Breaking : 5G iPad Pro - in May by Apple

Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is reportedly planning to launch its first-ever 5G iPad this year, apart from the rumoured 5G-capable iPhone 12 in September.

 

For this, a Taiwanese component company Advanced Semiconductor Engineering has reportedly broken into the supply chain for Apple's mmWave 5G iPhones and 5G iPads with its substrate-based FC-AiP technology.

 

Apple is expected to update the iPad Pro in early 2020, but a 5G model could debut later in the year.

 

Apple-watching analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently revealed that the iPhone maker is expected to release new iPad Pro models with rear 3D sensing in the first half of 2020.

 

Kuo also reiterated that Apple plans to release its low-cost iPhone SE 2 in the first half of 2020 too.

The iPhone SE 2 will use a 10-layer Substrate-like PCB for its motherboard, the same technology used by the iPhone 11 version.

 

Kuo expects the device to look similar to the iPhone 8 and believes it will be a popular upgrade option for existing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s owners.
