IPad Pro Concept (2018)

New iPad Pro could be thinner and… goodbye 3.5mm output?

Last week, we commented on some possible characteristics of the next iPads Pro, which could be announced this month. Among the likely new features, Apple’s new tablets are expected to adopt Face ID, the A12X chip and, who knows, a USB-C port in place of the current Lightning.

As the rumors do not stop, we will see other possible details of the new iPad Pro that are running around.

On Twitter, the user CoinCoin – who already got the names and characteristics of the XS, XS Max and XR iPhones right before launch – guaranteed that the new iPads will not have the 3.5mm headphone jack and that they will have 5.9mm thick.

Of course, there will be no headphone output on the next new iPad. Although 5.9mm thick is very good.

The information CoinCoin go to those released a few days ago by leaker Ben Geskin, who shared alleged renders of the new iPad Pro. It is worth noting that such thickness would be compatible with the smaller model of the new tablet, which may have an 11-inch screen.

According to the Appsee analytics platform, the iPad8,1, iPad8,2, iPad8,3 and iPad8,4 models will possibly have a screen with a resolution of 2224 × 1668 pixels, while the iPad8,5, iPad8,6, iPad8 models , 7 and iPad8,8 will have a panel of 2732 × 2048 pixels – resolutions identical to those of the current models of 10.5 and 12.9 inches, respectively.

As for the other dimensions, the images published in the Slashleaks and shared by Geskin suggest that the smaller iPad Pro will be 247.64 Ă— 178.52mm (against 250.6 Ă— 174.1mm from the current one). For the larger model, the bet is that it will have 280.66x215mm (against 305.7 Ă— 220.6mm from the current one). Furthermore, it is likely that bezels of the new gadgets measure around 6mm (on the top, bottom and sides).

As we said, it is likely that the new iPad Pro will eliminate the 3.5mm headphone jack, which is hardly a novelty – considering that she had already said goodbye to iPhones in 2016. Last July, the Japanese blog Macotakara designed almost the same features as the new iPad Pro, including the end of the headphone jack.

Even though there are “rumors proving rumors”, we will only know which ones will be true and which will fall apart when Apple actually introduces the new iPad Pro – probably later this month. Until then, we can only continue to follow the possible news.
