Apple reportedly working on new low-cost iPad featuring larger 10.5-inch display, USB-C, 5G, more
Apple is said to be working on a new, larger 10.5-inch low-cost iPad, with a report on Tuesday claiming the upcoming device will offer 5G support, USB-C, the A14 Bionic chip, and more.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is working on a 10th-generation iPad with the internal codename J272. The device will reportedly swap out the Lightning port in favor of USB-C, which would mean all iPads in the lineup would officially drop support for the Lightning connector, the A14 Bionic chip from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, 5G support, and a new, larger 10.5-inch display, up from 10.2-inch display on the current-generation model.
The report follows after it was claimed last week that Apple is supposedly working on a new 14-inch iPad that will launch some point in 2023.
There’s no word on design changes coming to the new low-cost iPad, suggesting the device will retain its Touch ID Home button, thick top and bottom bezels, single rear camera system and Retina display.
