Apple credited with developing iPad Pro with wireless charging and new iPad mini

Apple is working on a new iPad Pro with wireless charging and the first iPad mini redesign in six years, in an effort to maintain momentum in a category that saw sales rise during the pandemic.

According to Bloomberg informants, the company plans to release the new iPad Pro in 2022 and the iPad mini later this year. The major design change for the iPad Pro is ditching the current aluminum back in favor of a glass back. The updated iPad mini is expected to have narrower screen bezels. We also tested the option without the Home button.

The role of tablets in Apple’s portfolio has grown significantly over the past year as people seek new ways to work, study and play at home during quarantine. IPad sales jumped 43% in the last six months of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Growth continued in the first three months of 2021, when tablets brought in $ 7.8 billion, up 79% year on year.

The glass panel will allow the iPad Pro to support wireless charging for the first time. In this regard, the designers are following the path tested on the iPhone smartphones, in which aluminum backs have already been replaced by glass ones.

Whistleblowers caveat that development is in its early stages and the company’s plans may still change before the devices are launched next year.
