New 10.5-inch iPad Pro rumoured for April launch

Based on the supply chain data, while the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is expected to be announced next week.

Apple's slowly been transitioning its iPad line to the Pro moniker, starting with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro released in November of 2015.

It's also possible that Apple will quietly send out a press release and update its online stores rather than gathering up the press, as it has sometimes done with lower-profile product updates in the past. Online speculations hint at display sizes such as 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch for the iPad Pro 2. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 has many similarities with its predecessor, the biggest innovation is the A10X processor. Some reports suggest that the company could push the iPad date to April.

It is not yet clear, how much the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 will cost, but it is hoped that it will have a price tag of $599. However, the demands on a tablet like the iPad Pro, and now the iPad Pro 2 have increased. The blog, citing local analysts' predictions, stated that Apple could be launching the new tablet next week.

All three of the new iPad Pro models are expected to be equipped with quad microphones.

Recently surfaced reports claim that the upcoming iPad Mini 5 will be unveiled during Apple's April 4 event, which is said to transpire at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park.

The upcoming iPad model is also believed to be sporting an edge-to-edge display as well as a virtual Home Button, which could also be seen on the upcoming iPhone 8 model itself. Nevertheless, a new report suggests that Apple may hold a non-glitzy media conference next week and surprise fans with a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2017 model.

Amazingly, this implementation has a historical data where Apple reserves the X series chips for its iPads. On Apple News, please favorite the 1redDrop channel to get us in your news feed. The latest iPad is expected to be a 12.9-inch tablet. It would be water resistant and would also have TrueTone Screen like iPad Pro.

The rumor mill is spinning out of control lately regarding the next-gen lineup of Apple's iPad Pros.

It should also be pointed out that this makes sense because this way, Apple will be making sure the Smart Keyboard will be compatible with it too, as IHS Markit's director of tablets and PCs research Rhoda Alxander points out in a Forbes interview.
