In Apple, four ranges of iPad are currently available. However, while the Pro, Mini and Air versions are often talked about, the classic iPad tends to be put aside. However, the seventh generation of the iPad (2019), with the new 10.2-inch screen size, is sold from just € 389 … A very convincing asset for users.
In this article, we focus on its potential successor, the future iPad 2020. We have grouped all the rumours about its release date, its price and its design.

When Will The iPad 2020 Be Released?
While the new iPhone releases are predictable, those of the iPad is much less so.
Since the return of the original model in 2017, we have witnessed a launch in March 2018 and another in September 2019.
The Apple firm may be known for organizing independent events for the introduction of its tablets, we would not be surprised to discover a new iPad in September 2020, at the same time as the iPhone 12.
The iPad Air, it should be released in March 2020 just like the iPhone SE 2.
How Much Will The iPad 2020 Cost?
The iPad 2019 is sold from €389 for 32 GB in Wi-Fi and up to €629 for 128 GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular.
Regarding the iPad 2020, Apple should opt for a similar price, especially if it is a simple update but we are never immune to rising costs.
What will the iPad 2020 look like?
Just like the iPhone, or the Mac, we would like to see a significant reduction in the edges of the iPad 2020, as was the case with the iPad Pro.
However, such a change would necessarily increase the sale price.
For the iPad 2020, its screen should not be enlarged. Indeed, adding a size would have the effect of keeping users away from the Pro, a situation that the brand would like to avoid at all costs.
On the camera side, we could see some nice improvements to its sensors.
Pro models have shown how easy it is to integrate iPhone-like image quality into tablets.
The Apple Pencil is compatible with all iPads of 2019. However, it is unlikely that we will have the pleasure of enjoying its second generation.
Apple should guarantee the exclusivity of its Pencil 2 to the iPad Pro until the launch of an even more recent version.
Potential iPad 2020 Features
As with most new iOS and macOS devices, we expect updates from the iPad.
As for the processor, the 10.2-inch model has curiously remained faithful to the A10 Fusion chip of its predecessor. The iPad 2020 could follow this direction.
Pro Motion is one of the highlights of the latest iPad Pro. It allows you to dynamically adjust the refresh rate of your screen up to 120 Hz, depending on the tasks performed.
While Apple’s competitors are also starting to equip their mid-range phones with such a technical characteristic, it will probably be necessary to be patient before it makes its way to cheap tablets.
However, the iPad is the only tablet of the brand that does not yet have True Tone, so it is not impossible that it will be found in 2020.
This technology automatically adjusts the display of your iPad relative to the lighting conditions. As a result, you will perceive a better balance between the colours and the brightness of your screen.
Finally, the disappearance of TouchID is to be considered, the introduction of FaceID could then be the great novelty of the iPad 2020.
