Apple launched 3 new iPad in 2017, at 9.7in, 10.5in and 12.9in dimensions. But our thoughts are turning into the next generation.

The most iPad Pro models were announced at WWDC 2017 on 5 and therefore are available to purchase now.

It is reasonable to expect more announcements at WWDC 2018 next summer, but we are optimistic that Apple may have more information in his usual spring press event: maybe the iPad miniature 5. Sources quoted by Bloomberg predict, in fact, the new iPads will be published slightly more than a year following the last important iPad Pro upgrade, which indicates a late summer, early fall timeframe – possibly August or September 2018. The 10.5in iPad Pro starts at £, 619 for the 64GB with the Wi-Fi model and £, 749 for the 64GB Wi-Fi ++ Mobile model, whereas the 12.9in iPad Pro starts at £, 769 for the 64GB Wi-Fi +model and £, 899 for the 64GB Wi-Fi ++ Mobile model.

Apple bumped up the prices in the United Kingdom as the pound decreased following the Brexit referendum outcome, and we fear the prices could rise again – if the pound carries on to battle, or if Apple decides to bring in an Apple iPhone X esque edge at the edge of the screen, or both. Apple is likely to bring across a number of the design changes from the iPhone X into the iPad line-up in 2018. Bloomberg’s sources expect a minumum of one brand new iPad model to ditch the Home button and go for an edge-to border screen, substituting Touch ID with Face ID.

The sources indicates that this model is going to have a screen size that is close the currently available 10.5in, but eliminating the Home button will allow Apple to drive the closer to 11in, or keep it the exact same size when shrinking the chassis. The sources do not expect this screen to be OLED. They do not why not, but after the creation difficulties the iPhone X’s OLED screen apparently caused, the business could be timid of going all-in on the tech only yet.iPad Pro models normally incorporate a modified version of the chip from the previous iPhone – the last time around the iPhone 7 came out with an A10 Fusion chip, and the iPad obtained an A10X Fusion. The iPhone 8 and the iPhone X come with the A11 Bionic chip, so we’d expect the iPad Pro models released in 2018 into incorporate a marginally A11X Bionic – even though A11 is terribly fast already.
