Still rumors about new Apple devices. According to the Japanese blog Mac Otakara, the new iPad 10 could be equipped with a Touch ID power button and a relocated FaceTime camera. A report citing several Chinese sources, according to which renders shared earlier this year do not accurately describe the location of the two details on the device. So let’s go find out more.
iPad 10: Touch ID power button and repositioned front camera
Renderings shared so far have always shown an iPad 10 with the traditional Home Touch ID button in the bottom bezel, but the Mac Otakara portal suggests that Apple’s new device may have an entirely different design. The Touch ID power button, in fact, may be on the edge top of the chassis, just like in the latest iPad Air and iPad mini models. And that’s not all. According to the report, the FaceTime camera could be positioned in the right frame of the device, so as to allow it use horizontally. The reason? It would appear that the Center Stage function by Apple, which allows you to keep a user centered within the frame during video calls, work better when an iPad is placed in landscape orientation. And the new position would be perfectly suited to this need.
Despite the addition of these details, it would seem that the original renderings accurately showed the overall dimensions of the new iPad 10. Apparently, in fact, this could arrive on the market with the equipment of a 10.5-inch display, significantly larger than the current iPad 9 – whose screen measures 10.2 inches -. Beyond that, Apple’s new device should also have one porta USB-Cand chip A14 Bionic, 5G support on cellular models, thinner bezels and flat edges. Interesting features, which perhaps we could discover soon, given that the production of the tenth generation of iPad seems to be already underway. From what we know, Apple could announce the new device in October, especially considering the delay in the release of iPadOS 16. In short, we just have to wait.
