The trend should clearly be to borderless screens next year. Like Samsung, Apple plans to launch its first devices of the genre in 2017, according to rumors. Indeed, it has been whispering for some time that the next iPhone and iPad Pro will both lose their borders and their “Home” buttons.
On Monday, November 28, Macotakara added his stone to the building. The Japanese site has confirmed previous corridor noises and claimed that the new iPad Pro would be released in March, well before the next Apple smartphone. The tablet could therefore inaugurate the screens without borders of the mark.
Barclays analysts say the device will have a 10.9-inch screen, but it is embedded in the same chassis as the old 9.7-inch model. Thanks to the reduction of the edges. The “Home” button would be deleted and replaced with a virtual button.
On the other hand, the thickness of the tablet should increase to 7.5mm in order to retain the same battery capacity as the old models. Also note that contrary to previous rumors, Macotakara says that the next 12.9-inch version of the next iPad will also benefit from these innovations.
