A lot of fans are waiting for the upcoming iPhones this September but despite that, others are still rooting for the iPad Pro 2018. In fact, numerous rumors about the handset’s features are circulating online and that includes the Cupertino-based company will possibly ditch the headphone port of the device.

Rumored Features Of iPad Pro 2018

There are numerous speculations about the iPad Pro 3 aka iPad Pro 2018 features and here are some of them:

No More Headphone Port

According to Computer World, the Cupertino-based tech giant is trying to be consistent. With that, the company’s move to eradicate the headphone port can also be carried on with the iPad Pro 3. Just in case Apple really decided to ditch the headphone port, the users can anticipate some HomePod-driven speaker design enhancements.

Face ID

Apple is expected to introduce the Face ID in the upcoming iPad Pro 2018. This has been speculatively established by the modifications in iPad’s iOS, which also splits the status bar to the left and right of the device’s display.

Considering that, the lack of a notch in the leaked icon could suggest that the Cupertino-based tech company has taken some steps to hide the Face ID system behind the display of the iPad Pro 3 aka iPad Pro 2018. This was also something the company was allegedly working on pre-iPhone X but it wasn’t able to pull together in time.

Better Screen

It is believed that the fans could expect two new models of iPad Pro 2018. These will possibly be an 11-inch model that will be the replacement for the 10.5-inch and a 12-inch top of the line tablet. Nonetheless, the huge modification in the screen department is on the display that will be used on these devices. It is said that the new display will deliver more active screen space and ultra-thin bezels, which was suggested by the icon seen in the iOS 12 developer beta. Additionally, the same leak also hinted that the Home Button will be ditched too.


The existing iPad Pro handsets are engineered by Apple’s A10X Fusion processors; the higher-speed variety of the said chip is utilized in the iPhone 7 line in 2016. With that being said, it’s only safe to anticipate a bump to an A11 variant. This is really possible since Apple plans to ramp up its performance gain in the tablet market by incorporating a souped-up 7-nanometer A12 chip inside the upcoming iPad Pro 3 and other iPad Pro model.

Smart Connector

Recently, an alleged iPad Pro 2018 case design has surfaced online. This indicated a new cut-out on one side that could possibly be where the Smart Connector will be relocated. This could mean two Smart Connectors: one for portrait and the other one id for landscape use. On the other hand, an earlier rumor has suggested that Apple was unable to make Face ID function in landscape mode and this may turn out to be factual.

Battery Life

The upcoming iOS 12 will deliver better performance, stability, and battery life. With that, there’s a huge probability that the users of the upcoming iPad Pro 2018 would feel these enhancements predominantly since the new processors will impose lower power demands for improved performance. This slender gain may be counterbalance marginally by the amplified RAM in these systems and expected greater capacity.

These are the rumored features and specs that the iPad Pro 2018 could possibly have. But since these are just speculations, the details are advised to be taken with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, concrete details will surely surface as the device’s launch nears.
