11-Inch iPad Pro, No New iPhones To Be Revealed At WWDC 2018
Talk of new iPad releases has really begun to intensify of late, with Apple’s notebook lineup also expected to receive a refresh this year.
According to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, we can expect at least one new iPad Pro to arrive fairly soon, with a display measuring around 11-inches in size.
We have, of course, already heard multiple rumors that suggested Apple will launch a new iPad Pro in 10.5-inch form later this year, complete with slimmer bezels all around and no Home button to speak of. With that on the cards, it is entirely possible that Apple could increase the size of the display to something nearer the 11-inches that this new rumor claims, all without increasing the overall size of the device itself.
According to the report, we can expect the new 11-inch iPad Pro to debut alongside an updated 12.9-inch version of the iPad Pro during Apple’s annual developer conference, now confirmed to take place on June 4th.
Both new iPads are expected to include Face ID and new A11X processors, although whether the devices will need to include notches in their displays a la the iPhone X remains to be seen. With more space to play with, we would surely expect the iPad to remain notch-free, but if Apple does truly intend on making a feature out of it, then all bets are off.
The same report, citing an unnamed source, claims that Apple has no new iPhones planned for the first half of 2018.
This would fly in the face of previous hopes that an iPhone SE refresh could be around the corner, although it is still possible we will see this arrive alongside higher-end iPhones towards September time.
