iPad upgrade: Huge changes may be coming to Apple’s tablet – Here’s what fans need to know

Apple has already issued the iPad with a number of updates this year: the Cupertino-based tech firm has released new and improved versions of the iPad mini and iPad Air.

Moreover, at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) back in June, Apple announced a new operating system for the iPad.

Aptly titled iPadOS, the new software attempts to make the tablet series better than ever with a host of new features.

iPadOS grants Apple’s tablet a refined home screen, a fresh way to multitask and new ways to use the Apple Pencil.

While this year has already been filled with iPad announcements, it seems the firm may not be stopping there.

A new report from Bloomberg has claimed the American manufacturer is hard at work on a new version of the iPad Pro and entry-level iPad that will be shown off later this year.

The outlet, citing sources familiar with the matter, said both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros are to receive an upgraded camera system and new processors.

However, it was noted the new iPad Pro variants would look similar to their predecessors.

Apple’s entry-level iPad was claimed to be set for an increase in screen size.

The successor to the device was noted to come with a 10.2-inch panel instead of a 9.7-inch display.

It was not discussed if the footprint of the tablet itself would be larger or if its bezels would be reduced to deliver the added size.

If Bloomberg’s report is accurate, it means Apple may soon cease to sell a new iPad with a 9.7-inch display.

This would mark the first time since the iPad’s debut over nine years ago such a panel size is not listed by the American tech giant.

Unfortunately, it was not detailed when Apple is likely to announce its next batch of iPads.

The Cupertino-based firm has been tipped to hold an event on September 10 that will centre around new iPhones.

It is unknown if Apple will also launch new iPads at the expected showcase.
