Apple is preparing to release new flagship iPad Pro tablets in 2022. The company was previously speculated to be experimenting with a glass back and wireless charging. However, according to the thematic resource 9to5Mac, the “glass” option could be canceled by Apple.
However, the company still wants to use MagSafe wireless magnetic charging in the new iPad Pro.
Sources familiar with Apple’s design plans told 9to5Mac that the company is unsure about using glass for the back of the iPad, as it’s easier to damage and will make the product more brittle. However, the presence of an aluminum back panel will make it difficult for the device to be compatible with MagSafe charging stations.
According to the source, to solve the problem, Apple developed iPad Pro prototypes with a larger logo. The bullseye is similar in size to that shown on the MacBook Pro, but is made of glass. This allows you to fully enjoy wireless charging through the glass logo.
The prototype also has stronger magnets to prevent accidents and supports charging at higher speeds than iPhone’s MagSafe.
The new iPad Pro has a larger battery, an iPhone 13-like camera module, and an entirely new SoC, possibly the same as the upcoming MacBook Air, called the Apple M2.
It is also noted that the company is experimenting with large form factors – a diagonal of more than 12.9 inches, and is also considering adding a “bangs”. However, the latter is very unlikely to be implemented in the final commercial samples of 2022.
The official debut of the new iPad Pro is expected in the first half of 2022.

Here it is, Samsung! The company may release an application to help with self-repair of smartphones and tablets
Over the past couple of years, the “right to repair” initiative has been embraced by a growing number of companies that are finally giving permission for users to repair smartphones and other devices themselves. Apple, Samsung and Google have given permission for this, and parts are officially on sale. But now Samsung has decided to make life easier for ordinary users.
According to the latest data, the company is working on a new application that will provide instructions to users who wish to make repairs themselves.
The new app will be called Self Repair Assistant, and it looks like it will provide detailed instructions on how and what to do to get the conditional S20 FE in order. The trademark application states that Self Repair Assistant is a mobile phone application software that will help with the maintenance of smart watches, tablets, mobile phones and headphones. The application will provide “consulting and information services related to self-installation and repair” of devices.
At first, the application will only contain data on a few flagship models, but in the future we can expect a wider list of solutions. There is no release date yet.
Earlier it was reported that the Galaxy S23 will have wider bezels than other models.
