Among the new features, the stylus is expected to come with include a magnetic attachment that will allow it to cling to the tablet while an additional clip will allow it to be placed in the pocket similar to conventional pens. The smaller and larger versions of the trio are differentiated enough in form factor, but it's hard to imagine consumers complaining that their 9.7-inch iPad would be so much more useful if only the diagonal measurement was 0.8 inches larger. However, the demands on a tablet like the iPad Pro, and now the iPad Pro 2 have increased. The latest speculation regarding Apple's upcoming iPad range has strongly suggested that the tech giant could be set to reinvent its iPad launch strategy to reach the pinnacle of the tablet market.

With the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro getting refreshed and two new iPad variants being introduced, Apple might very well spark a new wave of interest in tablet devices.

The middle model will basically be a follow up to the 9.7 inch iPad Air 2. That means accessories like the Smart Keyboard can be used with 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

Digital Trends had claimed that the company will unveil launch a new 9.7-inch low-priced iPad Pro. Initially, Apple was said to launch new iPads at an event in March. Several reports suggest there might be a special iPad launch in Apple HQ on April 4, 2017. A new report indicates that Apple is about to unveil four new iPad models, and all of them will get the "Pro" moniker, even the brand new iPad mini.

Following our report, some Japanese analysts have predicted that a second-generation 9.7-inch iPad Pro will be announced next week, according to Japanese blog Mac Otakara. For photography, the 7.9-inch iPad Pro model could sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing iSight camera with True Tone flash.


A report about a new iPad Pro first appeared previous year from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In the meantime, the iPad mini 5 or iPad Pro mini or iPad Pro 3 is expected to arrive with new features such as IP68 protection and Apple's 3D Touch technology.

The Logitech Create case also has a holder for the Apple Pencil, built-in iOS shortcuts, and a sturdy cover, to keep your iPad safe.
