Apple’s entry-level iPad could get a much-needed technology upgrade. Apple’s next basic tablet, according to 9to5Mac sources, will move from a Lightning connector to USB-C when it launches in the fall. You could hook directly into displays and other peripherals, just like most modern iPads, to improve the speed of wired data transfers. There are also indicators of a more comprehensive performance boost.
According to reports, the new entry-level iPad will have a bigger screen with the same resolution as the iPad Air. You wouldn’t have the same visual quality as the Air, but you wouldn’t have to make do with a much smaller display to save money.
According to the sources, Apple will also include the A14 Bionic chip from the fourth-generation Air in the iPad, as well as 5G capabilities for cellular models. There’s no word on whether Apple will update the iPad’s design, which may include support for the Magic Keyboard or the second-generation Pencil. However, it wouldn’t be shocking if the slate was redesigned. The iPad’s base model is the last to use Lightning, a home button, and other features that have been around for a decade or more. If the story is true, the new version will bring the Air into the modern era while still offering customers a cause to pay a premium for it.
Apple’s long-awaited (and arguably hesitant) switch to USB-C is going well. The first USB-C iPhone has already been teased in reports. The iPad, on the other hand, has already received a lot of USB-C love. Apple now wishes to complete the collection. According to a fresh source, the base iPad is finally converting to USB-C.
The impending 10th-generation iPad will convert from Lightning to USB-C this fall, according to 9to5Mac. The change will take a long time, especially because the other models in the family already have it. The new iPad will have the same Retina display as the present iPad Air, in addition to the new standard. It will also have a Bionic A14 processor and 5G connectivity.
Though most Apple fans are waiting for the company’s next iPhone, a basic iPad with USB-C is a welcome indication for those hoping for a comprehensive USB-C ecosystem.
The European Union is currently putting a lot of pressure on Apple over the same issue. In a few years, every tech company selling gadgets in the region will be required to use USB-C. As the switch’s deadline approaches, the corporation is gradually opening up to the notion of a USB-C-only ecosystem.
