New 10.5-inch iPad And Touchscreen Siri Speaker To Unveil At WWDC, Details Inside
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities, has released the highlights for WWDC 2017 with the outline of his expectations. Aside from the typical previews of the next versions of Apple's iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS, he also predicts that fans will see several fresh announcements. Kuo said that there is a big possibility that a new 10.5-inch iPad and a touchscreen Siri speaker will be announced at the event.
New 10.5-inch iPad To Unveil At WWDC
Kuo's research notes often provide a solid and reliable look at Apple's future plans but take note that he is not always correct. According to him, there is "greater than 70 percent chance" that a new Apple iPad Pro will debut at WWDC 2017. The newly designed device will be 10.5-inch and will have a similar form factor like the existing 9.7-inch iPad model.
As Forbes reported, the most anticipated iPad will feature a larger display than the exciting iPad, thanks to its narrow bezels design. This integration should improve the experience of the user and help gain traction or friction in the corporate, as well as commercial sectors. This feature could also provide a wider monitor scene that most users are complaining about the smaller version.
Apple usually updates the processor when the firm does a new iPad or even a redesign, so it is possible to see a variant of the A10 processor seen in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The display resolution of the larger iPad will also increase, that is necessary in order to maintain the same pixels per inch (PPI). As of now, pricing is still unknown but it could cut into where the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro is and knocking the current iPad Pro down to a lower pricing line.
Touchscreen Siri Speaker To Unveil At WWDC
According to The Verge, Kuo reemphasized his belief that there is a large percentage of chance that Apple will use the event to launch its rumored touchscreen Siri Speaker. If it's true, the device will come with a touch panel display, which is designed to battle with Amazon’s Echo Show.
