Apple is reportedly planning to launch three new iPad Pro units some time in the spring of 2017, according to Mac Otakara.
The meat of this rumor suggests that Apple will launch a new 10.1-inch iPad Pro, a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro and, for the first time ever, a smaller 7.9-inch mini version of the iPad Pro.
If it happens, it will be the first time Apple has added “Pro” features to the iPad Mini, including a smart connector dock, presumably for a mini keyboard, four speakers and support for the Apple Pencil. MacOtakara suggests Apple will also add quad microphones, boosting performance from the current dual-microphone setup. TrueTone displays and 12MP cameras are expected for all models.
Funny enough, MacoTakara suggests the new iPads will include headphone jacks. Weird.
