iPad Pro 2018: Rumoured Specifications And Features

Every iPad has practically similar design aesthetics, the design ergonomics haven’t changed for around 4-5 years. This time around we can expect Apple to completely revamp the iPad Pro design. Apple may introduce a nearly bezel-less display on both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Introducing a bezel-less display on an iPad will help Apple to embed a larger display in a much smaller body. Consequently, the new iPad Pro will have a compact form factor. Apple may even ditch Touch ID from the new iPad Pro as there is no physical home button in the renders. Hence, we can expect iPad Pro to inherit Face ID from the iPhone X. 

These new iPad’s may feature a True Tone IPS LCD panel and that coupled with the bezel-less display will take the media consumption experience to a new horizon. Similar to the predecessors the new iPad Pro will come with four speaker grills at each corner. Lastly, there will be a small camera bump on the rear of the new iPad.

As far as performance is concerned, the new iPad Pro’s might be powered by the A12X  octa-core processor. These new SoC will be manufactured using TSMC’s 7nm FinFET technology. Apart from the tremendous improvement in performance, the new A12X will also be highly power efficient as compared to the previous generation.

The new iPad Pro’s will come with 4GB RAM, that will be standard across the board. While Apple will reserve 512GB storage for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

There are many nifty features on iOS 12 that are only available for iPad’s. Well, with Apple’s seamless optimization between hardware and software we can expect the new iPad Pro to be a performance beast. In fact, we can now use the iPad as a full-fledged laptop for a majority of office or college-related tasks.
