A new report from Macotakara (via Apple Insider ) says that Apple is likely not going to change its next iPad, noting that it will probably maintain the same cabinet and retain Touch ID and a headphone jack.
The report comes from a provider, who says that the screen size has not been determined, but that it could be increased to a size of 10 inches. The provider also points out that this year's model could be announced along with an update to the iPad Mini, which is also rumored to look a lot like the previous version.
When launched last year, the basic iPad was not a radical change from its predecessor: it had a screen size of 9.7 inches, had touch ID, cameras, an updated processor and added support for the Apple Pencil. This new report suggests that Apple is happy with the base model and, once again, it will not change things drastically, unlike the iPad Pro line, which now has more frontline features such as Face ID. As Dieter Bohn pointed out a year ago, it's an iPad.
