The next-generation iPad Air is right around the corner, according to a leak coming out of Asia. The upcoming tablet will allegedly get a better front-facing camera with support for Center Stage. And a general specs boost.
On the inside, the iPad Air 5 supposed to have much in common with the iPad mini 6.
Apple reportedly wants to add MagSafe wireless charging to the new iPad Pro, and it’s reportedly going to make a surprising design tweak to make it happen: increasing the size of the Apple logo on the back of the tablet.
The same unconfirmed report says the 2022 will have an improved camera, larger battery and a processor upgrade.
The difference between the current 10.9-inch iPad Air and the 11-inch iPad Pro is relatively slim. And now it seems more of the features of the Pro tablet are moving to the Air. Apple is reportedly going to build on the powerful 2020 model with an iPad Air 5 that offers a dual-lens camera and optional 5G. Plus, the tablet is getting a processor upgrade.
These changes would make it a stronger mid-range tablet in Apple’s product lineup.
The iPad mini 6 screen will increase to 8.3 inches, according to a report from a display industry expert. This is just the latest leak to indicate that Apple is about to dramatically improve the design of its smallest tablet.
A larger screen should make the computer easier and more fun to use. Especially as the whole device will reportedly stay about the same size.
The 2021 iPad mini will be Apple’s next tablet with a mini-LED display, according to information leaking from a component supplier. This type of screen looks better than the standard LCD used in many current iPads.
But an display industry expert claims there’s no truth to this report.
Even so, Apple allegedly won’t reserved the display tech for tablet much longer. mini-LED displays will also supposedly be used in upcoming MacBook Pro models.
The much-anticipated iPad mini 6 will boast the Apple A15 processor, according to an unconfirmed report. That should bring a significant performance increase. And the tablet will allegedly have a USB-C port and a Smart Connector.
Someday, Apple could make tablets as large as the biggest MacBooks. The company is reportedly investigating making super size iPad models with displays larger than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, according to a reliable source for insider info.
