An Apple analyst has proclaimed that future iPad Pro tablets will adopt a landscape-oriented design, moving away from the current preference for portrait design. Apparently, this change from portrait mode to landscape will affect both the hardware and software design of a future Apple iPad Pro.

Apple has already blown away iPad Pro fans once this year by launching the tablet refreshed with the powerful M1 Apple Silicon. Now it appears there are further grand plans in the pipeline, which include a move away from the portrait orientation of current models. Noted leaker and analyst @dylandkt has been offering up some interesting design details about future iPad Pro devices that will surely delight many fans of the series.

We already reported that it’s possible next year’s Apple iPad Pro might be fitted with a glass back for wireless charging enhancements, but further design details were thin on the ground. However, it is now claimed that a future iPad Pro (possibly a 2022 model but unconfirmed) will be designed with landscape use in mind. This means landscape mode will be the default mode for user interaction both in terms of software and hardware.

A “horizontally placed Apple logo” will be the first sign that the future iPad Pro tablet has adopted a landscape design, while the same commenter also reckons that the camera will have a “horizontal” positioning as well. Presumably, this simply means the sensor will be rotated by 90 degrees, thus offering a wider field of view. These changes may or may not occur with the next-generation iPad Pro tablets, but they are seemingly “in the works”.
