Apple is famous for rolling out some of its leading tablets for its iPad range. Here are all the new iPads announced and expected in 2022.
As we know, there is a huge range of iPads on the market right now, all of which are fighting for your attention, and they are all worth it for a variety of reasons.Whether you want a premium or a lightweight tablet, there is one for you – and probably more than that on the go. So here is the full list of iPads already announced in 2022, or so-called on the go.
1. iPad Air
One of the key products announced at Apple’s Peak Performance event in March 2022 was the new iPad Air 5. The major improvements made were focused on performance, as the tablet is now packing the Apple M1 chip with muscle. This is the same chipset you will find in the pricier iPad Pro range, as well as on many Mac devices such as the 24-inch iMac.
Now there is a 5G option available next to the Wi-Fi version only, and another key upgrade is the adoption of the Center Stage front-facing camera, which should keep you and your classmates in the frame when using FaceTime.
However, if you were hoping for a screen upgrade in 2022 unfortunately you would be disappointed. This updated model has a 10.9-inch LCD panel similar to the iPad Air 4, and you’ll have to wait until at least the next generation if you want to see it with an OLED display.
Below are the specifications and features of ipad air 2022:
So far this is the only iPad that Apple has released in 2022, but read on for what other models we expect to see and the rumored upgrades that they could offer.
2. iPad Pro
The new version of the iPad Pro is expected to launch in 2022 (the launch window is not yet clear). While the new iPad Air is powered by the Apple M1 chip, it is thought that this premium tablet may be one of the first devices to work on the next generation M2 chip, which has not yet been released or announced yet but is expected to work. re-packing a bunch of performance enhancements that will set this tablet up over the competition.
In addition, many questions focus on the display. Last year there was a big change, as the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro model got a smaller LED screen. This year, we are wondering if the 11-inch version will be upgraded to look like its older brothers, or whether the entire range will receive OLED panels instead.
However, Industry analyst Ross Young has shown that the screens will remain unchanged, as the 12.9-inch “performs very well” so the manufacturer “does not need to make one for 11 inches”, at least this year. However, Other leaks have suggested that the next iPad Pro may pack wireless charging, and even redesign it.
Here are the rumored features of the iPad pro.
There’s also a chance to see a new addition to the 2022 iPad series. The details we have encountered so far seem to mean very small changes to the iPad 9, and the tenth generation is said to have maintained the same design as well, but we obviously can expect to see Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, and -A14 advanced processor.
However, The first significant 2020 iPad leak, features a 10.2-inch screen (like the 2021 model) and the same design as the previous one. One leak identifies the iPad 2022 as 5G for the first time in the range. This is a plausible claim and may be the biggest improvement this model has ever received.
The time between announcement and availability is very variable, but it is not expected to last a few weeks, so we can assume that the new iPad 2022 will arrive in stores before the end of September 2022, and perhaps even within a few days of the announcement.
However, The only rumors of the release date of the iPad 2022 so far point to the end of 2022, and that makes sense, as iPad 10.2 (2021) was unveiled on September 14, iPad 10.2 (2020) was announced on September 15 of its launch year, and I iPad 10.2 (2019) September 12th.
4. Ipad mini
The next iPad Mini could end up being the Mini (2023), not the 2022 model as we talk about here, but we hope Apple can release a new integrated tablet soon.
The latest iPad to be introduced was the iPad Air (2022), with a few major enhancements that can show us what the new Mini can look like, including 5G connectivity and M1 chipset.
The iPad Mini (2022) or (2023) will be the seventh model in range, so the Mini 7 in other words, or a single leak suggests it can remain as the iPad mini Pro.
However, The iPad mini (2021) is a great slate, but with the following changes the iPad mini (2022) would be far better still.
- Better battery life.
- More power.
- A stylus in the box.
- Face ID.
- mmWave support.
There aren’t many rumors about when the iPad mini (2022) could be launched, but one source said in November 2021 that Samsung Display had already sent a sample to Apple’s slate, suggesting it could arrive in 2022.
And in terms of price, one source says the iPad mini (2022) will cost less than the iPad mini (2021), starting at $ 499 / £ 479 / AU $ 749.
