Apple is prototyping next-generation iPad Pro models with a new premium glass back design reports Bloomberg. The current iPad Pro design was introduced in 2018 and this upgrade would be evolutionary, rather than bring any major changes in appearance. It would bring the iPad Pro range in line with the iPhone Pro range which also features a premium glass back finish.

As with the iPhone Pro range, the rear glass has been added to facilitate wireless charging capabilities on the iPad Pro. According to Bloomberg, it would use a system similar to, if not identical to Apple’s MagSafe charging system introduced on the iPhone 12 range. It is also possible that Apple will add reverse wireless charging to the iPad Pro as well, allowing it to charge at least one other device.

The same Bloomberg report also said that Apple’s all-new iPad mini is expected to be unveiled later this year. It will feature slimmer bezels in line with the iPad Pro and iPad Air models and similarly will drop the home button. Touch ID incorporated into the power button will likely be used for biometric authentication. The entry level iPad is also getting a minor revision to make it a little slimmer, and presumably, lighter.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
