Instead of using the previously announced full glass back (like most of the latest iPhones), the new iPad Pro could be charged through the enlarged glass Apple logo built into the metal back. It would charge faster than the iPhone (expected given the iPad’s extra power) and would carry stronger magnets to keep the charger in place.
The refreshed iPad Pro would include some more universal enhancements, including a larger battery and one iPhone 13-style down camera. There would also be a “brand new chip” 9 to 5 It is assumed that the M2 would also be expected for the new MacBook Air. Earlier rumors suggested that the M2 would have eight cores like the M1, but would run faster and offer more graphics cores.

However, don’t be shocked if there is a new Pro. The M1-based iPad Pro was a chance for Apple to increase its silicon power as well as a functional upgrade – a continuation of the M2 would continue that momentum, and support for MagSafe would help connect the Pro to Apple’s wider ecosystem.
