A new report claims the next-generation iPad Pro could boast a triple-lens camera, while the entry-level iPad could gain a dual-lens camera.
The new rumor, reported by Japanese blog Mac Otakara over the weekend, is based on a Chinese supply source that claims the fourth-generation iPad Pro will gain the same multi-sensor camera array that is expected to come to the 2019 iPhone lineup, which will be unveiled in September.
The entry-level next-generation iPad – which is said to have a 10.2-inch screen in place of the 9.7-inch screen the current model sports – will gain a dual-lens rear camera setup, similar to the current iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
Mac Otakara‘s source claims the new iPads will launch in October. The source also indicated that diagrams of iPad accessories are “floating around,” but no information was available as to whether they would be official Apple products, or third-party accessories.
So far, Apple has restricted the iPad lineup to single-lens rear camera setups, so any multi-sensor array would be a first for the iPad lineup.
The last refresh for the iPad Pro came in October 2018 and the entry-level iPad hasn’t seen a refresh since 2018, so a refresh for both models should be on the way in the near future.
