The most recent computer renders based on the CAD files leaked earlier could show us the first authentic images of the upcoming 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2018. According to the renders, the new iPad would present almost edge-to-edge screen and iPhone-like antennas lines. Also, its chassis reminds of iPhone 4 style, to some extent.
The new iPad Pro 2018 renders, leaked on Twitter by Steve Hemmerstoffer from OnLeaks, present a redesigned iPad Apple fans expecting to see it on the market this fall. But we should take this with a grain of salt as no one – not even Steve Hemmerstoffer – could say the leaked CAD schematics are 100% genuine.
iPad Pro 2018 is different from the current Apple’s aesthetics lines
After OnLeaks leaked the CAD schematics of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2018, Steve Hemmerstoffer from OnLeaks collaborated with the MySmartPrice tech blog to create the first computer renders of the upcoming iPad.
According to the new renders, iPad Pro 2018 ditched the rounded finishes of the chassis and adopted an angular case design. We witnessed a very similar design on iPhone 4 back in 2013.
We can see two rows of speakers flanking the bottom side of the chassis and unchanged buttons position when compared to the already existing iPad models. On the other hand, the Home button is gone, and the presence of the Apple headphones jack is confirmed bringing the upcoming iPad Pro 2018 in line with iPhone handsets.
12.9-inch iPad Pro 2018 would launch this fall with FaceID
Besides what the new renders give us regarding the design, some code lines from iOS 12 beta versions revealed the possibility that the upcoming 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2018 model would boast FaceID.
Apple will hold a special event at its Apple Park HQ on September 12th when the fans expect the company to announce the new iPhone 2018 models. Some of them hope Apple will also present the new generation of iPads with iPad Pro 2018 leading the pack.
