Barclays analysts, the very ones responsible for making claims about the upcoming iPhone 8, are at it again! This time what they are reporting is that Apple is gearing heavily toward a prime target of unleashing three fresh iPads by March next year. From the three we are heavily expecting, it will be most likely be refreshed versions of both iPad Pro models. This could come in 12.9 and 9.7 inch sizes. There are also strong reports of a fresh iPad model that would resemble 9.7 inch iPad Air 2 in terms of footprint size but still presents no bezels.
So what we are looking at will bring up a screen size ranging in the interval of 10 and 11 inches. This will include a fresh series of screen sizes for the iPad. And now for the 12.9-inch iPad, reports reaching us strongly suggest it could get fresh True Tone display just like that which enjoyed its debut on the iPad Pro 9.7 inch model.
Now moving over to the upcoming new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, it is possible this model will not be carrying a “Pro” branding. This could be because it will be carrying a “low cost” model. The sales of this device would be carried out alongside the iPad Mini; this will now bring about a fresh portfolio of iPads, should all these sneak into reality. In the same vein, there are no big plans on ground to refresh the iPad Mini- maybe till next year. This means we will not be having any new iPad Mini before this year falls off.
So if there happens to be truth in the bezel-less iPad, it would then surely confirm the possibility that Apple could do something similar for a 2017 iPhone. From a personal point of view, I don’t think this is bad at all considering Apple should be looking for fresh life and fresh features as its spontaneous growth is already slowing down.
