According to a source known as ShrimpApplePro, the next-generation iPad Air will feature a horizontal front-facing camera.

If this information is correct, the front camera of the next iPad Air will be located in a frame to the right of the screen when the device is held vertically. As a result, the front camera will be positioned at the top of the iPad when the device is in landscape orientation, making it centered in relation to the user's eyes during video calls. This change will be especially useful for those who use an iPad Air with the Magic Keyboard.

The current iPad Air places the front camera in the top bezel above the screen, resulting in it being off-center. in landscape orientation.

The insider doesn't expect the next iPad Air to have any other significant design changes. They also questioned the larger 12.9-inch iPad Air, but that model has been rumored across multiple sources, so it would be surprising if it wasn't released.

Horizontal front-facing camera rumors are already here went. for both the next iPad Pro and iPad Air, so a design change is becoming increasingly likely. Apple already changed the front camera placement on the entry-level iPad 10 a few years ago, so it would make sense to extend this change across the entire iPad line.

“When setting up ‌Face ID‌, the iPad must be in landscape orientation and the camera must “at the top of the screen,” reads the hidden code in iPadOS 17.4.

Apple is expected to unveil the new iPads in late March or April.

ShrimpApplePro has had a mixed track record over the past few years Apple rumor story: The source accurately revealed details about devices like the iPhone 15 Pro and Apple Watch Series 9, but he was incorrect about the Apple Watch Ultra 2 being available in Space Black and the iPad mini being updated in 2023
