The most common requests were for a larger screen, more GPIO pins, and an on-board Real-Time Clock (RTC). With Inkplate 10, we're delivering all three, plus a USB Type-C port! Read the full update.

COVID-19 Delays

Supply chains have gone through major disruption and are still recovering. Country restrictions, such as those placed on our company in Croatia, are limiting our capabilities. Even shipping companies have greatly increased their delivery times. Nothing is as it used to be, and we are doing our best to deliver Inkplate 6 to you on time. Unfortunately, given the situation, we are guessing that you were all waiting for an update like this. And sure enough, we are now estimating that we will ship the first batch of Inkplates on May 20th, and complete shipping to all backers by July 2nd. Read the full update.
