  • Next-gen iPad models will get a major upgrade in the camera department.
  • The iPad Pro will get the supposed triple camera setup of the iPhone XI.
  • The base model of the next generation iPad will feature a dual camera setup.

It’s only a matter of a few weeks before we see the next generation iPhone. If you go through all the leaks and rumors, we might expect a major camera performance upgrade for these iPhone models. However, if other rumors are to be believed, Apple could give the iPad line the same multi-camera setup as the iPhone models. And the odds are high considering it comes from Macotakara, which itself has a reputation for posting credible Apple leaks.

Next-gen iPad models will get a major upgrade in the camera department, according to the blog. The iPad Pro, the flagship of the iPad line, will get the supposed triple camera setup of the iPhone XI. There is no reason why Apple would put a triple camera setup on its iPad. The only possible explanation we can think of is that Apple has big plans with the AR side of apps and games. In order to support the advanced features of RA, Apple could give the iPad three cameras in an attempt to help it with the complex features of RA.

The current generation iPad Pro already has a 12-megapixel camera that does a pretty good job with photography and the basics of augmented reality supported by the iPad platform at the moment. And most iPad users generally rely on their smartphone’s camera for photography. Therefore, it is strange to see a complex camera system on a large tablet.

Still, according to rumor, Apple is bringing several cameras to the iPad Pro. It’s said that even the base model of the next-gen iPad will feature a dual-camera setup. The base iPad is expected to feature a 10.2-inch screen this year, and Apple may offer this iPad a dual-camera system. Details remain unknown on the composition of the camera.

Apple is very likely to give the 10.2-inch iPad the same cameras as the iPhone XIR, which is also expected to gain a dual-camera system this year. The 2018 iPhone XR was the only flagship iPhone to retain a single rear camera.

If these iPad models also gain the multi-camera setup, it’s likely Apple will go for the square module design that should be seen on iPhone models this year. In addition to cameras, the new iPads should be equipped with the next generation chipsets. The 10.2-inch iPad could keep the A12 chipset that was used in this year’s iPad Air and iPad Mini.
