New iPad Pro to shrink in size, drop headphone jack

Share

It thinks that Apple wants to have a full redesign with the 2018 iPad Pro models so it looks a bit like the iPhone X because that did so well.

A recent report from Macotakara suggests that new iPad models will have a redesigned and relocated Smart Connector that would allow them to connect to Apple's Smart Keyboard in "new ways". There are basically several rumors involving the upcoming launch such as there won't be any 3.5mm headphone jack, the iPad Pro will be nearly bezel-less and will have an ergonomic design similar to Apple iPhone SE and bunch of other speculations have been discovered. "The leaks suggest that Apple will reduce the size of a 10.5" model from 250.6 x 174.1 x 6mm which is now in use to a new shrunk size of 247.5 x 178.7 x 6mm. With the 12.9-inch model, the existing dimensions are 305.7-by-220.6-by-6.9mm, where as the new one will be 280-by-215-by-6.4mm. The slimmer bezels at the top and bottom are good enough to surround the Face ID area at the top and the display controller at the bottom. As far as the upcoming iPad Pros and iPhones, Apple is unlikely to ship with them with Lightning to 3.5mm adapter.

While there is little of any surprise in the new images it does show that previous rumors do appear to have been right on the money, as has become the norm with the last few years' worth of iPhone launches. The new iPad Pros will be compact and yet offer the same delightful viewing experience with its True Tone display technology.

The site also reports that a "diamond-cut" design will feature front and back, similar to the iPhone SE. One of the reasons for this change is because as of now Face ID works only when the iPad Pro is in a vertical orientation.

While the headphone jack was removed from the iPhone 7 in 2016, this would be the first iPad model to see the 3.5mm jack be removed. However, the Face ID feature won't be supported in the landscape mode.
