Apple may have skipped the iPads during their September and November events but it looks like the company will finally freshen up its tablet line next year. Barclays analysts say that Apple will once again refresh their iPad series in 2017. In fact, three new tablets might come out of Apple's doors in a few months' time. One of which is a low-cost version of the iPad Pro 9.7.
Apple iPads 2017
According to GSM Arena, Apple will release refreshed versions of the iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 inch. There will also be a device similar to the iPad Air 2 but with no bezels. As for the lower-cost version of the iPad Pro 9.7, it was said that there is a good chance that this iPad will no longer be called "Pro". This, of course, is due to the fact that it would be low cost. Phone Arena says that this iPad will have entry-level specs.
Apple iPads 2017 Release
There is still no clarity as to when Apple will be releasing the new iPads. However, a March 2017 launch isn't exactly off the table considering the March release of the iPad Pro 9.7. Hopefully, Apple does release the new iPads as early as March so as to avoid making the iPad line a little too outdated. The affordable variant and the bezel-less variant are both welcome additions to Apple's iPad line.
This new report, of course, also triggers the rumor that the iPhone 8 2017 could also come with a bezel-less screen. This couldn't be impossible considering the rumors that the next iPhone will have glass exteriors. Needless to say, whatever Apple has planned for its devices next year, it's almost certain that they will hype the Apple fan base once again. It's safe to say that 2017 should be a busy year for Apple not only because of the iPad refresh but also for the anniversary iPhone release.
