New iPad Pro will have Face ID and USB-C, report says
Apple appears to be gearing up for another event later this month, and reports suggest we'll see revamped iPad Pros come out of it. According to a 9to5Mac report, "sources familiar with the development" of the new iPad Pro models revealed that the tablets will have nearly edge-to-edge displays, no Home button, Face ID support, 4K video output via a USB-C port, and other new features.
A new report today from supply chain blog Macotakara says that the forthcoming iPad Air 4 will feature USB-C connectivity. This would mark the first time in the iPad lineup that Apple has made the switch to USB-C outside of the iPad Pro.
The report, which cites supply chain sources, says that the fourth-generation iPad Air will adopt USB-C connectivity, whereas the upcoming iPad mini refresh will stick with Lightning for another generation:
A report by Bloomberg suggests that Apple might host the iPhone 14 launch event on September 7. If this turns out to be true, Apple will have more than a month to get ready for the October event. Keep in mind that these are just speculations at this point, so we advise you to take this information with a grain of salt. In other news, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will begin iPhone 14 production in India at the same time as in China.
The report corroborates previous rumors, suggesting that the 10th-gen iPad will include a larger display, support for USB-C, and A14 Bionic chip. If we look at the renders closely, the corners are shown to be rounded. While the design is similar to the new iPad models with flat edges, the display will have corners. This will portray a less premium design for the entry-level iPad.
