Expected Upgrades from the next iPad and iPad Pro

Apple’s iPad lineup is still due for a 2022 upgrade. The midrange iPad Air got an M1 chip back in the spring, but the entry-level iPad and the iPad Pro are in a holding pattern until the fall. ⁠

The iPhone 14 and Apple Watch 8 could be unveiled in September, while the iPads might be saved for October, alongside an update to iPadOS 16. ⁠

The entry-level iPad could get a significant upgrade, based on the latest reports from Mark Gurman and 9to5Mac. Its design could get an upgrade to match the iPad Mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro models. That could mean flatter edges, a curved-corner display, USB-C charging, maybe a side-placed Touch ID button, and the A14 chip that was in the last-gen iPad Air.⁠

The iPad Pro, meanwhile, hasn’t seen a refresh since spring 2021. Reports point to the Pros getting the M2 chip that was recently launched in the MacBook line. The 11- and 12.9-inch iPads could be getting OLED displays in some future year upgrades. ⁠
