2020 will undoubtedly be the year of 5G for the iPhone. However, it seems that the Cupertino giant is interested in bringing this technology to its other products, in particular the iPad. According to a report published in the past few hours by Digitimes, Apple is already in talks with a company to supply 5G antennas with mmWave support for the next iPad Pro. Let’s find out the details together.

The house of the bitten apple, Apple, did not introduce an iPad Pro in 2019. This is because the 2018 model was a real revolution in terms of power. We expect great things for 2020. Will this be the year in which we will see the first iPad with 5G connectivity born? Let’s try to understand it.

Apple: a 5G iPad could only arrive in 2021

There is no doubt that the house of the bitten apple is working on a new model of the iPad Pro to be launched on the market. According to what was declared by most analysts, the new device should see the light in the first months of the year, probably in March. As a result, it seems very unlikely that Apple intends to introduce 5G technology on this year’s devices. A recent Digitimes report stated that Apple appears to be in agreement with Taiwan’s Advanced Semiconductor Engineering for the supply of 5G antennas with mmWave support to be mounted on the next iPads.

The report does not specify the iPad model on which the antennas will be mounted. Considering, however, that these are very expensive components, there is little doubt that the device in question will be part of the “Pro” range. Now the only question that remains is: when will we see the first 5G iPad emerge? Look forward to any updates in this regard.
