This means that they are likely to be announced during the same time-frame as the new iPhones. The delay is likely to push the release dates to September 2017.
