As per the early reports of Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPhone 11 was said to be coming with a triple-lens camera array. Ming-Chi Kuo is a leading analyst at TF International Securities and also a credible source of information regarding Apple products. Now there’s another report coming from Japan. According to the reports, the 2019 iPad Pro will come with an iPhone 11 styled triple-lens camera. Apple has not been in the driver’s seat for a long time now in terms of producing the best quality camera phones. Recent launches by Huawei and Samsung are a clear reason for that, but the American tech-MNC is working hard to reclaim its throne.
The current version of iPad Pro features a single 12 MP camera. Sudden upgrade to a triple-lens array will automatically intensify its competitiveness in the market. Also, the current version of iPad Pro doesn’t carry many unique features with its rear camera like Portrait mode and depth sensing. Perhaps, the addition of new camera setup will enable the new iPad Pro to support those features and also improve in areas like AR and 3D.
A Japanese site, Mac Otakara, which is regular with Apple product news, confirmed the report of Apple planning to launch a new iPad Pro and a 10.2 entry-level iPad in October this year. The latter will supposedly be having a dual-sensors similar to iPhone XS. However, AppleInsider hasn’t confirmed the veracity of Mac Otakara. The rumours are making rounds as Mac Otakara has a decent record in revealing and foretelling Apple’s launches and hardware upgrades.
Apple had acquired the dual-lens technology in 2016 and launched the iPhone 7 Plus integrated with it. Nonetheless, they haven’t yet upgraded their tablet line with dual-lens shooters, and that is why equipping new iPads with multi-sensor rear cameras will be an entirely unanticipated move by Apple. Among Apple’s latest launches are a revamped iPad mini and a 10.5-inch iPad Pro which made it to the markets in March 2018. The iPad Pro underwent an external and software redesign in October 2018 and came with a full face display and Face ID. However, there have been no new upgrades since then.
If the speculations are correct, then for the first time, the new iPad Pro and Apple iPad will be sporting the same camera technology as their contemporary iPhone siblings. A top-end iPhone is also expected in September this year. They will also benefit from a triple-sensor camera with a super wide-angle lens.
