Only a year after the launch of iPad 9, Apple introduced major upgrades to its iPad lineup. The redesigned 2022 iPad 10 features an A14 Bionic chip, a 10.9-inch larger display, Wi-Fi 6, 5G network support (cellular models), vibrant color options, and much more.
Although the 12MP front-facing camera on the new model is the same as its predecessor, it is on the landscape edge of the new iPad 10 for the first time ever on any iPad.
iPad 10’s new front-facing camera on the landscape edge likely to enhance the video calling experience
Now, users will be looking straight into the camera on the iPad 10 for improved video calling with Center Stage experiences.
For the first time on any iPad, the front-facing camera is now located along the landscape edge. Whether users are on a FaceTime call or recording a video for social media, they will always be looking right toward the camera.
The landscape Ultra Wide front camera with a 12MP sensor and 122-degree field of view supports Center Stage, which automatically pans and zooms to keep users in view as they move around. The upgraded 12MP Wide back camera on iPad delivers high-resolution photos and detailed 4K video with support for 240-fps slo-mo.
With the exception of the new iPad (2022), the front-facing camera is located on the Portrait edge across the current iPad lineup. Since most users tend to place their iPads in landscape position, either handheld or on an accessory, during video calls that orientation places the front-facing camera on the left or right of the device and creates an uncomfortable angle for video calls or video recording.
