12:40 PM

One of the highly anticipated tech gadgets this year is the iPad Pro 3 (aka iPad Pro 2018), which is why it comes to no surprise that the tech enthusiasts are always on the lookout for new details regarding about it. This time around, aside from the already known rumored specs and features, recent reports suggest that it will also come with a new version of Apple Pencil and Magnetic Connector.

The Apple Pencil

According to an exclusive by 9to5Mac, a new version of the Apple Pencil will be released for the iPad Pro 3. However, it is yet unknown as to whether the current version of the Apple Pencil will work with the new iPad.

The Magnetic Connector

The next rumor is that the iPad Pro 2018 will have a brand new connector called Magnetic Connector for accessories at the back of the tablet. With this new connector, it will allow for the connection of different accessories, such as a new version of the Smart Keyboard and other third-party accessories.

Other Rumored Specs/Features

For its design, the iPad Pro 3 is rumored to have an edge-to-edge display, Face ID and rounded corners. It will ditch the Home Button, 3.5mm headphone jack, and won’t feature a notch as well.

Speaking of its screen, although the upcoming tablet is expected to come with two screen sizes (10.5 inches and 12.9 inches) just like its predecessor, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that for the smaller version will feature an 11-inch screen instead. Another rumor is that it is reportedly going to feature up to 3840 x 2160 pixels or 4K displays.

In regards to its processor, a leakster who goes by the name “Longhorn” claimed that upcoming tablets will be packed with a processor carrying the internal name T8027 which is the A12X Bionic processor. This comes to a surprise for some, because the iPad Pro 3 was initially thought to be packed with A11X Fusion chip.

When Will It Be Released?

Yesterday, we published an article regarding Apple’s next event. Based on the information gathered, it could be at the 3rd or 4th week of this month. And on that event, we also expect the Mac Mini Pro 2018 and MacBook Air 2018 to be featured.
