Also called the iPad Pro 2018, the Pro 3 is perhaps one of the most expected tech devices of this year. We heard some news about it, this time in a mobile app analytics platform, Appsee. Apparently, it will feature a screen resolution that would be similar to the models released in 2017.
Another rumor suggests that this iPad will come with no headphone jack and it will be 5.9 inches thick. MacRumors said that Appsee managed to find out that the new iPad Pro models will feature the same screen resolutions as the current 12.9 inches and 10.5 inches models. The iPad 8,1 to 8,4 should come with 1112×834 points of display resolution, while the following models until 8,8 will boast 1366×1024 points of resolution.
What is important to know is that points of resolution don’t mean the same as pixel resolution. Apple applied a modifier, making every point to have four pixels, which will have the results looking like this:
- 1,366×1,024 (2) = 2,732×2,048 pixels – The same screen resolution of the 2017 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
- 1112×834 (2) = 2,224×1,668 pixels – The same screen resolution of the 2017 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
The overall size of both tablets is expected to shrink, despite the fact that they will come with the same display sizes as the ones released last year and they would still retain the aspect ratios (4:3). That’s due to the designer’s choice to opt for the appearance similar to the iPhone X that has an all-screen design.
As we already said, there are other rumors stating that the tablet will be 5.9 inches thick and it will not feature a headphone jack. The thickness aspect, however, represented the first ‘leak’ of a Twitter user so it lacks proper credibility so far, as it is the case of the headphone rumor as well.
