Apple is Exploring New iPad Designs With Bigger Displays
With every upgrade, Apple tends to make some changes with the design, be it big or small. Sometimes, the upgrade takes the form of better internals or the introduction of new technology. However, a complete design overhaul of a certain product does not happen all of a sudden. Apple has to make sure that users are done buying the current model until it releases a new one. It is now being stated that Apple is exploring the idea of a new design for the iPad with bigger displays.
Apple is Looking Into New iPad Designs With Even Bigger Displays Than the Current 12.9-Inch Models
In the first part of Bloomberg's Power On newsletter, Mark Gurman coins that Apple is working on exploring a new design for the iPad with bigger displays (via 9to5Mac). At this point in time, the biggest display on the iPad reaches 12.9-inches. While the new iPad design with bigger displays is 'couple of years down the road', the models currently rest in the exploratory phase. What this means is that the company could potentially scrap the plans altogether or give it a different perspective.
We previously heard that Apple is developing new iPad models with a redesigned chassis. The new iPad design will incorporate a glass back for wireless charging and could be released next year. The iPad Pro model with a glass back is expected to come in both 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes. However, we do not have any concrete details on what else will Apple use the glass back for other than wireless charging.
Mark Gurman anticipates that the iPad with a bigger display would further bridge the gap between an iPad and a MacBook. To bolster the notion, Apple is enhancing iPadOS with a plethora of new productivity features that would take better advantage of more screen real estate. The 2022 iPad Pro models with a glass back might also come with reverse wireless charging technology. This will allow you to charge your iPhone and AirPods on the go.
Apple's rumored iPad models with bigger displays are not expected to arrive anytime soon, so be sure to take the word with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, there will be several details pertaining to the iPad models in the future, so be sure to stick around.
