Apple is reported to launch not one or two but three new iPad Pro models in spring 2017. The trio of iPad Pros will come in 7.9-inch, 10.1-inch, and 12.9-inch models.
The trio of iPad Pros is expected to come with quad microphones and will not ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack that the company controversially dropped from the latest iPhones –iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, according to Japanese tech site Mac Otakara.
The site also reports that the 7.9-inch model will appear as a replacement for iPad Mini 4. The tablet is expected to come with a smart connecter to hook up Apple’s smart keyboard cover, four speakers, True Tone display, and 12MP rear-facing camera with True Tone flash.
One of the upgrades will be to the 12.9-inch model. It is expected to come with a True Tone display, True Tone flash and 12 MP rear-facing camera.
As for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro model, there is still no report of what amendments we can expect. Mac Otakara proves to be an accurate source on multiple occasions in past. It was the first to correctly give a say about Apple’s plans to ditch 3.5mm headphone jack from iPhone 7 models. The site even revealed about the addition of new black and jet black colors for iPhone 7.
Mac Otakara was also true with the information of iPhone 7 naming scheme, larger earpiece cutout, and pressure-sensitive Home button.
On the other side, the site proved to be wrong with timings on its reports claiming that the new MacBook Air models with USB-C Ports will be launched by the end of June.
Of late, the source revealed about the MacBook Air refresh saying that it will arrive as early as October. Regardless of that, we’ll have to wait until 2017 to get our hands on the trio of iPad Pros.
One upgrade that is not expected anytime soon even in 2017 is the inclusion of an AMOLED display, but not to worry as a previous report suggests that the iPad Pro will come with a new display upgrade in 2018. So it is widely expected that the year 2017 and 2018 will bring a lot of surprises related to iPad Pro.
For now, take the info with a pinch of salt as Apple has not marked any stamp concerning the launch of the trio of iPad Pros. Conversely, the iPhone maker usually doesn’t give a word on product rumors.
