The rumor: Apple is planning one more iteration of their most affordable iPad before redesigning the product in 2023, according to dylandkt (77.5% accurate).
Here are the leaked specs…
- Same 10.2-inch design as current 9th-generation model
- A14 processor
- Bluetooth 5.0 & Wi-Fi 6
- 5G connectivity
- Lightning port
Our take: Pretty cool that Apple updates its most popular iPad every year. I’d love to see the same yearly updates, even if it’s just a new processor, for other Apple products, too (ex. Mac Pro, HomePod mini, iPad Air). We’ve actually heard about this lower-end iPad redesign before, but it looks like the new timeline is a revamp sometime next year.
