Apple is reportedly working on a new, larger 10.5-inch low-cost iPad, with a report on Tuesday claiming the next device will offer 5G support, USB-C, the A14 Bionic chip, and more.
According 9to5Mac, Apple is working on a 10th generation iPad with the internal codename J272. The device would replace the Lightning port with USB-C, which would mean that all iPads in the lineup would officially drop support for the Lightning connector, the A14 Bionic chip from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, the 5G support and a new larger 10.5-inch screen, up from 10.2-inch on the current-gen model.
The report follows after it was claimed last week that Apple is supposedly working on a new 14-inch iPad that will launch sometime in 2023.
There’s no word on design changes coming to the new low-cost iPad, suggesting the device will retain its Touch ID Home button, thick top and bottom bezels, camera system unique rear and its Retina screen.
