Apple refreshed its iPad lineup back in September with a modern-looking iPad Air and an entry-level A12 powered 10.2-inch iPad. Now according to a new report, Apple is planning to refresh its iPad with a newer chipset and a little bigger display.
CnBeta’s report suggests that Apple will be launching a new iPad in spring next year which will be a successor to the 2020’s iPad 8. The iPad 9 will be reportedly coming with a slightly bigger 10.5-inch LED display, and will be powered by A13 Bionic SoC. The Chinese publication further reports that the next-generation iPad will be slimmer and lighter than the current generation iPad 8 while retaining the traditional iPad design, which indicates that thick bezels and touchID are here to stay, and probably the lightning connector isn’t going anywhere for now.
Faster And Cheaper iPad
The report further claims that the base variant of the iPad 9th generation will be having 64GB of internal storage and will be sold at a reduced price of $299 as compared to this year’s iPad 8th generation which is being priced at $329 for the 32GB internal storage variant.
The report seems to be a little dubious since Apple has just refreshed its entry-level iPad a few months ago and it seems highly unlikely of the Cupertino giant to kill its product within such a less timespan.
