Apple To Release 10.9 Inch Bezel-less iPad Pro In 2017
 

The latest MacBook Pro release has got everyone pretty much occupied. However while Mac steals the limelight Apple is rumored to be secretly working on another project. A recent rumor via macrumors claims that Apple is working on a trio of iPads to be released next year.

The latest new research note issued by Barclays Research analysts Blayne Curtis, Christopher Hemmelgarn, Thomas O’Malley, and Jerry Zhang. In this research paper it is claimed that the iPad models will actually be out for shipping in March.

We haven’t seen much rumors regarding the iPad since Apple has introduced the MacBook and the iPhone 7 has kept customers busy in the mobile world. However this certainly means that Apple has been working on the iPad and will be making an announcement sooner or later.

The latest report also stresses that Apple will be continuing its focus on the iPad Pro instead of the iPad mini. Let us not forget that the current line of iPad Pro did do quite well among customers who brought them even though it did not create quite an impact in the market.

The research note as stated earlier, states that the models will be launched in March and will include a new 9.7 inch, 12.9 inch and a brand new 10.9 bezel less 10.9 inch model. As you can guess most obviously the 10.9 inch is due to be the most exciting of the trio.

The 1.9 inch bezel less iPad Pro model is rumored to have the same physical foot print as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro model. We did expect something different as the 10.9-inch model has a larger screen than the 9.7-inch iPad Pro model.

The only possible sane way in which Apple has made this possible is by removing the Home button. However we are not sure about this move so let’s save our judgment for now. Most ironically the iPad Pro models will carry the 3.5mm headphone jack which the iPhone 7 has famously ditched.

Along with the headphone jack it will also include four microphones. Those of you who were expecting more from the iPad lineup will not be very happy. The iPad mini will not be refreshed at all and the iPad mini 4 will be the only model available.

Although there is disappointment from the iPad line up the iPad Pro trio seems to be promising.
