It is expected that the range of iPad Pro will be updated in 2020, since a large part of last year was devoted to software updates and enhance the stability of iOS. But still we know little about the new tablets Apple – unless you consider “advanced” augmented reality, which they say have long. In fairness, AR on iOS is very few people (not two persons, of course, but not millions), and most concerned about other issues: the design of the new iPad, its CPU and battery life.
In the fall of 2018 iPad Pro has been significantly redesigned and released with a new design, the display is “edge to edge” and Face ID. After this update, Apple has focused on software iPad in 2019, presenting the first ever version of iPadOS. This year experts suggest that Apple has plans to release a new generation iPad Pro.
The iPad Pro 2020
According to the leaked renderam from OnLeaks, which is known authentic images of unreleased Apple technology, the iPad Pro is unlikely to have any major changes in terms of design. The design of the iPad Pro, presented in 2018, still looks incredibly modern and stylish, especially compared to other iPad models.
According to rumors, Apple plans to transfer at least a 12.9-inch iPad Pro technology mini-LEDthat will make the device thinner and lighter. This change, however, is unlikely to appear in the next update of the iPad Pro. However, this year the iPad Pro will be one significant change: a new camera with three lenses.
Camera iPad Pro
It is expected that the biggest change in the iPad Pro 2020 will be a new camera with three lenses on the rear panel. This will improve performance, add new features augmented reality and more.
Theoretically, it is the same camera module with three lenses, which Apple uses in iPhone 11 Pro. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, however, said that the iPad Pro will also be equipped with a new 3D sensor which will provide an improved augmented reality capabilities. Sensors of this type allow you to use a wide range of new augmented reality applications as they provide a more high quality 3D shooting.

Processor the new iPad Pro
2018 iPad Pro is equipped with a processor Apple A12X Bionic. Although it is still an incredibly powerful processor, Apple probably will update the chip in the iPad Pro 2020.
It is expected that the partner of Apple — TSMC will start producing chips A14 for iPhone 12 in the second quarter, but it is unlikely that the A14 will be available for the iPad Pro. Instead, the most likely scenario is that the iPad Pro will feature a more powerful version of A13 processor, which is currently used in iPhone 11.
Although this year we can hope for a iPad Pro with support for 5G, it is much more likely that 5G will be a key feature for iPad 2021. It is expected that Apple will add the iPhone 5G at the end of this year, with modems supplied by Qualcomm. What do you think will be 5G iPad? Please share your opinion in our Telegram chat.
Smart keyboard for iPad
And last but not least, the reports in the supply chain are reporting that Apple is planning to release a new version of its Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro. Currently, Smart Keyboard Folio for the iPad Pro has a fabric design with keys with textile cover and one notable shortcoming: a lack of lighting.
Updated Smart Keyboard Folio can help to make the iPad Pro more professional, especially in the face of growing competition from other manufacturers. Could there be a new Apple Pencil along with updating the iPad Pro 2020? This, of course, possible, but rumors about it was not.
When will the new iPad
Were mixed messages about exactly when Apple plans to launch iPad Pro 2020, but recently analysts said that the emergence of new models of the iPad Pro is expected in the first half of 2020.
At the March event can be represented by 9 the iPhone and the new iPad Pro. It is also possible that Apple will hold its announcement of the iPad Pro until WWDC, where the company often announces the appearance of new “irons”. And whether the March presentationis not clear yet.
The current generation iPad Pro costs 67 108 rubles for the 11-inch model 83 380 rubles for a 12.9-inch version. It is always possible that Apple will raise prices, with the revision this year, but at the moment, details about this. In any case, if you want to buy an iPad this year, probably worth the wait. There is no reason to pay 70-90 thousand rubles for a tablet with hardware from two years ago.
