Save for the iPad Pro, the rest of Apple’s iPad lineup still remains more or less the same in terms of its design, where they still feature large bezels and also a physical home button. However, according to the rumors, Apple is expected to introduce a change in design, although there is the question of when.
It turns out that it could be soon, or at least that’s what’s been suggested thanks to a tweet by DuanRui in which the alleged 2020 iPad Air was spotted in what appears to be a pamphlet. The images in the pamphlet depict an iPad that looks similar to the iPad Pro’s design, where the bezels have shrunk down considerably, and with the lack of a physical home button, we can only assume that it will rely on Face ID for authentication.
The photos also shows the back of the iPad Air where we can see a single camera setup (who really needs more than one camera on a tablet anyway?) along with the Smart Connector where users can attach accessories like the Magic Keyboard. There is no mention of display size, but last we heard, the tablet could be sporting a 10.8-inch screen.

Other features mentioned in the pamphlet include how the iPad Air will be using USB-C instead of Lightning, a feature found in the iPad Pro units as well. Take these photos with a grain of salt, but Apple is expected to announce new products in the next one to two months, so we should have more details soon.
