Apple’s iPad Pro 2022 is expected to receive a slew of significant upgrades, including a new chip, improved cameras, and possibly wireless charging, according to Bloomberg journalist and Appel tipster Mark Gurman.
Gurman claims that the new iPad Pros will be powered by the Apple M2 chip, like the recently revealed MacBook Air 2022 and MacBook Pro 2022. Since the iPad Pro 2021 models use the original Apple M1 chip, you could probably have predicted this one yourself. iPadOS apps don’t necessitate the power of a MacBook Pro 2021’s upcoming M1 Pro or M1 Max chip, but it would be great if they did.
Gurman has previously claimed that the iPad Pro 2022 will include wireless charging. This is a unique tablet feature that has never been seen before on an iPad. Apple’s inclusion of MagSafe charging, as it has on the iPhone 13, makes perfect sense. It’s possible that Apple will release new wireless charging accessories for the iPad Pro that take advantage of the larger size. Apple gadgets like iPhones and AirPods will soon be capable of wirelessly recharging from the bigger iPad battery.
As a final note, Gurman suggests to keep an eye out for updates to the iPad Pro’s camera system, which has been rumoured to have an iPhone 13-style camera module in the past. There is already a LiDAR sensor on the existing iPad Pro that can be used for AR apps and camera effects, as well as a 12MP primary and ultrawide camera. A bigger primary camera with a wider aperture, as well as Cinematic mode, might be included to the iPhone 13 module. That might also mean that the iPad Pro 2021 will have a new diagonal camera module design like the iPhone 13 has, rather than the vertically stacked camera array that the iPad Pro 2021 now has.
According to some speculations, the iPad Pro will be little different from current versions. However, there may be a new 14-inch model that might change things up at the most costly end of Apple’s tablet offerings.
