If we are to believe the rumors, Apple will present a new version of the entry-level iPad later this year. What exactly the device has in store for us is currently guesswork. But recently leaked schematics may already provide some of that answer, before Apple does later this year.
The online publication MySmartPrice shares the schematics, also known as CAD renders, with the rest of the world. If the renders are correct, we now take a first look at the new design of the iPad. It looks like the company is giving the tenth iteration a flat design and thus saying goodbye to the classic design.
Will this be the new iPad?
We also encounter this new, flat design on the iPad Pro, Air and mini. The renders also show that the entry-level model will soon have thick edges and even a Touch ID button. On the back we find a new design for the camera system: the module protrudes this time and resembles the system of the iPhone X from 2017.
Despite the fact that we encounter two openings, this model does not suddenly get two cameras. The second opening is for the LED flash. Furthermore, the source of the rumor claims that Apple intends to improve the quality of the camera sensor. There is reportedly a new sensor in it.
Still thinner edges?
It is expected that the entry-level iPad will have the following dimensions: 248.62 mm (height) by 179.50 mm (width) by 6.98 mm (depth). If the dimensions are correct, we can conclude two things from that. This new model may be slightly thinner and wider than its predecessor.
iPad (2021) Review: very very easy, but still very good
We still know very little about the new iPad. The device may get a slightly larger screen, so that the edges can be a bit narrower. The tablet may also receive an A14 Bionic chipset, as well as support for 5G.
