Apple's new iPad Pro for 2018 may have just been revealed

During the keynote, we are expecting to see a new model of the Apple Watch as well as three new iPhone models. Sadly it doesn't look like there's a 3.5mm headphone port.

Apple has achieved this by removing the Home button from the tablet and switching to Face ID.

First, let me re-iterate that these aren't official photos or renders of the new iPad; even if they're based on an original CAD design for the iPad, the final version of the device could still look different.

The render also shows new antenna lines around the corners of the tablet which could help cellular reception for those models that take a SIM card.


A video which showcases a 360 degree view of Apple's revamped 12.9-inch iPad Pro can be seen below. The new iPad Pro is said to feature a True Tone IPS LCD and a slimmer bezel that hides the Face ID camera.

And, it looks like Apple and Google should be very anxious, as the Mate 20 is reported to be loaded with not just the lightning fast 7nm Kirin 980 CPU, but also potentially a gorgeous 6.9-inch AMOLED display, 8GB of RAM, and the biggest phone battery ever.

The iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) is rumoured to come with the A12 or A12X chipset at the September 12 event.

If the renders are close to the real thing, though, then this might be the nicest-looking iPad Apple has ever produced. The premise so far is that this is the Smart Connector moved there for added functionality when the iPad is docked in portrait mode, but we'll see what Apple has really meant very soon. The smaller variant that isn't likely to have any major differences against the 12.9-inch variant.
