Appleâ€™s creating a high-end tablet with as much style as horsepower.Â In new renders, we see the iPad Pro (2018) from different angles and in various colors. There isnâ€™t much shown that was left undiscovered, but the entire leak reminds us of what to expect next week. Itâ€™ll be a cutting-edge iPad that doesnâ€™t skimp on anything.
The new iPad Pro will feature an edge-to-edge screen. Apple removed the physical home button on the iPhone last year, and the same is about to happen for the iPad. So everyone should familiarize themselves with gesture-based navigation on iOS.
However, you shouldnâ€™t assume there will be a notch on this tablet. The iPad Proâ€™s bezel might be thinned out but not enough to need a cutout at the top of the display.
As for configurations, the two models are likely set to share many specifications. But their sizes will be different, of course. Appleâ€™s 11-inch model replaces the existing 10.5-inch model, but the larger model will go stay at 12.9 inches for this generation. Both should be extremely portable given the retooled design.
Hereâ€™s what the iPad Pro (2018) should look like:
Expect to see a USB-C port, too. Itâ€™ll replace the Lightning port as Appleâ€™s quietly transitioning away from its own technology and toward a global standard. The transition could be difficult for consumers in the short-term, but USB-C has found its way across all types of devices already.
Youâ€™ll also notice the spiced up color selection. Although unconfirmed so far, the iPad Pro (2018) could be offered in black, silver, yellow, and raspberry. If the latter two choices arenâ€™t made official, donâ€™t be surprised. Apple might stick with a standard three-color mix of black, silver, and gold when this iPad Pro launches.
The global debut for Appleâ€™s latest iPad is just around the corner. Apple will announce the new iPad Pro on Tuesday, October 30.Â TechnoBuffalo has live coverage throughout the day from New York City.
