For a few months now, rumors have been swirling about the fact that Apple is developing a new generation of moderately priced iPads. According 9to5Mac, this is in the process of being confirmed. Our colleagues indeed claim that the Cupertino company is working on an entry-level device which would be equipped with an A14 Bionic chip, and 5G.
In detail, the apple brand would therefore refine this model which is currently called “J272”. The latter is equipped with a USB-C port instead of the traditional Lightning port. This means that the entire range of its tablets will have made the transition.
Performance improved by 30% compared to the current model?
Apart from the fact that it will soon be mandatory on all devices in Europe, the USB-C port could also ensure faster transfer speed charges. The use of external screens such as the Studio Display should also be simplified.
For the rest, this new device would carry a Retina screen from 10.5 to 10.9 inches. The A14 Bionic chip would also be present as on the fourth generation iPad Air. The performance gains compared to the A13 Bionic currently present on entry-level iPads are around 30%.
No doubt 5G support will also be appreciated. This new generation of mobile network is increasingly offered by operators and users are gradually making the transition.
It is not known when this new tablet will be presented. According to our colleagues, this will be done well this year and they recall that the last launch of an entry-level iPad was operated at the same time as new iPhones. Earlier this year, Apple already introduced its new iPad Air 5, details of which can be found here.
