Apple iPad 10th-Generation Specifications Tipped

Apple is said to be working on the iPad 10th-generation launch. The budget iPad is expected to launch in the coming months. Ahead of the official launch confirmation, a new report has revealed that the iPad 10th-generation model will launch with a USB Type-C port. 

Apple’s Air, Mini and Pro lineup already come with a USB Type-C port. The entry-level iPad was the only model to feature the company’s proprietary port. Switching to USB Type-C would mean that the iPad will support faster transfer speeds and a wider variety of peripherals.

The upcoming iPad model will also feature an A14 chip under the hood. The same chip was available in the iPad Air 4th-generation and the iPhone 12 series. The choice of chip will allow Apple to offer 5G support on the base iPad.

The display size is also said to increase slightly. Apple could launch the iPad 10th-generation with a larger 10.5-inch Retina display or even a 10.9-inch screen. In comparison, the current model has a 10.2-inch display.

Other details of the entry-level iPad are unknown. We will share more details once available. What do you think about the budget iPad? Let us know in the comments below.
