Apple’s Next iPad Pro Might Ditch the Headphone Jack

The leaked reports are arriving from Japan and it suggests that Apple may reduce the dimensions of both the iPad Pro models.

The same report also says that Apple is set to introduce the Face ID module to the iPad Pro lineup but with a twist. Apple is not expected to ship the new iPad Pro models with a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter, which would be in line with analyst predictions suggesting that adapter will not come with the 2018 iPhones either.

Macotakara also suggests that the iPad Pro will get Face ID features, something that's been rumored since past year, and which was seemingly confirmed in a recent iOS 12 beta.

Meanwhile, the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro will allegedly clock in at 280mm tall by 215mm wide by 6.4mm thick, compared to the current 12.9-incher's footprint of 305.7mm by 220.6mm by 6.9mm. The incorporation of the new touch sensor technology is also the reason manufacturers can go for bezels as low as just 0.5mm. The company is looking to launch the new models of iPad by the end of this year.

First noted by 9to5Mac, the report gives us some idea about the possible dimensions of the iPad Pro models. Like the previous editions, iPad Pro (2018) will be coming in two screen sizes - 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch.

This would mean that the tablets will feature a beveled design similar to the iPhone SE - however, this is unlikely.

But if you are someone who loves an audio jack, then you might not agree with the upcoming iPad Pros which won't have a 3.5mm audio jack. There's no confirmation on the names of the upcoming iPhones for now, but there are details about the features, design, specs and price of the new iPhones floating all around the internet. What's new, however, is the mention that FaceID won't work while the iPad is in landscape orientation.
