There is just a little over a week to go until Apple’s official event where the brand will reveal its newest devices, and there has already been leaked videos of how the new iPad will look like.
It’s expected to unveil three new iPhones on that occasion, but some new iPads may join them too. One of these, the 2018 version of the has been leaked today through CAD-based renders and a video.
The images show the tablet with rounded corners with slim and symmetrical bezels on all sides. It’s not unusual to see equal side bezels where users place their hands, but the top and bottom ones do suggest something about the upcoming model — no notch, no home home button.
This could mean that speculations that FaceID would be coming to all the new iPhones and iPad could be correct, as the bezel certainly allows space for a TrueDepth camera, and the lack of home button indicates a new user interface will likely be adopted.
A charging port can be seen at the bottom middle, a power button is on the right corner along with volume controls just below and there are four speaker grills, one at each corner. What can’t be seen is a jack port, so users may need a wireless bluetooth headset.
Other components of the iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) is a 10.5-inch variant, both shipping with LCD panels and the A12 or A12X chipset. Apple Pencil support should obviously be in, unlike the 3.5mm headset jack which is gone.
According to Apple analysts there will be two new iPad Pro models that measure at 11 and 12.9-inches. But to find out if that is the case, and if the renders are accurate, fans will have to wait until Apple’s keynote on September 12.
