redesigned 2022 ipad might hold onto home button

The 10.2-inch iPad expected in fall 2022 will supposedly get a facelift. Leaked CAD drawing indicate the upcoming tablet will have a larger screen and the flat edges Apple includes in its other tablets.

But the low-cost iPad 10 will allegedly remain the last iPadOS device with a Home button even after the redesign.

2022 iPad adds flat edges but keeps Home button

The $329 price makes the 10.2-inch iPad very popular. It’s one of Apple’s cheapest computers but offers plenty of capabilities and decent performance.

The tenth version will apparently keep much of what makes the device popular, but with a new look. CAD drawings and renders leaked to Mysmartprice show flat edges in place of the curved ones in the iPad 9.

The width is supposedly increasing marginally. It’ll be 9.8 inches by 7.0 in. and 0.27 in. thick. The current version is 9.8 in. by 6.8 in. by 0.29 in., so the new version will also be slightly thinner.

Previous rumors have indicated that the screen is increasing to 10.5 inches. The leaked CAD images show the display is wider than the one in the current model, but not taller.

When redesigning previous tablets, Apple has made room for more screen by removing the Home button. That’s apparently not happening with the iPad 10.

Other leaks have pointed to the 2022 budget iPad making the switch to USB-C in place of a Lightning port. The CAD drawings and renders don’t confirm this either way.

Apple is allegedly adding a flash to the camera in the 2022 iPad. And the renders also show the camera is going into a “hump,” strongly suggesting it’s getting a resolution upgrade from the current 8 megapixel shooter.

Earlier unconfirmed reports indicated the tablet will use an Apple A14 processor, up from the Apple A13 chip in the current model.

4G cellular-wireless access has been an option in the tablet line for many years, and the next-gen model will up that to 5G. All current iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad Pro versions already the offer a 5G option.

Apple released a new budget tablet every year going back to 2017. If it sticks with that pattern, the iPad 10 with USB-C will launch in fall 2022. Whether there’ll be a price increase is anyone’s guess.
