The new 10th generation iPad is the first iPad model to feature a horizontal orientation of the front camera.
Thanks to this offset, the new iPad’s front camera is now located in the middle of the device’s right frame. This means that when holding the lens horizontally, the lens is directly in the middle of the user’s face. From an Apple press release:
For the first time on any iPad, the front camera is now located along the horizontal edge. Whether users make a FaceTime call or record a video for social media, they will always be looking directly at the camera. The horizontal ultra-wide-angle front camera with a 12MP sensor and 122° field of view supports the Center Stage feature, which pans and zooms automatically to keep users in view as they move
This allows you to offer a less problematic recovery in terms of grip and position when the iPad is placed on the table, and is applied in the case of perhaps the new Magic Keyboard Folio.
This feature is unique to the 10th generation iPad. No other iPad at the moment has the camera on the taller side. For example, the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models continue to have the front camera on the short side
In addition to this position, the front camera of the 10th generation iPad is identical to the 9th generation iPad, which is still officially on sale from Apple, except for support for Smart HDR 3.
