Seasoned Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman had reported in June that the iPad Pro’s back may get a material makeover which would include a switch from aluminum enclosure to glass back. Such a design would not just bring Apple’s premium slate closer to its iPhones – which have transitioned to glass rears in recent years – but also enable wireless charging.
Per today’s report, although Apple is still trying to bring MagSafe to its new iPad Pros, the back will likely not be made entirely of glass. That’s because a glass back could make the tablet fragile and more prone to damage.
The report also claims that the prototype supports faster charging over MagSafe when compared to the iPhone. The iPhone 13 MagSafe charger offers up to 15W of peak power delivery, in case you are wondering. This goes nicely with the rumor that the new models will pack bigger batteries than the current versions.
