There are indications that Apple is no longer opting for a headphone jack for the new version of the iPad Pro. In addition, the whole would be housed in a smaller housing. Apple itself has not yet released anything about the new iPad Pro.
This is reported by the Japanese site Macotakara, which relies on sources from the parts industry. Because these are not sources directly at Apple, it is difficult to verify whether the rumors are actually correct. According to the site, Apple chooses, among other things, to adjust the housing so that it becomes smaller, and the decision is also made to no longer build in a 3.5 mm connection.
According to the Japanese site, the dimensions of the model with 10.5″ screen will be adjusted from 250.6 x 174.1 x 6.1 mm to 247.5 x 178.7 x 6 mm, making it slightly more The larger 12.9″ model, on the other hand, will be reduced from 305.7 x 220.6 x 6.9 mm to 280 x 215 x 6.4 mm. Macotakara also reports that the iPads can be unlocked via Face ID.
Apple itself has not yet released anything about the new iPad Pro models. As a result, it is not yet clear whether the rumors are correct and when the company would like to announce the new tablets. However, it is likely that it will still have to happen this year.
