You might have heard that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is set to roll out its next-generation iPad model during the course of 2017 but today we would specifically focus on the company’s “Pro” 2-in-1 offering. It’s no secret that the current iPad Pro is one of the most powerful hybrid devices but recent rumors have predicted big changes in its succeeding model, dubbed as the iPad Pro 2.
Although the Cupertino-based tech giant deserves praise for getting most aspects right for its original 12.9-inch iPad Pro, recent speculation has hinted for a different approach for its next iteration. According to the ever-knowledgeable analyst Ming-chi Kuo, Apple could be lining up a narrow bezel design for its next-gen iPad Pro model in order to make the device more attractive for users.
Also, a recent report from WCCF Tech has suggested that Apple is looking to release more low-priced options for its next-generation iPad Pro, including an entry-level version featuring a 9.7-inch display. Mr. Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the tech giant will also release a mid-range variant of its iPad Pro, offering a 10.5-inch display screen.
So far Apple has remained tight-lipped regarding its upcoming smart projects but Mac Rumors strongly believes that the company will resurrect the struggling tablet industry with the launch of its next-generation iPad Pro. Moreover, majority of tech enthusiasts believe that the Cupertino-based company could be all set to incorporate some of the best specifications and features ever seen on an iPad.
There has been ongoing speculation that Apple is ready to end its iPad Air and iPad Mini lineup and shift its focus toward its “Pro” offering of tablet devices. Also, there are strong rumors that the company could be set to incorporate an edge-to-edge display in its next-gen iPad Pro. If this is true, then there is every possibility that the device could feature a touch-sensitive home button incorporated within such a display. Interestingly, Apple is tipped to incorporate a similar design in its next flagship smartphone model, dubbed as the iPhone 8.
Furthermore, the next-generation iPad Pro is tipped to be powered by a faster and more power-efficient processor which would be backed by an updated operating system. Hence, it is easy to see why the tech world is eagerly awaiting the official announcement of the next-generation iPad Pro.
