As the presentation of the 10th generation iPad, more and more leaks concerning the device appear. On this occasion there is a strong rumor that points to Major changes to the physical design. For context, an alleged render of the device was leaked earlier this August, revealing a chassis that was both wider and thinner than that of the ninth-generation iPad. Naturally, the story does not end here and there are other much more noticeable changes to the design.
The new iPad would move the location of its camera and Touch ID fingerprint sensor
In the case of the 10th generation iPad camera, there is talk that will be moved to the right edge of the tablet; This is to make it easier to use FaceTime in wide (horizontal) mode, and apparently Center Stage’s framing feature works better in that position. Since the standard version of the 10th generation iPad most likely does not have Face ID either, this location change would not affect anything.
Needless to say, this would break with the current design line, which places the front camera at the top. For his part, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor would migrate to the side, combining with the power button for convenience, in the style of the iPad Mini.
However, it is our duty to warn that at the moment none of the veracity of these rumors is in question; The same source that released this information acknowledges this. Therefore, the reality could be different.
With that said, we can safely expect leaks to increase in the coming weeks, especially when taking into account the September Apple eventin which the iPhone 14 will be released and who knows, perhaps also the new iPad.
