New fan-made concept renderings of the expected 2022 Apple iPad Pro have been shared on social media, showing the rumored design changes that could occur with the latest edition of the premium tablet series. Along with some design refinements, it’s believed the next iPad Pro will sport Apple’s M2 SoC.

There have been quite a few rumors in regard to the next iteration of the iPad Pro, including at least two considerable design changes. Talented designer Volodymyr has made these rumors real by producing a series of renderings of the 2022 Apple iPad Pro, with the slate appearing in both space gray and silver colorways, just like the current M1-based iPad Pro.

Arguably the first thing to notice is the notch in the display, which considering Apple’s current design scheme with its product line, is practically inevitable at this point. However, not only does the notch look good in the concept iPad Pro, allowing for much slimmer bezels, but as pointed out by Tom’s Guide its presence will also be handy for FaceID authentication.

The other design takeaway to be had in these sleek-looking representations of the M2 iPad Pro is the size and orientation of the Apple logo. While the M1 iPad Pro has a vertically oriented Apple logo, the concept variant has a horizontally oriented symbol that is considerably larger. The horizontal design orientation (landscape mode) for the 2022 iPad Pro has been rumored for some time while it’s believed the premium tablet will come with a larger glass logo for wireless charging.

The overall result is an attractive slate that will no doubt appeal to the masses waiting for a redesigned iPad Pro. It has been suggested that Apple could unleash the device at an event taking place in fall, by which time the current 11-inch and 12.9-inch M1 models will be nearing 16 months since release (May 2021).
