The iPad is coming to China, and that means you’ll have to be patient while it arrives.
The company has revealed that the device is currently in development in its “core engineering labs,” and the company will begin shipping the device to customers sometime in December.
But it isn’t saying when it will arrive in China.
The only information we have right now is that it will ship “in early to mid-2017.”
“The iPad is not yet available in mainland China.
China has been a significant market for Apple for several years, and we are excited to share the iPad’s arrival in the country with our loyal customers,” Apple said in a statement.
The iPad, as you probably know, is a premium, low-cost tablet that is available only in China and South Korea.
It is also compatible with Apple Pay, a new form of payment that’s available in the U.S. but not in many countries.
It has a 10-inch display, which Apple says is wider than the standard iPad’s 9.7-inch screen, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The iPad isn’t Apple’s only high-end tablet.
It also has a 12.9-inch iPad Pro that’s compatible with iPhones, iPads, and other high-resolution devices.
While it won’t be available at home until sometime in the fall, Apple said that the iPad Pro will be a “significant revenue generator for Apple.”
