Apple's next cheap iPad: this will be according to leaks — 2022

We already know very well all theApple iPad 2020 Features, a tablet that was launched at the end of last year and that today is still the company's cheapest model. But what about his successor? In these months they have been getting to know each other details about the 9th generation iPad , which will also be known as iPad 2021, and the truth is that it will bring interesting changes for those who are not looking for the most advanced tablet model. We go over everything in this article.

First of all, when will it be released and what would be its price?

Apple had us used to launching its iPad entry range in the first quarter of the year, but in both 2019 and 2020 it set September such as its presentation and release date. If we take into account how advanced the year is already, we can assume that the ninth month of the year will again be chosen to launch the device. It will do so, possibly, taking advantage of the special event with which the company will also present the new Apple Watch Series 7 and the expected iPhone this year. And, except for a major surprise, it will be launched on the market at the end of that same month.

Regarding the price, nothing has been leaked, neither that it will go up, nor that it will go down. Although it is true that there is usually no data about it until its launch, there is nothing to predict that it will increase. The current model is based on €379 , which at the moment would also be the starting price of the iPad 9. And we seriously doubt the increase due to the good work the company has done in making this its cheapest tablet and how well it seems to be selling.

Possible salient features

The two previous data is not that they are not important, in fact they are very important, although it is evident that in the end what will matter most will be how this tablet behaves on a day-to-day basis. Normally Apple does a very curious thing with its tablets and that is to gradually implement improvements in the 'Pro' models, which later reach the 'Air' range and later inherit the input iPad such as the ninth generation. This year won't be the one where the frames are removed and the new design standard is adopted, but that's not to say there won't be any notable changes.

According to some specialists close to Apple, this year there will be many moredifferences between the iPad 2020 and 2021, betting on a Identical design to the 2019 iPad Air. That is, with a Home button that would integrate Touch ID again, pronounced frames on the front and an IPS Retina screen that would have 10.5 inches leaving behind the 10.2 that mounts the current eighth generation iPad. would be compatible with Apple Pencil 1 and you would also have official accessories at your fingertips as you already have with the Smart Keyboard.

iPad Air 2019

iPad Air 3rd gen. what the 9th gen iPad would look like.

At the performance level, a considerable improvement is expected by introducing the chip A13 Bionic , the same one that the iPhone 11 mounted in its day and that would be an improvement over the current A12 Bionic. It is not that you will notice a huge difference in terms of performance, but in certain tasks you will notice greater fluidity and it will make this iPad last longer than the previous one in terms of years of updates. Other data such as Storage capacity They are still a mystery, will they bet on starting at 64 GB like that iPad Air from 2 years ago or will they continue with the 32 GB of the current 'cheap' iPad?

We want to emphasize that in the end all these are leaks and rumors, without having anything official at the moment because Apple does not usually advance anything about its next devices. However, the sources are usually right in these cases and the margin of error that could exist regarding these leaks and what ends up being seems to be minimal. Therefore we can already get an idea of ​​what will be the new best-selling iPad from the Californian company.
