Rumors have it that the Apple iPad Pro 2 is one of the widely anticipated tablets of 2017. Although the Cupertino-based giant has not yet announced anything about the next gen tablet. According to a source, there are high chances that the iPad Pro 2 will get unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which is set to take place sometime in June 2017.

Also, it is believed that the WWDC stage would be perfect for the tech giant to take the wraps off the long-awaited iPad Pro 2 before the professional audience of the developer's conference. The Cupertino-based iPhone maker is also believed to announce the upcoming iteration of its mobile operating system, dubbed as the iOS 11, during the same event.

It is expected that the larger 12.9-inch iPad will have 0.3mm in thickness thanks to a slimmed-down bezel. In other design news, Apple is allegedly planning a sequel to the Apple Pencil, a more updated, so-called Apple Pencil 2. More so, Apple announced a dual-camera configuration on the iPhone 7 Plus, which proved very popular amongst reviewers. If Apple is said working on a new premium iPad, it follows that the tablet would also get the same upgrade. Interestingly, Apple fans expect to see the usual features like a 3D Touch display and Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

There's also a speculation that Apple might finally ditch the Home button. Furthermore, Apple will introduce a new A10X chip which is reported to power the iPad Pro 2. Apple fans may also see wireless charging and more likely the upcoming device will run iOS 11, though That OS hasn't been officially announced yet, however, Apple will probably confirm that next at Apple's annual WWDC.
