Apple is rumoured to be launching new iPads alongside its iPhone XI/11 family of devices and positioning them to be photography powerhouses.
While tablets aren’t traditionally considered as photography devices, the firm intends to change that going forward. As per Japanse tech blog Macotakara, Apple is equipping this year’s iPad Pros (iPads Pro?) with a triple camera layout to match the new premium iPhones. The blog cites a Chinese supplier which only says that Apple will be releasing the tablet with a triple-lens. While singular cameras on tablets are the norm, an escalation doesn’t seem unlikely.
It’s worth noting that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 also features a multi-camera set-up, featuring one of the first dual-cameras in a mainstream flagship tablet.
Apple’s will also have its own dual-camera equipped flagship. That one, however, will be going to its everyday iPad 10.2 inch, a rumoured successor to its iPad 9.7 inch. Once it adorns the current design language of Apple’s newest tablets, it’ll carry on a larger sized screen in the same size chassis.
Apple is expected to be launching these devices in Autumn, so we’ll see how these rumours pan out.
