Word has it that Apple has a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro in the works that could be unveiled this coming June at WWDC 2017. In terms of design we’re not sure what to expect – could it be that Apple will stick to the current iPad Pro design? Or will the new iPad Pros start to adopt some of the rumored iPhone 8’s design features?
According to a tweet by Benjamin Geskin, maybe not. Geskin’s tweet claims that the new iPad Pro will not be adopting a bezel-less design and that the home button will still be present. This means that for all intents and purposes, the new iPad Pros should look similar to their predecessors and that the changes will most likely be under the hood.
iPad Pro 10.5′ WON’T be bezel-less. Still bezels. Still home button. 7mm side bezels. 19mm up & down. (approx) Render coming soon
We suppose that’s not the worst thing to hear, plus we can only assume that Apple would want to keep the iPhone 8’s design features a secret (or as much as possible) before the reveal. Another tweet by Geskin also revealed alleged cases for the iPad Pro, both the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch models.
What’s interesting about these cases is the camera cutout which seems to be similar to what we’ve seen with the iPhone 8, but some have speculated that this is to make room for one camera lens and one flash unit, as opposed to the iPad Pros sporting a dual camera system. Either way take it with a grain of salt and check back with us in a couple of weeks where hopefully we’ll have the details to share.
