Renders Depict Alleged Design of 2020 11 and 12.9-Inch iPad Pro Models With Triple-Lens Cameras

Apple is rumored to be working on updated 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with iPhone-style triple-lens cameras, and alleged renderings of the new iPads have been shared by iGeeksblog and OnLeaks.

The new ‌iPad Pro‌ models are said to feature the same dimensions as the 2018 ‌iPad Pro‌ models, and based on the renders, the design will also be close to identical with the exception of a triple-lens camera.


There were some rumors indicating Apple would release new ‌iPad Pro‌ models in 2019, but that didn't happen, and current information from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests Apple plans to release an ‌iPad Pro‌ update during the first half of 2020.


We've already seen dummy models said to be of the new ‌iPad Pro‌ models, which featured a triple-lens camera, but those may not be quite accurate when it comes to the camera design.

The new ‌iPad Pro‌ models could potentially feature a time-of-flight (ToF) camera system that is also rumored to be coming to 2020 iPhones. A time-of-flight camera system uses a laser to determine the distance between objects to create a 3D image of the surrounding area.

This kind of technology could allow for more accurate depth perception, improved augmented reality capabilities, and perhaps photos with more advanced depth information.


The new ‌iPad Pro‌ models are rumored to be coming in the first half of 2020 and the time-of-flight camera is expected to be a 2020 iPhone feature, so it's not entirely clear if Apple plans to put the time-of-flight functionality in the iPad as the company may first want to bring the feature to the ‌iPhone‌.


If there is no time-of-flight camera capability, the ‌iPad Pro‌ models could still get the same triple-lens camera system that's in the current iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models, featuring telephoto, wide-angle, and ultra wide-angle lenses.

We've also heard that in late 2019, Apple could be planning to release a 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ with a mini-LED display, so it's not clear if Apple will release two ‌iPad Pro‌ updates in 2019 or if the early 2020 release timeline includes just the 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ model.

Update: According to OnLeaks, the ‌iPad Pro‌ models were rendered with both aluminum and glass backings because he has no information on the casing material, so he wanted to depict both possibilities. The original iGeeksblog article suggested that one ‌iPad Pro‌ model would have a glass backing and one would have an aluminum backing, which is incorrect. Our article has been updated to reflect this new information.

Oh Sweet Baby Yoda, if there’s one thing I always forget even exists on my iPads, it’s the camera. Now there will be more lenses for me to forget and possibly crack. Oh well, I am not the world. I’m sure plenty of people will love this and I do believe it was inevitable. I’m actually for it, if it makes the iPad even more versatile and functional for other users.

My New Year's resolution is to not buy any tech in 2020 unless something has stopped working. So no iPhones, iPads, Macs, Headphones, smart home accessories etc. Just to test my will power and resolve. Let's see.

I've never taken a picture with an iPad Pro. Not even to scan a document. iPhone is easier to hold for that purpose.

Also, glass back? Why? Reverse wireless charging?

Forget the camera. Add an additional 1mm to the thickness for a bigger battery. The iPhone got an additional five hours. The iPad should get that too. Come on, Apple.??

I don't need a good camera on an iPad, I'd rather it be lower quality and perfectly flat.

iPad sales of late say otherwise. iPad Pro has been a smash hit for Apple and no reason to think this won't be too.

3 questions.

1. Have you ever said anything negative about Apple?

2. What is your definition of smash hit?

3. Can you share with us your specific sales figures of the iPad Pro?
