Apple’s hybrid tablet iPad Pro has received four stars out of five in multiple technology and mobile devices reviews. This is emblematic of satisfied consumers. In September 2015, the American electronics company has released, by far, the biggest tablet with a 12.9-inch screen the iPad Pro 12.9. This iPad series is already a year old. Surely, there are innovations going on inside Apple’s production and engineering team. Some say that iPad Pro 2 is about to be unveiled.
It has been reported that iPad Pro 2 will be released in March or April 2017. There was a slight delay due to the chipmaker’s insufficient supply.
Speaking of design, it’s speculated that the upcoming tablet will have a slimmer, lighter slate. It will be water resistant, and it will not have a headphone port. The new tablet would most likely have a faster processor (A10X processor) and an upgraded True Tone display technology. Furthermore, iPad Pro 2 is possibly equipped with ultra-thin bezels, no physical home button, and an updated Apple Pencil 2.
It is predicted that iPad Pro 2 will retain the 256GB storage capacity. As for the camera, taking the True Tone technology into account, the device is expected to have a 12-megapixel iSight camera with Live Photos, 4K video recording, and 5-megapixel front FaceTime HD camera with a Retina Flash.
A report from Apple Insider showed leaked photos of the alleged prototype of iPad Pro 2. The images displayed unfamiliar model number, but it’s close to the iPad Pro’s model number. If proven authentic, this leak could mean that production is already in progress for the next iPad Pro series.
Late last year, there were rumors about that Apple is looking at foldable iPhone and flexible AMOLED display. Some believed that the over-the-top design will be extended to the iPad series.
At this time, there is no official confirmation from Apple about the specifications and release of iPad Pro 2, Therefore, readers are advised to take everything with a grain of salt.
