Apple has been improving its tablet lineup since the launch day to offer a better user interface.
The 6.1-inch iPhone, as hinted at by the leaked dummies, might come with larger bezels, a necessary design feature that would allow Apple to outfit the rumored budget device with an LCD panel. That does not mean Apple iPad is not worth your time. The new Smart Connector, as depicted in the CAD model, looks like a lozenge-shaped indentation on the lower back of the iPad, near the Lightning port. This gives us a hint of how the devices will look in real life. With the addition of the new TrueDepth camera system, Apple might include horizontal Face ID for the iPad Pro, making it easier to unlock the device when it is being used sideways with a keyboard. The next-gen iPad Pro models are expected to run the powerful octa-core A11X Bionic CPU and embedded M11 coprocessor.
In order to launch re-designed 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablets, Apple may have to axe the home button. We will let you know when more info becomes available so make sure to check back TNM.
Tech experts say that the new iPad Pro models will make their debut next year.
In terms of a release date for these models, assuming Apple's production plans stay on course, we can expect to see them either alongside its new iPhone models in September or at a separate media event in the October or early-November timeframe.
The current iPad Pro models run Apple's A10X Fusion chip and come in three storage options- 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. That isn't really a big surprise though, as Apple's latest iPhone line-up does not feature a headphone jack.
The most recent report from Japan's Macotakara suggests that the new iPad Pros will sport bezel-less displays, creating an even sleeker aesthetic than that of its predecessors. Apple will remove the traditional Touch ID on its iPad lineup. Apple will introduce the next generation A-Series SoC - A12 Processor - which will power the two flagship iPhones - 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch iPhone - launching this year. There is not much to tell about the under-the-hood specifications.
