A new report has suggested that the upcoming 9th generation of Apple iPad for 2021, will feature a design that is similar to the 2019 iPad Air 3, while the 2021 iPad Pro will apparently not see any major changes in design.
According to a MacOtakara report (Via AppleInsider), a source from the Chinese supply chain has claimed that the low cost iPad will still retain a 10.2 inch display, but will arrive in a thinner and lighter form factor, of 6.3mm and 460 grams. At the moment, the 8th gen iPad that is currently available features a thickness of 7.5mm and weighs about 490 grams. So, this is a noticeable difference between the two generations.

Despite becoming slimmer and lighter, the upcoming 9th generation of Apple iPad will also carry features that are similar to the current generation. Furthermore, the report claims that it will still feature a Lightning port along with a Touch ID on the physical home button. The source also added that the 9th generation iPad will continue to feature a full lamination display, with an anti reflective coating, P3 wide color gamut support, and True Tone as well.
Although the base model is seeing certain changes in its design, apparently the high end iPad Pro might not see any major changes. The source from the Chinese supply chain stated that the 11 inch iPad Pro and its larger 12.9 inch iPad Pro variant might not see any drastic change in design or features. However, we can expect to see a refresh in terms of a newer and more powerful Apple A series processor.
