It will also be a budget low-end variant. As for the high-end variants, it’s presumed that those will be the 10.5 inch variant and the 12.9 inch one. Both devices are rumored to be powered by the latest processor form Apple, the A10X.

There are very few rumors about the price for the upcoming iPad Pro 2, but it is believed that one of the models, more likely one of the higher end variants to cost about $799.

Lastly, other rumors state that the iPad Pro 2 will be compatible to the Apple Pencil, thus rendering the iPad Mini obsolete. The presumed date of release for the devices is September 2016, so we should find out what happens to the iPad Mini lineup soon enough.
