Apple iPad Pro 2020 might have the same back camera setup as the iPhone 11 Pro

It’s been a while since Apple released a Pro variant to its tablet line up. That’s why fans were thrilled when supposed renders of the upcoming iPad Pro 2020 were leaked.

The leaks came from Steve H.McFly, also known as @OnLeaks, and iGeeksBlog who shared numerous renders on the supposed 2020 iPad Pro 12.9-inch and the 2020 iPad Pro 11-inch. McFly is known for his high-accuracy advanced information on popular gadgets.

Based on the renders’ front views, it appears that the upcoming iPad Pro models will have roughly the same sizes as their predecessors, according to PhoneArena. In addition, they also share the same look when viewed from the front so there might be no massive redesign happening.

However, the renders’ back views show that there is a noticeable difference between the older and the upcoming models. While the 2018 iPad Pro only has a single rear camera, the leaked renders show that the 2020 iPad Pro version will both feature a three-camera assembly.

The images even seem to suggest that the 2020 iPad Pro might share the same camera specs as the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The phone’s triple rear camera is composed of a regular camera, an ultra-wide camera and a telephoto sensor with a 2X optical zoom capability. These might be the rear cameras of the upcoming tablets as well should Apple follow the same three-camera specs as that found in the iPhone models.

However, MacRumors suggested another possible lens combination for the 2020 iPad Pro triple rear camera. According to the publication, one of the cameras could feature a time-of-flight (ToF) capability.

A ToF camera is able to gauge distances between objects by using a laser for the measurement. This makes this kind of camera perfect for 3D effect. With its ability to perceive depth, it can even be used in augmented reality applications.

At the moment, it is not yet sure if the new tablets will have glass or aluminum backing. To be on the safe side, OnLeaks actually made renderings that show both materials as backings.

The 2020 iPads will likely feature the A13X chip. The gadgets are expected to have at least 4 GB of RAM as well. According to iGeeks, the two tablets could be released by March 2020.
