After years of iterative improvements of its entry-level iPad, many are expecting Apple to refresh its popular tablet’s design this year. Well, according to an alleged leak of the 2022 iPad’s design, there are some design refresh, though it still retains the dated look. 

Shared by MySmartPrice, the CAD renders are allegedly from a case maker and we can see that unlike its Air, Mini and Pro siblings, the entry-level iPad still retains a home button and thick bezels. In fact, it is pretty much the same design as the 2021 iPad, with just a slight change on the rear cameras which now has its own module with an LED flash. 


Previously, we reported that the upcoming entry-level iPad will ditch lightning with USB-C, which can’t be verified via the CAD renders as it only shows a red mark on the port. According to previous rumours on the device, it will be powered by the A14 Bionic SoC, the same chipset found on the iPhone 12 series as well as 5G support. 

However, do take this information with a grain of salt as nothing is confirmed as of yet. The new entry-level iPad is expected to arrive alongside the iPhone 14 series this September. so let’s just wait until then.
