In addition to the new iPhones coming this fall, Apple is said to have a pair of new iPad Pro variants coming as well with a slew of changes. Read on as we roundup everything we know so far about these new devices…
Save the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, the iPad has remained largely the same in terms of design over recent years. That all changes this year, however, as Apple is expected to give the iPad Pro an iPhone X-like design overhaul.
First and foremost, reports indicate that the company will reduce bezel sizes on both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro variants. For each of those models, however, this change will mean different things.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will keep the 10.5-inch iPad Pro the same physical size, but extend the screen. This means you’ll get added screen real estate in a form factor that is the same. According to Kuo, the 10.5-inch model will this year become the 11-inch model because of those reduced bezel sizes.
Meanwhile, for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, Kuo expects Apple to simply reduce the bezel sizes, not increase the display size. Thus, the 12.9-inch display will remain the same, but the overall footprint of the device will decrease, making it more portable and easier to manage.
