Apple may launch an iPad Pro with wireless charging capabilities next year. The tech giant is currently working on a new iPad Pro and a new iPad Mini, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. Accordingly, Apple may replace the aluminum case of the iPad Pro with a glass design, similar to current iPhones, in order to enable wireless charging. As we will remember, the company started using glass surfaces on its smartphones with the iPhone 8.
In addition, Apple may make some changes for the new iPad Mini. The company plans to design the new iPad Mini with narrower bezels. It is also considering removing the home button on the tablet. Thus, we can say that the iPad Mini will have a smaller image. Apple aims to launch the new iPad Mini this year, and with the design change, the design of the iPad Mini has changed for the first time in six years.
In addition to all this, Mark Gurman says that Apple is also testing the MagSafe system for the iPad Pro. He also adds that the company is working on a reverse wireless charging feature that will allow using the Pro tablet to charge other devices. It is known that Apple has been working on this technology for a long time. It was even rumored that this technology will first be available on the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12.
Gurman also notes that Apple is developing an entry-level iPad for students alongside the iPad Pro and Mini. Apart from these, Apple’s plans include developing a wireless charging mat and developing wireless charging technologies that can charge over longer distances.
