According to the publication, the company plans to release a new iPad Pro in 2022, and the iPad Mini-at the end of this year. The main design change for the iPad Pro is the introduction of a glass back panel instead of the current aluminum body, as well as wireless charging. The updated iPad Mini, in turn, will have narrower screen borders.
It is noted that the iPad over the past year brings Apple a significant profit, as people were looking for new ways to work, study and have fun at home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Tablet sales jumped 43% in the last six months of 2020. The increase continued in the first three months of 2021 when tablets brought in $7.8 billion — up 79% from the same quarter a year earlier.
Earlier it was reported that the iOS 14.6 update led to too fast battery discharge in a number of iPhone models. Several users of the official Apple tech support forum reported problems with the battery.
