Apple is expected to release an iPhone with a triple-camera array on the back this year. However, apart from the new iPhone, there’s been another widely-spread rumor lately, suggesting that the company’s next iPads might also get multiple rear camera systems.
According to Mac Otakara from AppleInsider, the next iPad Pro could come with a triple-camera array, while the regular 10.2 inch iPad might have a dual-camera system.
According to some accessory diagrams from Apple suppliers cited by Mac Otakara, the new iPad Pro is getting a bigger camera array later this year, while the upcoming iPhone 11 is getting a similar system.
The diagrams also point that the 6th generation iPad might get the same dual-camera setup that the iPhone 11 LCD model will have. According to the website, the models could launch in October, this year.
Despite the fact that Apple has already presented a dual-camera system in several recent iPhones, the company hasn’t carried them over to its tablets. For instance, the latest iPad Pro has a single camera with 12-megapixel sensor, and the latest iPad Air, iPad Mini, and iPad have 8 megapixel sensors.
In any case, the experts claim that the multiple-camera system could be part of Apple’s AR ambitions, and earlier this year, Bloomberg reported that the triple-camera array in the upcoming iPhones would be used for augmented reality apps, and the iPad Pro could be the next to get the same system.
