Apple’s current iPad product line includes four series, the iPad, the iPad Air, the iPad mini and the iPad Pro. Among them, the iPad upgraded to a 10.2-inch screen last year, the iPad Air is a 10.5-inch screen, the iPad mini is 7.9″ and the iPad Pro is 11-inch and 12.9-inch.

According tomedia reports, there are reliable sources that the iPad 2020 or the eighth generation of the iPad will be replaced with the A12 processor. That’s a big change, because when the seventh-generation iPad was introduced last year, it was still an A10 processor, even though the screen was bigger.

However, if the price of upgrading to the A12 processor continues to be at $329 ($2,499), the 7.9-inch,02-inch, A12-processor iPad mini will be awkward unless it chooses to replace it at the same time.

It’s also worth noting that Apple will come up with a 10.8-inch iPad and an 8.5-9-inch iPad mini by the end of this year, according to analyst Guo Minghui in his latest investment report. Despite a 5nm A14 in the second half of the year, the A12 available on the iPhone XS/XS Max will still be available, and from our fast tech ladder, the A12’s comprehensive energy is still ahead of the Kirin 990 5G and SnapDragon855.
