Will The iPad Air 5 Be Released Soon? iPad Air 5 With A15, 5G & More – New iPad Pro With Wireless Charging Via Glass Apple Logo

Apple's tablet division is rather broad: next to the basic entry level iPad, the company also offers mini, Air, and Pro variations of the device for each purpose and budget. In comparison to some of the other iPad models, the 4th generation iPad Air has fallen a little behind: Some of the iPad mini's features are missing on the 10.9" tablet. According to a new report, Cupertino is already working on a fix to the disparity. Additionally, it also looks as if the iPad Pro is soon to receive an upgrade – wireless charging capabilities.

iPad Air 5 With New Cameras, A15, & 5G
As per "trustworthy sources" in China, Macotakara recently revealed a few new details concerning the iPad Air 5: The tablet will be equipped with an A15 bionic chip as well as an improved 12-megapixel wide-angle lens front camera which will support "follow mode", also known as "center stage". The camera directs its focus towards people during video calls and is also available for usage by third-party applications. The camera on the back of the device will receive support from a quad-LED with True Tone flash. 5G should also be on board and the announcement of the new tablet should arrive alongside the iPhone SE 3 this spring.

iPad Pro With Aluminum Backside & Glass Apple Logo?
Last year, Mark Gurman and Debby Wu from Bloomberg announced that Apple was testing an iPad with a glass backside. This step would come with a feature which, up until now, has been exclusive to the Apple Watch (and all iPhone models since the iPhone 12). As reported by 9to5Mac, such a design would make it possible to charge an iPad wirelessly for the first time. Although Apple has since scrapped the aforementioned design – Cupertino may just keep one aspect of it, a glass Apple logo. An alleged prototype exists with a MagSafe compatible glass logo. The new iPad Pro would rely on stronger magnets than the iPhone to support the feature, along with also charging faster. According to 9to5Mac, the iPad Pro is also set to receive a larger battery, a new camera module similar to the iPhone 13's, and a new chip. The new chip could possibly be the M2 set for release with the next MacBook Air.
