Apple is rumoured to launch new iPad models later this year. According to reports, the new iPad Pro with an M2 chip will launch in October. Alongside, Apple is also said to be working on an entry-level iPad model which will launch alongside the Pro M2 later this year. The new iPad 10th-generation will get some major design tweaks. Apple has not officially confirmed any details about the leaked specs and features.
While we wait for the iPad launch date announcement, a new report claims that the entry-leave iPad is coming in September itself. This is contrary to previous reports, which suggested the launch of the budget Apple tablet in October. Let’s take a look at the iPad 10th-generation expected launch date, specifications and other details.
iPad 10th-Generation Launch Timeline
Apple is expected to host the iPhone 14 launch event in September. The company might surprise fans and also launch an iPad alongside. DigiTimes (via) claims that the budget iPad with major design changes is expected to launch next month. The report stated that the 10th-generation iPad is already in production.
The DigiTimes report does not reveal any specific details. But our readers already know about the upcoming budget iPad, courtesy of the exclusive CAD renders we revealed earlier this year.
The iPad will sport a flat frame design and come with thinner bezels around the display. The Home Button is still there on the bottom chin for Touch ID. Apple is said to launch the iPad with a 10.5-inch display. The budget iPad will continue to sport a standard 60Hz refresh rate display. It will come with a pill-shaped camera module on the back. The iPad will have a single camera sensor and an LED flash.
Rumours suggest that Apple will launch the large screen tablet with an A14 Bionic chip, which is found in the iPhone 12 series. The iPad is also likely to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack but offer a USB Type-C port instead of Lightning. More details of the budget Apple tablet should surface online soon.
