Apple’s iPads have long supported cellular connectivity, and with the new iPhone 12 series supporting 5G, we suppose it shouldn’t really come as a surprise to learn that Apple could be looking to introduce mmWave 5G to its higher-end iPad Pros starting in 2021, or at least that’s the word according to DigiTimes.
With Apple’s iPhones pretty much switching over to OLED displays, many have wondered when the iPad series will make that transition. It’s not entirely impossible, but the larger screens would represent technical challenges, not to mention it might also see an increase in costs, but if you love the idea of an OLED iPad, you’re in luck.
Apple has stopped including the charger with the new iPhone. Instead, the company recommends that if users want to take advantage of fast charging and to allow MagSafe to charge at its max speed, they’ll need to pony up an extra $20 for the 20W USB-C charger on top of everything else.
The last time Apple refreshed its iPad Pro was earlier this year where they introduced a LiDAR scanner to the tablet which eventually made its way to this year’s iPhone 12s. This means that the next refresh will most likely take place in early 2021, and it seems that one of the upgrades we can expect comes in the form of a mini LED display.
It might be easy to think of the Apple Pencil as a mere stylus, but it is more than that. It features support for things like pressure sensitivity, palm rejection, and also low latency to give off the feeling like you’re drawing with a real pen/pencil. However, it seems that future versions of the Apple Pencil could actually come with a stylus.
According to a report from last week, it was suggested that Apple is ramping up on the number of suppliers for mini LED display panels. We have been hearing rumors that Apple could be switching to the technology, and now a report from DigiTimes claims that come 2021, the first mini LED product we can expect from Apple would be a 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
Thanks to Apple’s iPad Pros now offering support for trackpad, we’re starting to see companies such as Logitech launch keyboard accessories for the iPad Pros with trackpads built into them. The resulting design is a tablet that kind of looks like a laptop, but in case you didn’t fancy the design, you’re in luck.
One of the new accessories that Apple launched with their iPad Pro is the Magic Keyboard accessory. This basically introduces a more proper keyboard with more sturdy switches compared to the Smart Keyboard accessory. The only downside is that it is actually rather pricey as far as accessories are concerned.
Earlier this year, it was rumored that Apple could be working on launching an iPad Pro with a mini LED display, but it was later suggested that Apple’s plans to introduce mini LED products had been delayed to 2021. Now it seems that the latter rumors are being corroborated in a new report.
There’s really nothing not to like about the Apple Pencil. Ok, maybe it is kind of expensive, but if you’re someone who creates a lot of digital art, the low-latency of the Apple Pencil and the palm rejection features are pretty awesome, but as is the case with most styluses, it isn’t quite the same compared to putting pen (or pencil) to actual paper.
We have been hearing for a while now that Apple does plan to eventually make the shift from using LCDs in their iPads to mini LEDs. Earlier rumors suggested that such devices might only arrive in 2021, but according to a report from The Elec, that could happen earlier than we thought.
If you were eyeing Apple’s new iPad Pro and were thinking about getting your hands on it, you might want to do so now. This is because for whatever reason, the tablet seems to be out of stock, at least on Apple’s website where according to the estimated delivery times, it will only be shipping out in the first half of July.
When Apple announced their new iPad Pro earlier this year, they also announced a new Magic Keyboard accessory. Unlike the Smart Keyboard, the new Magic Keyboard comes with a trackpad and uses scissor switches which will make it feel more like a proper keyboard compared to what was offered from before.
Right now none of Apple’s devices support 5G. That is expected to change later this year when Apple is set to launch their first 5G devices in the form of the iPhone 12. However, for iPad users looking for 5G connectivity, then you might have to wait until 2021 because according to a tweet by @L0vetodream, a 5G iPad Pro is set to drop in either Q1 or Q2 2021.
