New iPad Pro Leak suggests, face ID, removal of headphone jack. "Really?"




<div _ngcontent-c16 = "" innerhtml = "

Since its release in the spring of 2010, the iPad has undergone some notable changes: the first-to-second generation change, for example, was immense. IPad Air was a remarkable step forward in industrial design and has now become the model for the latest entry-level iPad, which is presented here.

But probably the biggest change has been in the various models of the iPad Pro, from the 1

2.9-inch screen model in fall 2015 to the 9.7-inch model the following year and the 10.5-inch model, which went on sale last June. [19659003] The latest rumor, based on a supplier report from the Japanese site Mac Otakara and picked up by 9to5Mac, suggests that the upgrade models this fall could be a similar step.

what was suggested in the last leak, and how likely is it?

Face ID to replace Touch ID

This is a real game changer and I think it's very likely. First, there are other leaks, including a report by the ever-reliable Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that the next iPad Pro would move the Touch ID security system to the Face ID used on the iPhone X.

That makes a lot of sense for me. On the one hand, it saves space when you remove the Touch ID button. And if you've used Face ID on the iPhone X, you know it's an incredibly simple, highly efficient system that works like a dream. It also has the side effect of changing the interface from the swipe-up-to-unlock mechanics preferred on the current iPads and most iPhones to the iPhone X's preferred. Apple did not say that, but I think Face ID is The Future and will be on every new iPhone model and iPad Pro from now on. It could even be in the previous update for the entry-level iPad next year.

So it would be good to unify the UI between devices, as anyone who has tried to mess up on their current iPad knows. By the way, Ming-Chi Kuo's claim is that the next iPad Pro will have an 11-inch display, not the 10.5-inch display currently and as predicted here.

This latest rumor also says there will be a new 12.9in model as well.

Thinner Edges

Take away from the Touch ID button, and you suddenly have the opportunity to remove the real estate it currently houses, which is slimmer Bezel provides. How slim will depend on whether the LCD display technology remains or swaps, like the iPhone X, to OLED. If the latter, Apple could possibly use a flexible OLED as in the iPhone X. It works there, so that the element that creates the chin on most smartphones, the display controller can be hidden and gives the iPhone X everything (19659003) I would expect the next iPad Pro to have an LCD screen, but that does not mean that there will be a huge bottom frame. With larger gadgets like tablets, you can deliver strong aesthetics with a wider bezel than on a phone. It's possible that the next iPad Pro will have a screen that swirls around the Face ID camera unit like the iPhone X, but I suspect that will not be the case with the iPad Pro. Apple likes symmetry, so it probably has a similar bezel up and down, just enough to cover the Face ID area above and the controller below.

However, the long edges could have very thin bezels, they are not exactly bold on the current model.

Provided the next iPad Pro retains the same 10.5 inches and 12.9 inches screen sizes, then it seems more likely than ever that the screen will tech LCD.

More Compact Dimensions

According to MacOtakara, the new iPad Pro models are getting smaller, which makes sense given the thinner bezels. The 10.5-inch model will evidently shrink from 250.6 x 174.1 x 6.1 mm to 247.5 x 178.7 x 6 mm. The larger 12.9-inch device is also shrinking, the page says this time from the current measurements (305.7 x 220.6 x 6.9 mm) to 280 x 215 x 6.4 mm

This is logical Since Apple has always wanted maximum screen size in minimal gadget dimensions, and the iPhone X is just the purest form nor that craving.

Designed to look like the iPhone SE (just look bigger)

The report Mac Otakara cites that the edge of the new iPad Pro will diamond cut, similar to the iPhone SE. Well, the iPad design has evolved smoothly over the years, but I find that less likely. This is a gadget that rests in the palms of one or both hands and the sharp back of the iPhone SE does not work in a machine of this size – or is that a lack of ingenuity on my part? I would expect Apple to have thought deeply about the comfort of the iPad Pro, and I can not balance that with diamond cut edges in front and back.

No headphone jack. Wait, what?

I'm honest, I'm really not sure. Apple may want to unify the tablet-phone interface, but has never shown any interest in copying the designs in any other way. For example, the power button on the iPhone moved from the top edge to the top east side, so to speak, from the iPhone 7. But every iPad since still has this button on the top edge, because I think the ergonomics are

safe "Apple makes us a wireless future, but AirPods and other wireless headphones already work with the iPad, so the only reason to drop the headphone jack is when the tablets are too thin to pick them up

Again I can err, but I'm skeptical.

Will a new Apple iPad Pro move the Smart Connector? David Phelan

Different Alignment for Smart Connector

I'm sorry, Mac Otakara, but your supplier is really losing me now. The theory is that the Smart Connector, which is currently on the left edge of the iPad Pro, is being moved down near the Lightning connector.

This is a tablet with Face ID, which is unlocked with the iPad in landscape orientation is impossible. The Smart Connector, for example, used to connect to the excellent Smart Keyboard, works only in portrait orientation and connects to the base of the iPad Pro.

Maybe it's a lack of imagination, but I can easily do it. Do not see how that works. The Smart Keyboard will have to be about as big as it should be usable now – under those rumors it will be 4mm narrower and more than that will be a deal-breaker, I would say.

Of course you could pull the keyboard off the iPad Pro where it fits perfectly as a front cover, and connect it to the base to type, but at first that's clunky and not at all Apple. Second, it would probably make the upright tablet unstable.

There was a rumor that Face ID also works in landscape format, which is a likely solution for me. Or Apple did something that I did not think about.

As a company, Apple is hard to predict, but it's also very easy to profile. And part of that profile is that it's all thought through in incredible detail. This makes the new Smart Connector position unlikely in my opinion.

So, how likely is this rumor?

Size, Bezel, Face ID – all very likely, I would say. But the diamond cut edges and the removal of the headphone jack are less, though still possible. The movement of the Smart Connectors baffles me. The new tablets are coming this fall, I think, so it will not take long and I will update this post if more rumors are coming up.
