According to sources, Apple’s M2 iPads will be available in a “matter of days.”. Sources also allege that Apple is seeking to push the iPad into the home market by including a speaker in a docking adapter.
Apple’s 11-inch and 12.9-inch M2 iPads are rumored to be code-named J617 and J620, respectively, and will be powered by the same M2 processor as the next MacBook Air. They will feature the same flat-edge design as the iPad Pro from last year. According to sources, Apple will not have an event to introduce the M2-powered iPads.
According to rumors, Apple is also developing an entry-level tablet with a USB-C connector and a design similar to the iPad Pro. Unlike the Pro models, the entry-level iPad is believed to have the same A14 Bionic CPU as the iPhone 12 and iPad Air 4. This could mean that the M-series CPUs will only be found in the most expensive iPad devices.
Google has announced that the Pixel Tablet will contain a docking connector that will allow consumers to use it as a smart display and home management device. Apple is reported to be working on a similar docking accessory. Apple already has the Apple TV and the HomePod speaker as home technology devices, but it lacks a device like the Amazon Echo Show or Google’s impending new product.
According to sources, the company is working on a larger HomePod than the HomePod mini, as well as a combined Apple TV and smart-speaker device with FaceTime and other functions. However, until such new gadgets are available, Apple’s vanguard in the smart home technology market may remain the iPad.
About Docking Station
A docking station, also known as a port replicator (hub) or dock, is a streamlined method for connecting a mobile device, such as a laptop, to conventional peripherals. Docks are unstandardized and are typically designed for a single type of device since a large range of dockable gadgets, from mobile phones to wireless mouse, have different connectors, power signals, and purposes.
Some laptop computers can be converted into desktop PCs using a docking station without impairing the machine’s mobile computing capabilities. Portable computers can dock and undock while hot, cold, or in standby mode, depending on the capabilities of the system.
A cold dock or undock turns down the computer completely before docking or undocking. When docked or undocked in a hot dock or undock, the computer continues to operate. Standby docking or undocking, an intermediate solution used in some designs, allows the computer to be docked or undocked while turned on, but it must first be put into sleep mode.
