The rumor: After just updating the cheapest iPad in September, there are already plans to update it again in early 2021, according to cnBeta (61.5% accurate).
Here are the purported specs:
- 10.5-inch display in a ‘lighter and thinner design’
- A13 processor with 4GB RAM
- 64GB base storage
- The new iPad could release as soon as Spring 2021
Our take: After reviewing cnBeta’s track record and adding the site to our database, they do have a brief track record with a handful of hits over misses. I could definitely see Apple upgrading the iPad 9 to the iPad Air 3’s design (which also had a 10.5-inch display). And hopefully the display finally gets laminated.
