iPad Pro 2 Specs, Update: Apple Flagships with Powerhouse; Two Models Reportedly Coming Next Month
Apple just launched the new iPad to replace iPad Air 2 and now it is time to wait for the other two tablets released in a big event.
As the affordable iPad has come to fruition, loyalists are now eagerly waiting for the two iPad Pro models that will be launched soon. The most probable release date would be at Apple Park grand opening in April.
As far as the specs are concerned, the new iPad Pro 2 will be slimmer with water resistant feature. The 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch iPad Pro models will contain Apple powerful A10x chip. The processor uses 10nm architecture which will bring improvements to all areas in the device.
Apple is likely ditch the headphone jack in the next-gen tablets but all will feature quad-speaker for audio enhancement. Based on the new iPad 2017 launch, Apple seems to go cheap with its flagship. The most affordable iPad variant is now on sale for $329, according to MacRumors. Analysts have come to believe that Apple's budget iPad is part of the strategy to reach wider range of consumers.
Apparently, not all tablet users find the new iPad appealing or in any way, cheap. Compared to the ones using Android operating system, the Nexus 7 and Pixel C are among the most-popular tablets with the platform. Not to forget, the budget devices from Asus and Xiaomi.
However, fans shouldn't expect the iPad Pro 2 to be 'that cheap' since Apple will equip the tablets with more advanced, Pro features. The Cupertino giant is said to upgrade the Apple Pencil with wider app-integration. The iPad display will be smoother and faster for navigation.
The 10.5-inch tablet, in particular, will be the new addition in the iPad family with thinner bezels, MacWorld reported. Reports referenced Ming-Chi Kuo statements who claimed the medium-size tablet will aim at educational sector.
