With September being around the corner, Apple's usual scheduling this year is all over the place. Instead of announcing the iPhone around the mid of September, Apple is apparently pushing that event to October and instead, releasing new Apple Watches and iPads in September via a press release! Due to the pandemic, Apple is said to have pushed back the event due to constraints The iPhone event is planned to be online as Apple posted a test video on its YouTube channel the other week.
It's going to be a busy holiday period for Apple with all new products expecting to be announced. With that, we have supposedly got a look of the new iPad with slimmer bezels, TouchID in the power button and more...
In a leaked pamphlet shown by twitter user @duanrui you can see some changes that have been rumoured for the cheaper iPad line!
- New iPad Pro like design with slimmer bezels
- TouchID in the power button
- USB C
- Smart connector on the back of the device
- Gestures for button devices
- Apple Pencil 2 support
The most surprising news about this leak is the inclusion of TouchID. Apple has been rumoured to add FaceID to all of its line ups, including Macs so I find it a little strange that Apple has opted for a TouchID sensor in the power button instead. Apple could have implemented TouchID to save cost in the new iPad, so we will have to see how it holds up in real-world use. We will have to wait a little longer to find out for sure. Jon Prosser has said the press release should happen Sep 7th.
