Washington US January 16, ANI American tech giant Apple has never been particularly chatty when it comes to future plans and RnD. Most analysts believe that updated vanilla iPad and iPad Air, as well as new Pro models, can be expected in 2022.
Since Apple introduced its MagSafe wireless charging tech for the iPhone, the question of wireless charging has been a topic of discussion. According to GSM Arena, Apple is already experimenting with a 2022 iPad Pro prototype with MagSafe on board, according to the latest chatter from industry insiders.
Sources claim that the company was hesitant about swapping the iPad's traditional metal back for a glass one in order to allow wireless charging.
The proposed solution is a large glass Apple logo, similar to that on the latest MacBook models. The prototype is said to have beefier magnets to prevent accidental detachment.
People wonder whether Apple is planning or if it's possible to attach accessories like keyboards and stand to the iPad in a seamless and clean way.
It would be interesting to see for keyboards, since some users have complained about excessive battery drain from an attached Magic Keyboard. Perhaps newer models will be designed to charge the tablet in some way rather than as a dock of sorts, rather than leech off its battery.
Most sources agree that the next iPad Pro will likely have a larger battery on board. A camera module similar to that on the iPhone 13 is a possibility of new and brighter double-stacked OLED panels, which could be added to the potential list of new additions. Maybe even ones with a notch to make the aesthetics more unified with the MacBook line.
That last one hasn't popped up nearly as often in the rumor mill. There may be the debut of an Apple M 2 chip. After all, Apple had a nice uptick in iPad sales in Q 4 so it might make sense to refine them even more aggressively.
