The iPad Pro has been one of the most hyped and highly anticipated Apple products to ever go official. It was introduced last month after years of leaks and rumors, but as painful as this may be for prospective customers and fans of the slate, the iPad Pro is still nowhere to be found.
During the September presentation Apple revealed that the iPad Pro will hit the shelves sometime in November, but other than this rather vague timeframe the company wasn’t able to reveal much about the tablet’s market debut. Early rumors hinted at a late-November release, while other, more recent ones suggested that the iPad Pro could become available in the first week of November.
Whatever the case may be, the iPad Pro is now undeniably one step closer to its market release, as it has just been spotted in the FCC database strolling for an approval.
Join us below for details.
iPad Pro Gets Approved by the FCC
According to the FCC database, the iPad Pro received its approval from the telecommunication agency on the 15th of October. It was registered as model number “A1652”, and both the Wi-Fi and LTE models seem to have been approved.
The tablet supports Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi standards: 801.11 a/b/g/n/ac. It also seems to support LTE Cat.4 connectivity which should allow for maximum download speeds of up to 150Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 50Mbps.
As usual, the FCC documents don’t reveal much about the tablet’s overall specifications, but their existence alone brings the iPad Pro closer to the finish line. How close, we don’t know, but so far an early-November launch seems like a pretty good bet.
Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated as more details emerge.
