What you need to know
- CAD designs have revealed the design of the new upcoming iPad Pro.
- Specifically, they show the next 11-inch iPad Pro will look almost exactly the same as previous models.
- A report states the form factor will be shorter by just a few millimeters.
New CAD designs have supposedly revealed the design of Apple's next iPad Pro, and it looks awfully familiar.
There are rumors that Apple plans to announce two new iPad Pro models in both 11 and 12.9-inch variations, however, this latest leak seems to confirm that this will be an internal upgrade rather than any kind of design change. From the report:
As the report notes it's clear from these renders (if they're real) that the next generation of iPad Pro will likely look almost identical to the current version. One small difference is that the speaker grille on the bottom of the device appears to be smaller.
A recent report stated Apple would release the two new versions of iPad Pro in March, and it is expected they will feature all-new mini-LED displays for improved contrast and quality.
