A patent that emerged last month suggests that the exchangeable tips will bring new functionality including air-gestures and the stylus may also support a tip module with paint, ink, or graphite.
Apple is expected to release the new iPad Pro this month. The 2021 slate will likely be powered by a new 5nm chip, which will apparently be known as the A14X Bionic. A recent report says that it will be as powerful as the Arm-based M1 chip that fuels the new crop of Macs. Also on the cards is a new mini-LED display technology and better cameras.
