IPad Pro 2020 Bring New Feature To Rival Surface Pro 7
Strong rumors are suggesting that the new iteration of the iPad Pro will have an all-new feature – a trackpad.
The information, says that Apple is about to unleash a replacement smart keyboard when the new iPad appears this year.
The trackpad-enabled keyboard would see the iPad move closer to a more traditional laptop – but instead of cannibalizing the sales of the forthcoming MacBook 2020, such an attempt would likely see the iPad take sales from Microsoft’s Surface Pro range of tablets.
What’s also interesting is that this is able to mean an enormous change to Apple’s iPadOS, the forked version of iOS 13 that powers the iPhone range.
While it’s technically possible to call up a cursor on an iPad using accessibility features, it isn’t for mainstream use in the least.
The report also states that Apple is gearing up for the launch of the new iPad Pro 2020 and therefore the improved keyboard, having brought the iPhone-making factory Foxconn on board to handle the creation.
Given the very fact, Foxconn has had to shutter some production lines in its factories thanks to the coronavirus outbreak, this is able to mean the new iPad Pro release date is probably going set for later within the year – not within the next month or two, as has been previously rumored.
