A new report expects few changes in the new model
Apple isn’t likely to change up its next iPad too much, according to a new report from Macotakara.
The report says it is likely to keep the same enclosure and will retain Touch ID and a headphone jack.
The report comes from a supplier, which says that the screen size hasn’t been determined, but that it could be bumped up to a 10-inch size. The supplier also notes that this year’s model could be announced alongside an update to the iPad Mini, which has also been rumored to look pretty much like the prior version.
When it was released last year, the basic iPad wasn’t a radical change from its predecessor — it featured a 9.7 inch screen size, had Touch ID, cameras, an updated processor and added support for the Apple Pencil.
The new report suggests that Apple is happy with its base model and isn’t going to change things up drastically, unlike the iPad Pro line, which now features more top-of-the-line features like Face ID.
