iPad Pro 2 Update: WWDC Launch is Highly Unlikely; Here's Why! [VIDEO]
Apple is expected to launch three iPad Pro models this year. The upcoming lineups include the 12.9-inch, 10.5-inch and 9.7-inch tablets.
It can be argued that WWDC 2017 is a highly anticipated event since the faithfuls are hoping to see iPad Pro 2. It seems that every detail of the new iPad is already scattered around, thus, making us easier to guess what the tablets will look like.
For instance, Apple will reportedly launch an iPad Pro Mini as the smallest iPad Pro variant. This is not exactly a rebrand of iPad Mini since it carries some of the Pro features - including Apple Pencil compatible. Other revamps include Touch ID sensor, and superthin bezels, Blorge reported.
Specs-wise, the iPad Pro 2 will house some of the powerful hardware choices. Fans can expect A10x chip powering each tablets for a speedier performance and smoother user experience. A few online publications have learned that Apple will equip the devices with water resistant chassis. Another evidence suggests that Apple will ditch the headphone jack - making the iPad Pro 2 lineups align with the iPhone 7.
iPad Pro 2 Release Date
All of the predictions point at WWDC event but some experts believe that the iPad Pro 2 will not debut at the developers conference. In March, several media outlets reported the 10.5-inch iPad Pro entering mass production, thus, it might not be ready for a debut at the annual conference.
Last year's WWDC keynotes were MacOS, iOS 10, and WatchOS. It is hard to see any product launching during the event this year. Moreover, judging from the previous pattern, the iPad Pro was introduced in September 2015. Hence, Apple could be using the same time window for its successor launch, Expert Reviews reported.
Fans should not be discouraged as it is Apple's fashion to keep everything in the drawer before revealing anything until everything is set. Stay tuned for more iPad Pro 2 updates!
