Apple released the 9th Gen iPad last year in September. Now, the company is working on the next-gen iPad line up and the upcoming iPad may launch as iPad 2022 or 10th gen iPad/iPad 10th Gen. Now, ahead of the expected launch, which is likely to happen in the coming months, MySmartPrice has received exclusive CAD renders of the next-gen Apple iPad from a case maker.
These RAW CAD renders give us an idea about the tablet’s design and some other key features. Previous reports suggest that the upcoming iPad might switch to USB Type-C for charging and data transfer. Let’s take a look at the upcoming iPad’s CAD renders and other details.

iPad 2022 CAD Render Reveals Design
From the below-shown CAD renders, we can see that the 10th gen iPad will look similar to the 9th Gen from the front with the camera on the top and Touch ID on the bottom of the screen. We can also see the sizeable bezels on all four sides. To the back, it looks like the next-gen iPad will come with a single camera, just like the last-gen device. But, based on these images, it looks like the 10th Gen will get an LED flash and a camera island, unlike the 9th Gen. The back also comes with the Apple logo.
Further, to the bottom and the top of the device, we can see the speaker out, which we assume the iPad will feature a quad-speaker setup. To the top, we can also see the power button. To the side, we see the volume rockers. The device’s charging port is still a mystery as the CAD renders have a red mark on them. So, we are still not sure if Apple will jump to Type-C or stick to the lighting port. A report from a couple of months back suggests Apple might bring the USB Type-C port for the new iPad.
The next-gen iPad is also expected to feature a larger display than the predecessor and measure 248.62 x 179.50 x 6.98mm, which is wider, but slimmer than the 9th gen iPad.
Now that you have seen the CAD renders, here is what’s expected from the 10th gen iPad.
10th Gen Apple iPad: Expected Specifications
The new Apple iPad is tipped to be powered by the Apple A14 chip under the hood, which is the same chip as seen on the iPad Air 4th-generation and the iPhone 12 series. The SoC also supports 5G network. Apple could have a larger 10.5-inch or 10.9-inch Retina display and lastly, the iPad is also expected to feature USB Type-C port and run on the latest iPad OS out of the box.
