Apple could release at least two new iPads this year, including a cheaper version of the iPad mini, which hasnt been updated since 2015, according to Bloomberg. The other upcoming iPad reportedly has a 10-inch screen with a faster processor and might be released as soon as this spring. That device would keep its Lightning port.
Bloomberg also reports that an upgraded iPad Pro is planned for spring 2020 and would introduce a laser-powered 3D camera to Apple devices. Apple also seems to be focusing on the iPad for the next version of iOS, iOS 13, which is reported to include iPad-specific updates, like a new home screen and tabbed apps, as well as improvements to file management.
