During its September presentation, Apple will introduce the new iPhone 14 series and Apple Watch Series 8. In addition to that, the company is expected to introduce the new entry-level 10th generation iPad later this year. The next iPad was previously expected to debut alongside the iPhone 14 series. On the other hand, Mark Gurman predicted that the updated 10th generation iPad will debut alongside the upgraded Macs in October.
It’s been tenuously rumored that the next 10th generation iPad will come with Touch ID built into the power button and a FaceTime camera mounted in landscape mode. Recent leaks online of CAD renders of the 10th generation iPad would indicate a drastic redesign of the model. The designs were shown in renders as having flat sides, USB-C, and narrower bezels. Fair enough, the exterior of the device resembles the iPad Pro, iPad Air 5 and the latest iPad Mini 6. The inclusion of Touch ID in the Home button of the iPad 10 has also been made public . Now, a dubious report from Macotakara claims that Touch ID will be integrated into the Home button of the iPad 10.
Apple’s 10th generation iPad could have an all-screen design like the iPad Mini 6.
The chassis size is identical to the leaked CAD data, according to Makotakara, who also cites the supply chain source, but the front screen size and Touch ID button location “do not appear to be included in the CAD data”. The source also said that the upcoming iPad 10 will resemble the iPad mini 6 in terms of looks.
The 10th generation iPad may look like the iPad Air, but with several key differences. For starters, Apple’s A14 Bionic technology is expected to be present in the iPad 10. The research also highlights the FaceTime HD camera move as a significant tweak. According to a source, the FaceTime HD camera could be on the right side. There are other claims that the FaceTime HD camera may be drastically different.
Compared to the iPad 9, Apple is unlikely to move the FaceTime camera to the side. It will now be interesting to see if the report has any merit. According to a previous story, Apple will introduce the new iPad in September.
