A Future iPad Could Feature A Landscape Apple Logo For The First Time

Apple recently announced the M4 iPad Pro and M2 iPad Air and both of the new tablets sport the same vertical Apple logo around the back.

It’s the way the Apple logo has always been, and it’s the same as the iPhone. But a new report suggests that things could change in the future.

The idea behind the vertical iPad logo is that it appears the right way up when the tablet is in portrait. But with iPads often used in landscape mode and attached to a keyboard, there are some that believe the iPad should have a horizontal Apple logo to match. Now, a new report suggests that Apple might even agree.

In an interview with three senior Apple employees, French website, Numerama reported that one suggested a change in logo orientation is on the way.

“I think it could change,” said Apple product designer Molly Anderson via machine translation. “We are thinking about it. The iPad has long been a product that is used in portrait mode, but we are using it more and more in landscape mode.”

There’s no confirmation that this is actually going to happen of course, but this is at least a good indication that Apple has considered the change in-house.

Ultimately, the change isn’t that big of a switch and it won’t make any difference to the way people use their tablets. But it’s a change that would be welcomed by many and it’s interesting to see Apple may be open to making the change happen.
