Gadget fans are eagerly awaiting Apple’s event on September 12th for the official reveal of a trio of iPhones and a new Apple Watch.
But the trillion dollar tech company may have another product undergoing a 2018 upgrade: the iPad Pro. While the standard iPad tablet got a new refresh earlier this year, the ‘Pro’ model hasn’t been updated since June 2017.
That may change later this month. According to computer-aided design (CAD) renders obtained by Twitter account OnLeaks, the new iPad Pro (2018) will sport hugely reduced bezels around the screen and no home button.
This obviously echoes the design of the iPhone X, which dispensed with the Home button and debuted a new all-screen design last year.
The render also shows new antenna lines around the corners of the tablet which could help cellular reception for those models that take a SIM card.
Also present is the Smart Connector magnetic connection on the bottom of the device that allows it to be connected to accessories like Apple’s smart keyboard.
Apple, as is its habit, won’t comment on speculation about its upcoming product lines.
But given it’s been over a year since the last iPad Pro, it seems reasonable to start getting excited about the possibility of a new tablet appearing at next week’s event.
And given that Samsung recently announce its impressive Galaxy Tab S4 device, we feel Apple will want to take the tablet crown back.
