iPad 2022 – the 10th generation iPad – could drop in just a few weeks if Apple sticks to its usual timetable, and, as with every anticipated Apple product launch, there are rumors swirling about what’s in store. Huh. When it comes to the iPad, updates often offer a performance boost and enhance the screen, but we generally expect different devices in the range to look different with perhaps a new color.
But there are some surprises in the latest leaked iPad 2022 CAD renders (allegedly – as always, we have to take these things with a pinch of salt). The screen, for one, is big. It also appears to have quad speakers and an LED flash. But we’ve noticed something even more curious about the images. To compare them to current models, see our iPad 10.2-inch (9th generation) review And our iPad vs iPad Mini (2021) comparison.

The CAD renders were shared on mysmartprice (opens in new tab) which it claims to have been received from the case maker. If real, they will be seen showing the size of the upcoming 10th generation iPad tablet (see above). Apparently, the iPad 2022 will be wider but thinner than the current device, measuring 248.62 x 179.50 x 6.98 mm. It will get large bezels, smooth flat edges and quad-speaker setup on all sides.
The rear looks much the same as it does now but with an LED flash and a camera island. But let’s turn to the ports. At first, it seems that something is missing. There is no sign of a 3.5mm headphone jack in the renders. Now, this may not be surprising considering that Apple has already removed such ports from its other iPads and iPhones, but let’s remember that this is the entry-level iPad – this model is a great choice for kids, schools and more. Most likely to be commonly used. By those who don’t want to fork out for wireless earphones. The obvious addition of quad-speaker support should result in a significant increase in audio quality, but parents can’t find this much of a solution.

Our big question, however, is which iPad will be the changing port in 2022. In the CAD renders, the charging port is covered with a red notch, which adds to the mystery. We’ve already declared the Apple Lightning charger dead due to upcoming European requirements to charge all devices via USB-C from 2024, so we’re wondering if Apple will stop replacing the charging port on the standard iPad. First now decided to change it. ,

We’ll just have to wait and see if these iPad leaks are the real deal. Apple is widely expected to announce its next product launch in September if it sticks to its usual calendar of launch events.
