Apple unveiled the fifth-generation iPad Pro in April this year with the launch of the iPad Pro 12.9-inch and iPad Pro 11-inch. The two tablets created quite a stir in the market by offering features such as the Apple M1 chip and the mini-LED display (on the bigger model). While it hasn’t even been two months since the launch of the new iPad Pro models, today we already have news regarding the next generation of the tablet. A new report from Bloomberg details a few key features of the upcoming iPad Pro that will set it apart from the current models.

Upcoming iPad Pro to feature wireless charging

According to the publication, the new version of the iPad Pro will feature wireless charging. To make the iPad Pro compatible with wireless charging, Apple will use a glass back panel for the tablet, unlike the current iPads that have an aluminum back panel. It claims that Apple is testing a magnetic charging system for the upcoming iPad Pro similar to MagSafe in the iPhone 12 series. That’s not all. The report says that Apple might even implement reverse wireless charging in the next iPad Pro so that the tablet itself will serve as a wireless charging pad for other devices.

Redesigned iPad Mini and iPad 10.2-inch to launch by the end of 2021

Along with information on the next generation of the iPad Pro, Bloomberg has also revealed some details regarding the iPad Mini and the iPad 10.2-inch. According to the publication, Apple is working on a new iPad Mini, which will bring with it an all-new design with thinner bezels. As for the iPad 10.2-inch, the report claims that the Cupertino-based tech giant is working on a thinner version of the tablet.
