Will new iPad Pro models be revealed soon?
An Apple hardware event is expected to take place sometime this month to launch 2018 iPad Pro models, new MacBooks, and probably more. And new leaks out this week may be bringing some iPad spoilers before the event is even announced.
Tech aficionados are speculating that an Apple event is on its way sometime over the next couple weeks based on what they have spotted within iOS 12.1 beta. The operating system’s code allegedly exposes a bit of what is to come; 9to5Mac’s sources have located what appear to be the model codes for the 2018 iPad Pros, suggesting that there will be two sizes of both a Wi-Fi model and LTE model.
The sources also found information outlining what may come in regards to screen displays: as expected, the iPads appear to be set to follow the edge-to-edge trend. They will have neither a home button, much like the iPhone XS, nor a notch in sight for the first time, and the bezels will be thinner than those on any previous model. Also like the newest iPhones, there will be a Face ID function that works in portrait and landscape orientations and is set up similarly to that of the iPhone X.
Each model is set to have a USB-C port and be able to output 4K HDR video which can be altered with a new panel in the settings. Users will be able to control the resolution, HDR, and brightness to get the video presentation just right.
Naturally, users expect a new smart Keyboard to accompany the new iPads, but the only information available about those or any other accessories is that they will attach via a new Magnetic Connector.
At this rate, if the expected October event does take place, Apple’s portfolio will be completely overhauled just in time for the winter holidays. JB
