For several months rumors have been emerging related to the launch of a new iPad Pro in the first quarter of 2020, and this time DigiTimes ensures that the device could be launched in March , as has happened in recent years, but that the company faces some problems to increase the units manufactured.
According to the report, although Apple has already started the production of this tablet, the firm has had some problems to accelerate the production line. The manufacturing line has been affected by factors such as the outbreak of coronavirus in China, where most of the factories are located.
In 2018, the apple company held a wind in the first quarter of the year, and it took place in March, so it is possible that the date can be repeated this year. It is expected that the new iPad Pro will have a very similar design to last year’s , but will have three lenses in the rear camera.
It is important to note that although rumors speak of triple camera, we would be talking about a double camera to improve depth detection in the image, focused on bringing the Augmented Reality to the iPad as an educational and professional tool, so the third camera would be a 3D depth sensor.
According to rumors released by Bloomberg in late 2019, the new iPad Pro may have a triple camera in the back, and Apple may add a “small hole for the 3D system” . This sensor system will be essential for the development of the Augmented Reality ecosystem in Apple and will also be incorporated in the iPhone of 2020.
Also, as a detail related to the topic, Bloomberg gave clues about the Apple team that is working in the field of Augmented Reality. According to the media, there is a team of about 1,000 people working on the initiative. Leading them all is Mike Rockwell, and the team is made up of engineers from the hardware department, the software department, video games, and more. There are even former NASA engineers and former top game developers.

If these rumors are true, of course Apple’s commitment to augmented reality will be important, and we can only wait to see how it will integrate with the iPad Pro and the iPhone that will come to market this 2020.
