If we listen to the rumours, Apple has been determined to release an iPad Pro with wireless charging for months. But that means the iPad has a glass back, just like iPhones. And this is a problem: it’s too delicate glass to put in 11 and 12.9 inch devices.
Above all, wireless charging must make sense
Sources at 9to5Mac have had access to what Apple is deciding on this, and it’s possible the iPad Pro with wireless charging was eventually ruled out after testing several tablet prototypes. one of these prototypes I would use glass in the Apple logo, which would be a little larger and allow faster charging than the iPhone.
These prototypes would also have a larger battery and a camera module like that of the iPhone 13
The alternative to the rear window is to continue with the aluminum one we have now, but that would prevent this wireless charging. And an iPad is something that’s usually found in the living room or lying on the couch, more at risk of falls. This is the dilemma.
The source thinks these new iPad Pros will launch mid 2022, embedding the M1 chip or even an M2 chip that we would already know thanks to the launch of a new generation of redesigned MacBook Air. The question that remains then is whether we will finally see wireless charging in them. For now it remains a mystery.
