A last-minute leak has insisted that the upcoming 10th-generation entry-level iPad will feature a landscape FaceTime camera.

An image of a screen protector allegedly for the upcoming ‌iPad‌ was shared on Twitter by Majin Bu and shows a horizontal cutout hole on the front for the ‌FaceTime‌ camera. The repositioning of the camera was previously rumored by the Japanese blog Mac Otakara. A landscape ‌FaceTime‌ camera would be better suited for video calls when the ‌iPad‌ is attached to an accessory, such as the Magic Keyboard.

Apple is expected to announce new M2 ‌iPad‌ Pros later today, as teased by Apple CEO Tim Cook and the Apple Store going down. An announcement of the 10th-generation ‌iPad‌, which is expected to feature an updated design and USB-C, is also possible. Stay tuned with MacRumors for ongoing coverage of today's expected announcement.

This is starting to look like the iPad to have. I hope they keep the same pricing. Why pay more for overpowered hardware running exactly the same software.

I think I’m one of the only people who uses their iPad in portrait mode 99% of the time and prefers the camera to be in portrait

I ALWAYS use it in portrait mode. Stop this nonsense.

Doubtful that there'll be a landscape camera. It's always been portrait.
Before anything new happened, there was always something else that happened.
