Don't Buy an iPad 9 Right Now: iPad 10 Is Imminent
Apple is believed to be on the verge of unveiling the tenth-generation iPad to replace the ninth-generation iPad, meaning prospective customers should hold off on a purchase until the model is released in the immediate future.
Apple released the ninth-generation iPad in September last year, and it typically updates the entry-level iPad annually. An all-new, tenth-generation iPad is on the cards for an Apple event in October, but it could be announced even sooner at Apple's "Far out" event on September 7.
The ninth-generation iPad released last year features a 10.2-inch display, an A13 Bionic chip, a 12-megapixel front camera with support for the Center Stage feature, and support for the first-generation Apple Pencil. Reports from display analyst Ross Young, alleged leaked renders, and various other rumors indicate that the tenth-generation iPad will offer:
- Slightly wider and thinner new design with flat sides and a rear camera bump
- A14 Bionic chip
- 10.5-inch display
- USB-C port
- 5G connectivity for cellular models
A questionable report also said that the iPad will feature a Touch ID power button and a FaceTime camera that works in landscape orientation. The tenth-generation iPad is shaping up to be a major update over the previous model, so iPad buyers should no longer buy the ninth-generation model if possible.
Mass production of the next-generation iPad is believed to already be reportedly underway, so launch is likely to be in the not-too-distant future.
