Apple appears to be carrying the iPhone theme on to the iPads with many comparable specifications or features. The company is set to launch a new tablet in March 2020, which is the iPad Pro, and its renders have been shared by Twitter handle OnLeaks which tends to get these correct on many occasions. The leaked renders and rumors already in the public domain indicate there will be two sizes of the iPad Pro, 11-inch and 12.9-inch. More details have been shared in the post.

The Triple Camera Setup Quite Prominent
Of the things you notice from these newest renders of the iPad Pro, the square bump in the rear housing three sensors is probably what catches your attention almost immediately. As for the iPad’s dimensions, it appears that Apple has not made any changes to the display sizes from the previous year’s models, 11-inch and 12.9-inch. The thickness of the device certainly varies. The average thickness is 5.9mm but where the camera bump is located, it is 7.8mm. The overall dimensions read 248mm x 178mm x 5.9mm.
The other design aspect to be noticed is the aluminum back cover. This is for the 11-inch iPad Pro set to be unveiled in March 2020. The other one with the 12.9-inch display is expected to come with a glass panel in the rear. Here too, Apple seems to have followed the pattern from the iPhones. There is the prediction that the processor to be fitted in these iPads of 2020 will be the same A13X chipset that is present in the iPhone 11 series. This is nothing new as Apple has adopted this practice of fitting identical processors in the iPhones and iPads, whichever is the latest version of chipset available with it.
While these are the details available from these new renders, there are still a few things missing. One of them is the front-facing camera. Even in the triple camera setup seen here, there is no hint on the sizes or resolution of the sensors being fitted.
The focus may still be on the release of the budget phone iPhone SE2 or iPhone 9 as far as the launch event in March is concerned. iPads too are an important part of Apple’s product portfolio and the company has been enjoying that for many years. The other significant feature people would be keen to know will be if there is an LTE version of the iPad in 2020 and if it would be capable of functioning in the 5G environment.
