Apple is set to release a new iPad in 2022. This iPad will have a number of new features, including a retina display, an A14 processor, and support for the Apple Pencil. The new iPad will also be thinner and lighter than the previous model.
What to Expect from the New Apple iPad
Apple is expected to unveil a new iPad at its “Spring Loaded” event on April 20. The device is rumored to feature a redesigned iPad Pro-like chassis, smaller bezels, an A14X processor, and more. Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming tablet.
The new iPad has a unibody design that’s made from a single piece of aluminum. The iPad is available in blue, pink, yellow, and silver. The new iPad is 6.1mm thin and weighs 1.03 pounds.
Expected Changes in the Design
Apple is expected to make some changes in the design of the iPad in 2022. The company is also said to be working on a new iPad Pro with a mini-LED display.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is working on an updated design for the iPad that will include thinner bezels and a portless design. The report also indicates that the company is working on a new iPad Pro with a mini-LED display.
Mini-LED displays are said to offer better contrast and color accuracy than traditional LED displays. The technology is also said to be more power efficient.
The report also mentions that Apple is working on a new version of the Apple Pencil. It is unclear if this version will be compatible with the current generation of iPads or if it will be exclusive to the new mini-LED iPad Pro.
Apple is also said to be working on an updated version of its AirPods earbuds. The report says that the new AirPods will feature a redesigned charging case that can wirelessly charge the earbuds.
Lastly, Bloomberg’s sources say that Apple is working on an update to the MacBook Pro laptop. The update is said to include a new design with thinner bezels and improved cooling.
What We Want to See in the Design
While there have been some rumors that Apple is working on a new iPad design with a mini-LED display and thinner bezels, we don’t expect to see that until at least 2023. So for the next iPad, we’re expecting Apple to stick with the tried-and-true design it’s been using for the past several years.
That doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to in terms of the design, though. Here are a few things we hope to see in the next iPad:
-Thinner bezels: The iPad has had relatively thick bezels since it was first introduced in 2010. In recent years, though, Apple has slowly but surely been shrinking them down, and we hope to see that trend continue with the next iPad.
-A smaller notch: The iPhone X was the first Apple device to feature a notch at the top of the screen, and it was quickly followed by the iPad Pro. Since then, though, Android phones have adopted notches of their own and they’ve gotten smaller and smaller. We’d like to see Apple shrink down the size of the notch on the next iPad so it’s not quite so intrusive.
-Wireless charging: The iPhone has supported wireless charging for several years now, but the iPad has yet to get on board. We’d love to see wireless charging become available on the next iPad so we can ditch the Lightning cable when it’s time to juice up.
The new iPad comes with a powerful A14 Bionic chip that gives you the power to do more than ever before. With the Neural Engine, you can experience augmented reality and create stunning photos and videos. The Retina display is also brighter and more vibrant than ever, and the bezels are 50% smaller.
Expected Changes in the Hardware
The new iPad is expected to feature a redesigned chassis with smaller bezels, a flat edged design, and a slightly larger display. The display size is expected to be between 10 and 12 inches, with the latter being more likely. The resolution is rumored to be 2732×2048, which is the same as the current iPad Pro models. The processor is rumored to be Apple’s A14X chip, which is an upgrade from the A12Z used in the current iPad Pro models.
The A14X is also expected to power the upcoming iPhone 12 models. Rumors also suggest that Apple will include up to 1TB of storage and up to 16GB of RAM in the new iPad. There have also been rumors that the new iPad will feature a USB-C port instead of Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector. However, this rumor has not been as strong as the others.
What We Want to See in the Hardware
The iPad Pro is currently one of the most powerful tablets on the market, and while it’s not quite a laptop replacement for everyone, it definitely has the power to do so for many people. With that said, there are always room for improvements, both in terms of hardware and software. Here are some of the things we would like to see Apple do with the next generation iPad Pro.
-Faster processor: The A12X Bionic is already a very fast processor, but Apple could always make it faster.
–More storage: The current top storage option for the iPad Pro is 1TB, but we would like to see Apple offer 2TB or even 4TB options for power users who need that much storage.
-Better cameras: The cameras on the iPad Pro are already great, but they could be even better. We would love to see an upgrade to the rear camera sensor (perhaps a 12MP sensor?) and improved lenses all around.
-A better display: The current iPad Pro display is already great, but it could be even better. We would love to see an OLED display with an improved resolution and/or higher refresh rate.
Regarding software, the new iPad will apparently run iPadOS 15, which will likely be released around the same time as the new iPad. iPadOS 15 will bring a number of new features and improvements to the iPad, including a redesigned home screen, new multitasking features, improvements to Apple Pencil, and more.
Expected Changes in the Software
Apple is expected to announce a new iPad in 2022 with a completely redesigned user interface, aimed at making the tablet more productivity-focused. The new software will include support for multiple windows within apps, revamped versions of Apple’s existing apps, and improved integration with the company’s other products.
What We Want to See in the Software
-A return to the home screen redesign that was first introduced in iOS 11. We liked the way that each app had its own icon and we think it makes for a cleaner interface overall.
-More support for alternative appstores like Amazon Appstore and GetJar. Right now, there are only a handful of apps available outside of the App Store and we would like to see that change.
-Better integration with cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive. Currently, there are very few apps that take advantage of these services and we would love to see that change.
- improvements to the built-in apps like Mail and Calendar. These are two of the most important apps on any tablet and they could definitely use some improvements.
The iPad 2022 is a great upgrade from the iPad 2020. It has a better processor, more storage, and a better camera. The only downside is the price; it’s quite expensive.
