According to the latest reports, Apple is gearing up to update three of its iPads in 2022, including the entry-level iPad, iPad Air and iPad Pro. The new iPad Pro will receive a new design and wireless charging. This is all that is known about him so far.
The entry-level iPad has received several valuable upgrades this year, including the Apple A13 SoC and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle front camera with Center Stage for video calling. Since 2017, Apple has been releasing a new entry-level iPad every year, usually with minor improvements to keep the device’s price low, so the iPad 10 may continue to follow that pattern. There are no major improvements to be expected, although rumor has it that it will get a thinner body and a larger display.
As for the fifth-generation iPad Air, it should at least match the specifications of the new iPad mini, which uses Apple’s A15 SoC, 5G connectivity, and Center Stage.
