We all expect Apple to announce new iPhones with triple cameras in September, but word on the street is that the company can also update iPad Pros with the same meaty camera system.
According to Japanese Apple rumor blog Macotakara (via 9to5Mac), new 11- and 12-inch iPad Pros can come with three cameras instead of one.
Like the next iPhones, the triple lens camera was supposedly positioned in a square camera bump on the back and consisted of a main lens, 2x telephoto lens and an ultra-wide-angle lens.

If Macotakara's source is correct, it will mark the first time Apple upgraded the rear view camera of the iPad beyond a single lens setup.

Apple continues to make advances in AR and new, more powerful cameras will allow its devices to better combine virtual objects with the real world.
The new iPad Pros and 10.2-inch iPad are rumored to be unveiled in October. The current iPad pros were completely redesigned in late 2018 with edge-to-edge Liquid Retina displays, Face ID and a second-generation Apple Pencil as a magnetic clip to the side.
With no new designs expected for 2019's iPhones and iPads – they should look very similar to the iPhone XS, XS Max, XR and iPad Pros – it certainly looks like Apple is going to give its cameras great time. We hope the cameras can compete with Google's impressive Night Sight.
