Sources broke the news that Apple is developing the next generation of entry-level iPad, the new iPad will be equipped with an A14 Bionic chip, support a 5G network, and will support the USB-C interface for the first time. The current entry-level iPad starts at $372, making it Apple’s cheapest iPad model. Because of this, the entry-level iPad’s design hasn’t changed much, and it doesn’t support the USB-C port, making it the last iPad model to use the Lightning port.
The entry-level iPad that Apple is developing is the tenth-generation product, code-named J272, and will be officially upgraded to a USB-C interface. Apple adopted the USB-C interface on the iPad Pro released in 2018, the iPad Air released in 2020 was upgraded to a USB-C interface, and the iPad mini released in 2021 was upgraded to a USB-C interface.
Supporting the USB-C interface means that the device is more scalable and has faster data transfer speeds. Currently, the ninth-generation iPad is equipped with a 10.2-inch LCD screen, and the next-generation iPad will use the same resolution screen as the iPad Air.
