Apple has been rumored to introduce new iPad models later this month, which has even been corroborated by 9to5Mac. Now, accessory makers have begun selling cases for a redesigned (and non-existent) 10th generation iPad ahead of the official launch, which suggests that the new products are indeed coming soon.
As noted by Japanese website MacOtaraka, popular accessory manufacturer ESR has added new cases for the 10th generation iPad to its Amazon Japan store webpage. While the iPad renders are unlikely to be official, the case give us an idea of what to expect for the new entry-level iPad model.
For example, the cases have a larger cutout for the camera module, which is similar to that on the iPad Air 4 and iPad Air 5. One of the cases attaches to the iPad magnetically, while another, more robust case has cutouts for the new Power button with Touch ID and for the magnetic Apple Pencil charger on the side, which suggests that this iPad will have the same design as more modern iPads.
ESR notes in the product description that the new cases are not compatible with older models of the entry-level iPad, which again corroborates the new design.
Earlier this year, 9to5Mac revealed exclusive details about the 10th generation iPad. According to our sources, iPad 10 (codenamed J272) will be powered by the A14 Bionic chip, which is about 30% faster than the A13 chip that powers the 9th generation iPad. The new entry-level iPad is also expected to support 5G connectivity, a USB-C port instead of Lightning, a slightly larger display, and better cameras.
