Rumor has it Apple is gearing up to launch a new 10.2-inch iPad (2019) and updated iPad Pro models later this year. Details about these devices remain pretty scarce at the moment but a new report suggests Apple could be planning some very important camera upgrades.
The iPad (2019) could feature a dual-camera setup
According to Mac Otakara (translated) who cites a supplier within China, there’s a “possibility” the iPad (2019) model will ship with an all-new dual-camera setup on the rear which may be borrowed from the iPhone XR’s successor.

Because Apple typically releases iPad Pro upgrades every 1.5 years and the latest versions were only introduced last October, the expectation was that next-gen models wouldn’t arrive until March 2020 at the earliest. But Mac Otakara suggests they’re actually on track for 2019.

The iPad (2019) is expected to go official alongside the iPhone 11 series at Apple’s hardware event next month. The company is yet to send out invites but the expectation is that it’ll take place on Tuesday, September 10. Pre-orders for both the iPad and iPhones should kick off on Friday, September 13 with a release happening seven days later on Friday, September 20.
