There are many reports that Apple is about to launch the iPad Pro. The new claim is that the iPad Pro will support wireless charging. The report came from none other than Bloomberg journalist and longtime Apple tracker Mark Gurman. Previously Debby Wu reported that Apple has set out to test a new iPad Pro with wireless charging on the glass back.
While the new iPad Pro still feature wireless charging, 9to5Mac reported that Apple may end up scrapping the glass-backed design after testing due to concerns about fragility. According to sources familiar with Apple’s design plans, Apple has now developed an iPad Pro prototype with a larger Apple logo made of glass, which would still allow for wireless charging.
One of the prototypes is said to feature MagSafe, which is stronger magnetically than the magnets on the iPhone to prevent accidental damage, and it is also said to support faster wireless charging than the MagSafe on the iPhone.
Apple is likely to maintain two different sizes for the iPad Pro that will be 11-inch and 12.9-inch. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the upgrade would be more noticeable for the 11-inch model in which the company will switch the LCD panel for a mini LCD, as it did in 2021 with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The processor of the iPad Pro will naturally be updated, whether it will use the new generation of entry-level M2, or the M1 Pro or M1 Max. Considering that the size of the iPad Pro is not as spacious as that of the MacBook, the entry-level M2 or M1 Pro is more likely to use. For its storage capabilities, it’s likely that Apple will maintain the same options, which means 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, 2TB.
