Just a few days from now we’re expecting Apple to hold its big September event for the unveiling of its new gadgets. One of those gadgets could be the iPad Pro 2018 (10.5 inches and 12.9 inches).

Speaking of the iPad Pro 2018, new renders of its larger version has been spotted online, revealing that it’s going to ditch the home button in favor of Face ID and many more. Let’s review them, shall we?

The Design

Latest renders for the iPad Pro 2018 has been spotted online – specifically its 12.9-inch version. Although the renders may not be 100 percent, the probability of it being fake is low because “it would be really hard for someone to just imagine and fake them,” according to a report.

On the front design, the iPad Pro 2018 features smaller bezels and doesn’t have a home button. With the lack of the home button, it will feature a TrueDepth camera, getting Face ID in return.

On its bottom design, there’s also the absence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Instead, it features two speaker grilles on the corner and a charging port in the middle.

For its right side design, three buttons could be seen. At the top are believed to be the volume keys, while in the middle is the power button.

Finally, for the back design, it features a camera module (with a camera bump) on the top left. Just below it, we can also see on what could possibly the LED flash.

On other reports, the Smart Connector for this year’s model is positioned right about the Lightning Port. Also, in terms of size, the 2018 12.9-inch model will also be smaller, sporting a measurement of 280.6×215×5.85mm – the 2017 variant measures 305.7 x 220.6 x 6.9 mm.

Other Specs/Features

iPad Pro 2018 is expected to be armed with an A12X processor, feature 4GB of RAM, and come with fast charging support. There was also a speculation that the upcoming 2018 iPads will be fully compatible with accessories that were released for the first and second-generation models.

What can you say about the “supposed” design of the iPad Pro 2018? Does it look good, or do you find it lacking? Do tell us in the comment section below.
