The 2020 iPad 8 retains the same design as the previous version, but will be upgraded to an A12 Bionic, Tipster says
It seems that cheap yet powerful Apple devices will become quite common in the coming months. Shortly after the $ 399 iPhone SE, Apple may be preparing an affordable 2020 iPad 8, which a tipster says will stick to the same design as its predecessor. But what’s important to customers looking for such a tablet is on the inside, not the outside.
Previous rumor claimed that the 2020 iPad 8 will also come with more base storage than the iPad 7
According to a tweet from Komiya, Apple will jump from the A10 Fusion on the iPad 7 to the A12 Bionic on the 2020 iPad 8. The A10 Fusion was first launched in 2016 when the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were unveiled and while it is a suitable silicon, it is clearly no match for the A12 Bionic, which reminds you, which also runs on the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the iPad mini 5 and iPad Air 3.
The 2020 iPad 8 that sticks to an older design means it may come with the same 10.2-inch LCD screen as the iPad 7, along with a Touch ID home button at the bottom. While the following is only our guess, we believe that Apple isn’t expected to change much from the inside, meaning the iPad 8 may have the same battery capacity as the iPad 7 and 3 GB LPDD4X RAM.

A previous review of the A12 Bionic indicated that the SoC is as fast as a desktop computer, meaning that if the iPad 8 were shipped with it, the tablet could offer similar performance to many powerful Windows 10 laptops. The extra screen real estate can come in very handy while consuming content, surfing the web or performing some office-related tasks, and since the A12 Bionic is no slouch, it will effortlessly handle anything thrown its way.
Also, the 2020 iPad 8 base model reportedly comes with more internal memory than 32 GB, and that should be plentiful even for experienced users. Are you excited to see the powerful and inexpensive iPad 8 release of 2020 later this year? Let us know in the comments.
