2020 iPad 8 to Retain Same Design as Previous Version but Will Be Upgraded to an A12 Bionic, Says Tipster
It looks as if low-cost, yet powerful Apple devices will become quite common in the coming months. Shortly after the $399 iPhone SE, Apple might be preparing an affordable 2020 iPad 8, which according to a tipster, will stick to the same design as its predecessor. However, what will matter to customers looking for such a tablet is on the inside, not the outside.
According to a tweet from Komiya, Apple will make a jump from the A10 Fusion on the iPad 7 to the A12 Bionic on the 2020 iPad 8. The A10 Fusion first launched back in 2016 when the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus got unveiled and while it’s a capable silicon, it’s obviously no match for the A12 Bionic, which to remind you, is also running in the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the iPad mini 5 and iPad Air 3.
