Apple is set to launch three new iPads this year, including an entry-level 9.7-inch iPad, 10.5-inch iPad, and upgraded 12.9-inch iPad Pro. However, according to a new report you could be waiting a bit longer than expected for the two larger sizes.

Previously it was suggested that all three would be released in the first quarter of 2017, but it’s now sounding like Apple will hold off until May or June before the 10.5- and 12.9-inch models hit shelves.

The iPad Air lineup hasn’t been updated since October 2014 but that is finally set to change on March 21st when Apple is expected to unveil a new 9.7-inch iPad that will undoubtedly be the best tablet to ever come out of Cupertino.

Crystal Baller: iPad Pro gets a stylus and other insane Apple rumors

The Rumor: Apple Watch will only get 19 hours of battery life.

The Verdict: This sounds about right to us. Some people are already complaining about Mark Gurman’s report that Apple Watch’s battery won’t last all-day. With as many features as Apple’s cramming into its first timepiece, we’re not shocked the battery is puny. Tim Cook already said you’ll have to charge it every day. It’s only a first generation device. If it lasts a full 19 hours we’ll be pleased.
