Apple is expected to release a new and redesigned iPad Pro 2022 series this year and rumors have been circling about certain details.
One such speculation is the addition of the MagSafe wireless charging solution to the features.
In order to integrate the MagSafe wireless charging solution, the company will have to switch out of the current aluminum back design for a glass back. Apple, according to a report from 9to5Mac, is said to keep the aluminum back design while making the Apple logo larger to fit the magnetic contact pads and making it glass.
Additionally, 9to5Mac insiders say that Apple has already begun developing the prototypes of the iPad Pro 2022 with the glass logo design. It is also reported to support a much higher wattage compared to iPhones and features stronger magnets for safety.
Apple reportedly chose this design in order to keep the durability of the older models. A full glass back design would mean a more fragile and heavier device that is less resistant to damage as per source insiders.
The redesigned device is also expected to feature the Apple notch design akin to the iPhone 13 Pro and Macbook Pro M1. Leaked renders have also surfaced that show the device’s slimmer bezels, rounded corners, and notch centered on top of the screen.
The rendered images above reveal the back design of the new device that shows the enlarged Apple logo. It also shows that the camera design is somewhat similar to the iPhone 13 Pro lineup’s triple camera setup.
Keep in mind though that all the aforementioned information and rendered prototypes are still heavily speculated. We will need to wait for Apple’s next launch event for confirmation and additional details.
