In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to consider waiting for the rumored 2022 iPad Pro and the best reasons to buy something else.
Wait for Wireless Charging
Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Debby Wu claim the new iPad Pros will feature wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Currently, Apple's iPads charge via USB-C or Lightning. If Apple brings wireless charging to the iPad line, it would bring it closer to the iPhone. Newer iPhone models can all be charged wirelessly.
The other major change could be reverse wireless charging. This would allow iPad Pro owners to use their device to charge other devices like iPhones and AirPods by laying them on the back of the iPad.
This is a feature that was rumored for Apple's iPhone 11 series. The feature was reportedly explored before it was killed off.
In the December version of his Power On newsletter, Gurman once again claimed the 2022 iPad Pros will have wireless charging capabilities.
If either of these features sounds interesting to you, you might want to hang back and wait for the 2022 iPad Pro models.
