So far based on all the rumors and evidence that we’ve seen, it seems that it’s more or less a guarantee that come 30th October, Apple is expected to officially announce a new iPad Pro with an edge-to-edge display and also support for Face ID. If you’re looking for more “evidence” of that, Guilherme Rambo of 9to5Mac has discovered additional proof.
This proof comes in the form of an icon that was discovered within iOS which is an icon of an iPad. However this particular icon does not have a home button and also seems to sport a full-screen display, which seems to corroborate earlier rumors and leaks of such an iPad. While Face ID can’t be conveyed in an icon, the lack of a home button means that Touch ID is most likely out of the question (unless Apple decided to move it to the back, which seems unlikely).
The upcoming iPad Pro refresh is shaping up to be rather exciting because while many expected a refresh, it seems that this is a rather huge refresh as it would introduce a new design to the iPad lineup, which we have to say was a long time coming. The renders are all suggesting flat edges around the tablet instead of the more rounded edges found on the current design.
We’re also hearing that Apple could ditch Lightning for USB-C, which is a rather big deal as Apple has been known for their love of proprietary ports. Either way we should have the details soon so check back with us on the 30th of October for the details.
