According to claimed leaked schematics, the eight-generation 10.8-inch iPad will have thinner bezels, Face ID sensors, and no Touch ID. There will be dual speakers, USB C connector, a single camera on the back, and inductive charging capability.
Apple is said to be working on a new eighth-generation iPad model that may launch as early as September. Ahead of the rumoured launch, 91mobiles has received the design schematics of the upcoming iPad 2020 from a trusted source. The design shows the next-gen model will look quite like the iPad Pro 2020 — it will have thinner bezels around the screen, Face ID sensors above the display, and no Touch ID fingerprint sensor. On the back will be a single camera with LED flash; the schematics also show the iPad 2020 will have magnetic connectors on the back for Magic Keyboard support.
