Apple may start taking iPad Pro, new Apple TV orders before the month’s out

It’s been just about one month now since Apple’s big launch event, bringing us not just the new iPhones, but also a new Apple TV, iPad mini, and the jumbo-sized iPad Pro. Apple told us at the time to expect the latter to go up for sale sometime this November, and earlier this week we checked in with a report that attempted to narrow down that release window even further, pointing to early-month availability. Now we’ve got one more source weighing in on things, claiming that while the tablet may not hit stores until November, online sales could get started a little early.

Reportedly, Apple could start selling both the iPad Pro and the new Apple TV through its website in the last days of October. And while you may be able to get your order in later this month, Apple isn’t expected to deviate from that earlier promise of November availability, with shipments not landing on users’ doorsteps until next month.

Between now and then, we could even see some new Apple hardware debut, with rumors suggesting that the manufacturer is planning a refresh for its desktop computer lineup (with the outside chance of new laptops), along with the introduction of some upgraded accessories. We hear that could occur as soon as next week, but so far we haven’t heard anything from Apple. That could mean that things are actually happening a little further out, or that Apple’s planning a more low-key announcement for this round of hardware.
