Apple fans are already looking forward to releasing the upcoming iPad 7. The Cupertino-based tech giant is currently working on several devices, but these gadgets have remained shrouded in mystery.
A reputable blog argues that the next generation of iPad will use the same body like the iPad 6, which means that those who were expecting a radical design change will be quite disappointed since any visual differences between the two devices should be minimal.
Select sources claim that Apple may opt to increase the size of the display by removing the bezels and switching to an edge-to-edge panel. According to one source, the screen of the next iPad could reach up to 10 inches. This information is contested by another source which believes that the standard 9.7 inches size will be retained. At this point, it is unclear which of the sources is right.
iPad 7 Would Keep The 3.5mm Headphone Jack
The 2018 iPad Pro dropped the headphone jack. Many believed that this would mark the start of a trend with Apple aiming to remove the port from the entire iPad range. It seems that the next iPad will retain the 3.5-mm headphone jack, which is excellent news if you own a wired headset.
When it comes to performance, it is likely that Apple will bump the specs a bit to make the new device most attractive. The powerful A11 Bionic chip packs a decent punch, and it would be an excellent addition for the iPad, even more so if it coupled with a generous amount of RAM. A more substantial amount of RAM is also significant for those that use the multitask feature extensively since it would allow them to switch between several apps seamlessly.
It is also thought that Apple will retain the favorite Touch ID feature. Data mining has revealed that the iOS 12.2 beta contains references for three upcoming devices. One of them is a revamped iPod Touch and two tablets. It is clear that one of them is the iPad 7, and the other is rumored to be a new iPad mini.
