- Which is the best tablet?
The device looks pretty much as expected, with a single camera on the back and super-thin bezels on the front. Within the top bezel is the Face ID-enabling TrueDepth camera setup; the bezels are still thick enough so no notch is required.
We are still expecting the iPad Pro to come in two sizes 8211; the large 12.9-inch and the smaller 10.5-inch. The sides of the device as shown in the renders are squarer with rounded corners and antenna strips for the 4G model (rather than the antenna being hidden behind a black panel as with older/other iPads). It8217;s a bit like the iPhone 5, 5S and iPhone SE in that respect. Also expect there to be no headphone jack. Once again there will be four speakers.
The render features a relocated smart connector, but we8217;re not so sure about this. The render location means that the smart keyboard would have to be used vertically with the iPad and we8217;re not sure users would be up for that as a permanent solution. Mind you, we8217;re still not sure if Face ID will work in landscape mode 8211; it doesn8217;t on the iPhone X currently, after all. Will it on the iPad Pro?
If we are going to get a new iPad Pro this year then there are two options (rather unsurprisingly, we8217;ll grant you). Either they will debut at Apple8217;s 8220;Gather Round8221; event on 12 September, or we8217;ll see them sometime in October. Possibly that later date would also involve the launch of a new MacBook Air replacement or new Mac mini, although we8217;re still half expecting those models to appear next week as part of a super-big Apple launch.
