we take stock of the rumors

The iPad is gaining in popularity day by day, and Apple intends to take advantage of this to offer new models in 2022.

If there is a product whose specialists scrutinize the latest advances and rumors, it is the iPhone. But within the range of the Apple brand, it is not only smartphones that bring their share of innovations and rumors. The tablets of the Cupertino company, known to the general public as the iPad are also first choice products, experiencing a resurgence of interest since the start of the epidemic and the large-scale implementation of teleworking .

After having thus achieved a historic year 2020 as regards its tablets, Apple attacked 2021 with even greater ambitions and the Californian tech giant seems to have succeeded. With the launch of an iPad M1, the firm has once again refined the border between iPad and Macbook.

iPad Pro 2022: the MagSafe will be there?

These new products seem to have been very popular with the public, and, as reported by Mark Gurman, journalist for Bloomberg, 2022 should be at least as busy for Apple.

Indeed, according to its information, the Apple brand would have plans to market a new version of its iPad Pro using a brand new design but also a wireless charging system, surely inspired by MagSafe which occupies the back of Apple’s phones. from iPhone 12.

If the entry-level iPad was entitled to a ninth version this fall, some rumors believe that Apple could wait only a few months before the release of a tenth generation. Gurman is not the biggest defender of these theories, who believe that the 9th generation iPad should last several years before being replaced.

iPad Air: the big news?

Finally, and this is perhaps the most important here, Apple is about to change its range of iPad Air. The finest tablets of the brand would indeed be entitled to a fifth generation model this year. If rumors have long speculated on the arrival of an OLED screen on the latter, Gurman believes that the project was finally abandoned internally and that Apple is only working on an iPad with an LCD screen.

According to the latest rumors about it, the Californian tablet should be entitled to the same technical characteristics as the very recent iPad Mini. She would thus be entitled to an A15 chip but also a 5G modem or the Center Stage functionality for video calls.

For the moment Gurman has given no release date for these tablets and an arrival in spring 2022, during the brand’s first conference of the year is possible, although information is still sorely lacking on this subject.
