Next year, Apple is expected to release two new variants of the iPhone Pro, with screen sizes of 10.9-inch and 12.9-inch and reports suggest that the company will remove the rounded home key. Below, we’ll tell more about the changes that will be made to the upcoming 2-in-1 hybrid flagship tablet.

Macotakara, a Japanese Apple-centric blog, claims that the upcoming iPads will be thicker than the current iPads, as according to sources from Taiwan, the iPad Pro 2 will measure 7.2mm, being 0.3mm thicker than the current iPad Pro. The difference is very small, but it’s good that Apple has got bored of releasing anorexic devices and it wants to make its tablets more robust and more powerful.

The biggest change in the upcoming iPad Pro is the screen, which will have no bezels. Reports say that the 10.9-inch variant will replace the current Pro 9.7, but it will be 7.5mm thick, just like the original iPad Air. In addition, according to leaks, the home button will be removed from the front panel, and there will be only the FaceTime camera placed at the top.

The 12.9 iPad Pro 2 will also have a bezel-less design on the sides, and the fingerprint scanner will be incorporated into the screen, since there are already rumors according to which Apple will employ under-glass home key in its upcoming iPhone 8 flagship smartphone. Most likely, the two iPad Pro models will be announced this spring, and fans hope that these features will be available on the new convertible tablet:

– 4K video recording;
– Live Photos;
– Display with True Tone and “wide color”;
– 12 MP primary camera;
– 5 MP secondary camera;
– 32GB of storage;
– Pink color option.

In addition to the two new iPad Pro models, Apple will release the iPad Mini 5, which will be rebranded as iPad Pro Mini and its specs will include an A9 chipset, 3GB of RAM, a rear camera of 8MP and a front camera of 1.2MP, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options of internal storage and iOS 10 out of the box.
