It was previously reported that the upgraded Apple iPads with the new A10X processor will be arriving around MArch next year but new reports suggest that some issues with the production of the 10nm processor might cause the Apple iPad to arrive later than expected.
According to DigiTimes, the Apple iPad might miss the March launch window as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company or TSMC for short is struggling to build so many chips at once. They added that the company have already started building the chip but “unsatisfactory yields could lead to them delaying the arrival of the tablet. Some believe that the arrival will now be 2months later than expected.
To be fair, Apple never did say that they were going to release the tablet in March. The March window was also part of a rumor so we can’t blame Apple for giving us a false hope.
