Apple’s 2022 iPad is getting a larger 10.5-inch display, USB-C port and 5G

The rumor: Apple is planning the biggest refresh in years for their cheapest iPad, according to 9to5Mac (82.8% accurate, source).


  • Apple is nixing the Lightning port in favor of USB-C, so the entire iPad lineup will now feature the same connector
  • There’s a larger 10.5-inch display coming, which Ross Young (92.9% accurate) has also reported
  • An A14 Bionic chip will power the device and should be around 30% faster than the current A13 processor
  • Finally, cellular models will also be the first to support 5G connectivity

Sam’s take: This is going to be a huge leap forward for Apple’s $329 iPad. 10.5-inch screen, USB-C and A14? The sweetness of the cheapest iPad just keeps getting sweeter. Going to be an even crazier value when the device drops later this year!
