We know that Apple is planning a big event on September 12th where it will reveal all its next-generation iPhones. However, new leaks are showing us that Apple wants to surprise the world by unveiling a brand-new iPad Pro 12.9-inch. The leak comes from the folks at @OnLeaks who have a good track record of predicting Apple’s every move and it also includes a picture (featured image) of the said device.
New 2018 iPad Pro 12.9-inch
The first thing we need to mention about this latest leak is that @OnLeaks is the same source that leaked Apple’s 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone models that will be revealed on September 12th. Therefore, we have good reason to believe that Apple is indeed planning to surprise everyone with a new iPad Pro 12.9-inch.
The only thing we have to go on is the leaked press render of iPad Pro 12.9-inch. The image shows us that this device looks way different than its predecessors and that it will sport an innovative design.
For starters, iPad Pro 12.9-inch doesn’t ship with a physical home button and its screen bezels have been slimmed down. The interesting thing about the iPad Pro 12.9-inch is that the device doesn’t sport a top-notch display like iPhone X.
The fact that Apple’s new iPad Pro 12.9-inch doesn’t feature a physical button leads us to believe that the device will ship with Face ID technology instead. Therefore, iPad Pro 12.9-inch owners will be able to unlock the device and to sign in to accounts just by looking at it and waiting for the Face ID feature to scan their face with the TrueDepth Selfie camera.
iPad Pro 12.9-inch will feature a charging port at the bottom side in the middle, but it will not have a classic 3.5mm auxiliary jack. However, this was to be expected.
