Apple has just updated the standard iPad 2022, together with the new iPad Pro line. Starting at $449, the iPad 10th-generation 2022 is a big leap in price, a whopping $120 more than the iPad 2021, but can you expect to get the premium features accordingly? Does the tablet keep the good old home button and 3.5mm headphone jack?
Apple iPad 2022 doesn’t have a physical home button
Yes, you lose home button, but you can instead take advantage of the side-mounted Touch ID button.
Looking on the bright side, you will be glad to see a bigger display and smaller bezels. The size grows from 10.2 inches to 10.9 inches, a change that’s enough for you to use the tablet as a laptop. The display now also extends nearly to the edges, so you don’t have to deal with huge bezels. The screen is a 1640 x 2360 Liquid Retina display with 264 pixels per inch, and a max brightness of 500 nits.
Apple eliminated 3.5mm headphone jack as well
The rumor comes true that the Apple iPad 2022 would come without a headphone jack. After its debut, only the 9th-generation entry-level iPad is the remaining iPad that has the 3.5mm connector. It’s not hard to forecast this as Apple is gradually removing the connector in an order from the iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad mini.
If you still want to use wired headphones, Apple sells a $9 USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, or you can also turn to other reliable brands.
Stay tuned for the new iPad 2022 release date to learn more and decide if this mid-level tablet lives up to the price tag.
