Apple's rumoured 10th-generation iPad isn't due to launch until later this month – but that hasn't stopped one accessory maker showing off a case for Cupertino's next tablet.
The "Forest Green" case by global accessory manufacturer ESR includes a render of rumoured iPad 10th Generation. That render may not be entirely accurate, but it does offer a few interesting clues as to the possible design of Apple's next slate.
Firstly, the larger cutout for the camera module implies that Apple has jacked-up the new iPad's photography skills, potentially putting it on a par with the iPad Air 4 and iPad Air 5.
The case also seems to snap on to the iPad magnetically, and boasts cut-outs for the rumoured Power button with Touch ID as well as the magnetic Apple Pencil charger/connector on the long side of the iPad.
Elsewhere, ESR says the case offers dual stand modes (for writing and viewing), "360-degree protection" from bumps and scratches, plus the usual "Instant Auto Wake/Sleep" function. The company also notes that it is "only compatible with iPad 10th Generation (2022)".
Apple's next entry-level iPad is expected to feature 5G, a A14 chip that's 30% faster than its predecessor, an expanded 10.5-inch display and a USB-C – rather than Lightning – port for charging. There's also talk of Apple ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack.
iPad 10 rumours have been gathering pace for a while now. Most analysts believe that Apple will announce the 10th Generation tablet, alongside a new iPad Pro, this month. Keep an eye on our iPad (2022) page for all the latest leaks and rumours.
