Apple has been rumored to not only release an anniversary iPhone this year, but to likewise refresh its iPad tablet line. It was said that since the 12.9 inch iPad Pro model is already more than a year old, now may be the perfect year for it to get a successor. The iPad Pro 9.7 is also turning one-year old in March, so if Apple doesn't get an iPad refresh within this year, its tablet series will be outdated pretty soon. Fortunately though, rumor has it that Apple may actually release the iPad Pro 2 in the coming weeks or months.
Apple iPad Pro 2 Rumors
According to Inquisitr, there have been a report that mentions about a March release for the iPad Pro 2. This actually makes sense as March isn't exactly an unusual release month for an Apple hardware. Take note that the company released the iPad Pro 9.7 and the iPhone SE at the said month.
Additionally, the first-gen iPad Pro is reportedly already low on stocks, as per Daily Star. This usually means that a new model is about to be released. As per the source, countries including US, Canada, Australia, UK and more are all having problems getting the iPad Pro 12.9 instantly. Apparently, notifications have been sent to buyers saying that the iPad model would be delivered in no less than two weeks. This means that stocks are low for the iPad Pro and this could be caused by the upcoming new model.
Apple iPad Pro Expectations
There are rumors saying that the iPad Pro 2 will come with a new design. Rumor has it that the said device will have borderless frame, embedded Touch ID sensor and a virtual home button. The iPad Pro 2 is generally expected to share some qualities that the rumored iPhone 8 has. There are even talks about the tablet getting some of the iPhones' distinct features. It was said that the iPad Pro 2 could boast of a dual lens cam system just like the iPhone 7 Plus, although of course, this rumor should be taken lightly considering that photography hasn't really been a primary focus for most tablets. It's worth mentioning though that the iPad Pro 9.7 had a camera on par with the iPhone 6S, so the above rumor isn't exactly impossible.
