In brief: Apple’s next standard iPad reportedly won’t carry a drastic redesign, which for those that don’t like change, is great news. Rumored to stick around in 2019 is the legacy 3.5mm audio jack and Apple’s original biometric authentication system, Touch ID.

A new wave of Apple iPads is expected from Cupertino later this month including a new standard iPad and an iPad mini. Rumors touched on the latter last month and now, we’re hearing more about the former.

Japanese publication Macotakara (via 9to5Mac) recently reported that Apple’s 7th generation iPad will retain two familiar features – the 3.5mm headphone jack and Touch ID. These “legacy” features have gone away on the higher-end iPad Pro in favor of wireless audio and Face ID, respectively, to help reduce the overall thickness of the device and its bezels.
