After already mentioning the case of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, @dylandkt returned to the charge on Twitter with information regarding the next basic iPad. According to him, the device could thus arrive at the end of the year, which could coincide with the usual keynote organized by Apple in the fall. On this date, four versions of the iPhone 14 also seem to be planned.
On the technical characteristics side, the iPad 10 would be compatible with the network 5G. Remember, however, that to be entitled to cellular data, the manufacturer charges the product more than in its version with Wi-Fi only.
The iPad 10th Generation is coming out towards the end of this year with 5G, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, A14 processor, 10.2 inch display, and the lighting connector. This will be the last model before a redesign is to take place in 2023.

Still the same screen?
According to the source, the tablet would continue to offer a display with a diagonal of 10.2 inches, i.e. no difference compared to the iPad 9 which arrived in 2021. This therefore suggests that the borders will not be reduced unlike the iPad mini, the iPad Air and the iPad Pro. But this improvement would not be thrown into oblivion, since Apple would indeed think about it but for 2023.
Dylan also adds that the tenth generation iPad would be entitled to Bluetooth 5.0, low energy consumption, where the current edition is satisfied with Bluetooth 4.2. Moreover, the port Lightning would be kept: no USB-C connection for charging, therefore.
Finally, it is a A14 processor who would be in charge. It is already found in the fourth generation iPad Air still available in stores at the moment, but the latter could also be renewed and no later than in the spring.
