Upcoming iPad Pro to lose bezels and headphone jack this year

Both upcoming iPad Pro models are also expected to ditch Apple's traditional Home button in favor of a TrueDepth camera system for Face ID. The report by Macotakara also claims that this year's iPad Pro models will feature Face ID, but it notes that there is no support for landscape Face ID which was earlier reported. Both the iPad Pro models will have the same diamond cut design with easy to handle and portable to use thanks to its nearly bezel-less screen.

According to a new report out of Macotakara (via 9to5Mac), Apple is expected to further slim down the iPad Pro's form factor when the next generation of the device is announced.

Apple has been rolling out iPad Pros with LCD screens for a long time now.

In terms of shrinking dimensions, the 10.5-inch tablet will be trimmed to 247.5 millimeters tall, 178.7 millimeters wide, and 6 millimeters thick. July 2018 saw the appearance of five regulatory filings in the Eurasian database by Apple, hinting at five new iPad models.

Geskin, who has shared images of upcoming Apple handsets in the past, tweeted photos of a 6.1-inch iPhone that closely mirrors the rumored 'budget model'.

As September comes closer, new reports about Apple's iPhone and iPad devices are surfacing.

Speculation has been building that Apple will release three new iPhones in the fall - a 5.8-inch model, 6.1-inch iPhone and a super-sized 6.5-inch "XL" version.

Apple is widely speculated to update the Pencil stylus with the 2018 iPad Pro lineup.

This would mean that the tablets will feature a beveled design similar to the iPhone SE - however, this is unlikely. There's no confirmation on the names of the upcoming iPhones for now, but there are details about the features, design, specs and price of the new iPhones floating all around the internet.

According to Mac Otakara, a Japanese supply chain to Apple, the Cupertino-based tech giant will shrink the overall size of the iPad Pros offering a near bezel-less edge-to-edge display. In other words, the tablets are going to join the iPhone X in ditching bezels nearly completely. 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.
