New iPad Pro details leak: 4K over USB-C, better Pencil pairing

New iPad Pro details leak: 4K over USB-C, better Pencil pairing

The 2018 iPad Pros will use Face ID but, hopefully, one that can be used in nearly any orientation except upside-down. Both 12.9 and 10.5-inch models will have two Wi-Fi and two LTE variants each. The cellular-enabled slates will be iPad8,3, iPad8,4, iPad8,7 and iPad8,8.

The iPad Pro is supposed to launch in two sizes, and both models will come in Wi-Fi-only and Cellular versions.

According to 9to5mac, which cites "sources familiar with the development of the new 2018 iPad Pro", Apple's new tablets will add Face ID and ditch the Home button, like the iPhone XS and XR. Clearly, the cues were taken from the latest iPhone models as the company is going for a bezel-less design. Because of the lack of a notch, the top bezels will have to remain thick enough to contain the TrueDepth Camera. However, one major difference from the iPhone will be the absence of a notch.

Later this month, we expect to see Apple unveil the next version of its high-end tablet, the iPad Pro. However, the 3D facial recognition will not work upside down.

Additionally, a new Apple Pencil is also rumored with pairing procedure similar to that of Apple's AirPods and HomePod.

Apart from this, the 2018 iPad Pro will be able to output 4K HDR video to external displays via a USB-C port. A new panel in the Settings app will also let users control brightness, HDR, resolution, and other settings pertinent to managing external displays. The connector would be found on the back of the tablet. While it's still unknown if the original Apple Pencil will work on the new iPad Pros, there might be a problem mixing and matching given the new USB-C port. The 2018 iPad Pros will also sport a new magnetic connector for keyboards and accessories, though it remains to be seen if accessory makers will finally jump on that unlike with the existing Smart Connector.

There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.

Another first for the iPad Pro - or any iOS device - will be USB-C connectivity, the sources claim. Share your views in the comments.
