Tech giant Apple is working on an eighth-generation iPad. The new device is all set to get another facelift as the company demonstrates in its new launches every year. However, there is a possibility that the next-level iPad will boast design and feature that will look quite familiar to people. Reports say that Apple will borrow some of the features and design from the iPadPro lineup. It will include thinner bezels and sensors for Face ID. The new device will also have the feasibility to support the Magic Keyboard. Apple had in September 2019 launched its seventh general iPad. It sports a larger 10.2-inch retina display and supports the full-size Smart Keyboard.

The Cupertino based company is likely to launch the much anticipated iPhone 12 in September. It is speculated that the company may launch the products alongside the new iPhone series. The new iPad could boast a 10.8-inch display. Apple will also take advantage of the design from iPad Pro to make it bezel slim. This means that there will be no Touch ID. However, reports are claiming that that device will have Touch ID on the power button. The next-level iPad will come with a USB Type-C port for charging the device, four microphones, and dual speakers. Apple may also add a second grille at the bottom.

On the back, the new iPad will include magnetic connectors. This will support Magic Keyboard. It will have a single-camera setup just like previous models. On the performance front, the device will include a newer processor than the A10. Meanwhile, Apple is likely to hold its customary event in a virtual form in mid-September. The company will launch the new iPad alongside the iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 12 series includes four models — iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. While iPhone 12 boasts a 5.4-inch display, iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro will feature a 6.1-inch display each. The remaining iPhone 12 Pro Max model will come with a display of 6.7-inch.
