15 June 2022 0

Apple's cheapest iPad is a good option for those who do not want to spend a lot or do not need that much power available through iPad Air and iPad Pro models. The newest iPad 9th Gen was announced last year and as per a new report, Apple is working on its successor that will bring a number of noticeable upgrades this year.

A new 9to5Mac report claims that the 10th Gen iPad bears the model number J272. It will come with the USB Type-C port that will complete the whole iPad lineup's transition to USB Type-C from the Lightning port. This will make the charging, data transfer, and peripheral usage a lot more convenient for the base iPad users.

The second biggest change coming to the iPad is support for 5G connectivity. It will be available on the cellular model that has offered a 4G LTE network so far. It will allow users to take advantage of faster mobile internet speeds whenever they can get access to a 5G tower. The processor will also see an upgrade in the form of the A14 Bionic chipset which debuted with the iPhone 12 series.

Apple is further said to replace the IPS LCD display on the iPad with a Retina display. The display resolution is said to remain unchanged but the size could get a bump to 10.5-inch or even 10.9-inch. The current-gen base iPad comes with a 10.2-inch IPS display. There will be no other display specs improvements on the upcoming model.

There are no words on the new iPad design and pricing details. It is unknown whether Apple will continue with what we have seen in the past or make some changes to both. But we do know that the new iPad will boot the new iPadOS 16 out of the box.
