Despite the numerous iPad Pro 3 rumors, an actual picture of the tablet didn’t surface so far. This will all change, however, as there are a few renders which have been revealed. A fairly reliable leaker, @OnLeaks, shared, on behalf of MySmartPrice, some images based on factory CADs (computer-aided designs). While admitting that they might not be completely accurate, so far they represent the best we got.
Apparently showing the iPad Pro 12.9 which is due this year, these images showcase a product with smaller bezels around the screen, much smaller than any currently available iPad. This also means that the fingerprint scanner and the home button might have been completely removed. This sort of confirms previous rumors that you will be using FaceID to authenticate and unlock this device.
You should also note that there is no notch present because the bezels are still big enough to provide room for cameras. Other important details are the metal back which has antenna strips along the bottom and the top of the device and the single-lens camera present on the rear.
Apparently, the Smart Connector has been moved to the bottom of the back (if you hold the device in portrait). Both volume keys are present on the right edge which also houses some sort of mystery port or button. No, it is not the power button, as it is placed on the top edge, sharing space with two speaker grilles.
The charging port and two more speaker grilles can be found on the bottom edge and it is with great sadness that we report no visuals of a 3.5 mm headphone port. All must be taken with a grain of salt for now but maybe on Apple’s event on September 12 we might get an actual good look.
