It’s the month of December and only a few days are left before the setting in of the new year. News and updates regarding the upcoming electronic gadgets have kept on coming in ceaselessly. And among the devices which are scheduled to come out sometime in the year 2017 we have got the iPad Pro 2 from the house of Apple. The iPad Pro received good reviews once it came out in the year 2015. And expectations are very high as we approach the arrival of the Apple iPad Pro 2 in the upcoming days.
When the Apple iPad Pro came out it took the whole world by a storm with its incredible features and efficiency. It has the capability of equaling the performances of a high-end laptop when connected with a keyboard and an Apple pencil although it works on an operating system of a smartphone. The iPad Pro is available in the market in two variants.
- it is expected that the iPad Pro 2 will perhaps be made available in three variants.
iPad Pro 2 Release Date
One of the most important things that the tech enthusiasts tend keep a close eye on is the probable release dates of an upcoming device. It has been more than six months that the mini version of the Apple iPad Pro with a screen size of 9.7 inch has been laid out. So it is high time that we should start expecting a new device in the iPad Pro series. And as it seems now the fans of the Apple won’t be disappointed to hear that the arrival of the device is not too far away.
Rumours are rife that Apple is going to announce the arrival of the device iPad Pro within a very short time. It is believed that the upcoming device is going to be unveiled in the month of March in 2017. In the current year there hasn’t been any release in the series of iPad Pro except that miniature version of the iPad Pro. The September event also saw Apple making no announcement regarding the arrival of the new tablet computer. The September 2017 event had the focus particularly on the Apple iPhone and the smartwatches. So it is quite obvious that Apple is going to make an announcement regarding the revelation of a new device in the iPad Pro series.
As the rumors have come in the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to be available in three versions. Apple has not provided us with any clue regarding the validity of this fact but the speculations do suggest that there will be a third version of the Apple iPad Pro 2. The 12.9-inch version along with the 9.7-inch one will come out probably in the month of March as we have previously mentioned. But it is not quite sure when the third variant with a 10.5-inch screen is going to come out. We expect that this new device might be announced later on, probably during the September event of the company.
- iPad Pro 2 version 1 : 12.9 inch
- iPad Pro 2 version 2: 10.5 inch
- iPad Pro 2 version 3: 9.7 inch
Also the fact that the year 2017 is going to be the tenth anniversary year of the Cupertino-based brand we can expect something special from Apple. So possibilities are there that apple might break the previous trends and announce the devices at a time when they generally do not hold any event. But it seems pretty sure that Apple will be releasing the two prevalent versions of the device within the first quarter of the year. It has been already more than a year since the time iPad Pro first made its appearance. So that makes it all the more obvious that the Apple iPad Pro 2 will be launched in the March 2017 event of the company.
Apple iPad Pro 2 Concept Design
Apple has been renowned for all the upgraded models of the electronic gadgets that they bring out in the market. And it is an understatement that the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to be one of the outstanding devices among those that are scheduled to come out in the year 2017.
Reports have suggested that the device is going to make its arrival with a unibody metal chassis which is going to be a real upgrade as far as the design of the upcoming device is concerned. This metal body which is expected to be made out of 7000-series Aluminium, is definitely going to make the device durable and protect from getting damaged too easily. The Apple iPad Mini 5 is also expected to be made out of the same metal body which makes it all the more probable that the upcoming device is also goping to feature the same kind of metal body. Also this new design is going to make the device look very much like the Macbook lid and bear a little resemblance with the previous version of the device.
Alongside this one of the most attractive section of the concept design of the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to be the Apple pencils. The Apple pencil has always been a fan favourite for such an incredible accessory. And it is reported that the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to get an innovated Apple Pencil to make things look even more attractive. The Apple pencils will be available in three different colours – White, black and rose gold.
As it sounds the upcoming Apple iPad Pro 2 is definitely going to be one of the better looking tablets that are scheduled to be coming out with the onset of the year 2017. However, all these are in a state of speculation and it remains to be seen whether these features actually turn out to be true.
iPad pro 2 features
The first thing that comes to our mind whenever a new device comes up is the probable features of that device. And rumours have been aplenty as far as the features of the Apple iPad Pro 2 are concerned. The best part about that is the fact that all the rumours promise a better tablet than the one which is already available in the market. So let’s just have a glimpse of what the features of the iPad Pro 2 is going to be.
There has been a great bit of confusion regarding what the probable screen dimension of the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to be. There have been reports suggesting that the upcoming device is going to be available in three different variants as far as the screen dimension is concerned. There will be a 12.9-inch version for sure and there are lots of ideas coming up regarding what the dimension of the other two variants is going to be. Few have suggested that the Apple iPad Pro 2 will retain the 9.7-inch variant. And along with that Apple will come up with a third variant which will have a display screen of 10.7-inch. There are also rumours that have come with the proposition that the third variant of the Apple iPad Pro will have a 7.9-inch smaller display screen which will actually be an upgraded version of the Apple iPad Pro Mini 5 but the possibilities of such a variant has not reveived too much of a backing to turn out to be true. Also, there have been talks that the third variant which is expected to arrive later on will be sporting a 10.9-inch display. So fans of Apple will be eager to know what the actual screen size of the device is going to be when it makes its appearance on the market within the third quarter of the year 2017.
The Apple iPad Pro 2 is expected to undergo an upgradation as far as the display resolution of the screen is concerned. With most of the latest upcoming devices coming with an ability to support the 4K display, it won’t a surprise at all if the apple iPad Pro 2 comes with a display support for the 4K resolution. The device will also come with a True Tone display technology embedded on it. The device is expected to be featuring a flexible AMOLED display as one of its features.
Under the hood, the device will definitely come with a powerful processing unit. And it seems that the Apple A10 Fusion processor will perhaps be the one to come with this upcoming device. This new processor is bound to make the device more efficient than its predecessor besides the fact that it will reduce the power consumption as well. The device is expected to be coming with the iOS 10.3 operating system alongside a 2.6 GHz dual-core CPU. The device is set to sport a PowerVR Series 7 12-core graphics card as its GPU.
The 12.9-inch variant of the Apple iPad Pro 2 is set to sport a 4 GB RAM. Also the 9.7-inch variant will perhaps come with the same LPDDR4 4 GB RAM. The third variant which is not yet known properly if turns out with a 7.9-inch display screen might feature a 3 GB RAM. The Apple iPad Pro 2 will perhaps come in three variants as far as the internal memory of the device is concerned. Like the previous model it will have a 32 GB model, a 128 GB variant and a 256 GB variant. If the third variant of the tablet with a smaller screen dimension at all comes out, it will perhaps have an additional variant of 64 GB internal memory.
Ipad Pro 2 Camera
Apple has been popular among its fans due to its incredible camera features. And the iPad Pro 2 is surely not going to be an exception. It is expected that the Apple iPad Pro is going to come with a 12-megapixel rear camera while the selfie shooter is expected to be of 8 megapixels. The users of the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to support a 4K video recording facility. Along with the 12-megapixel sensor the camera is going to be equipped with an f/2.0 aperture and Phase Detection Autofocus technology. The Apple iPad Pro 2 will be backed up by a powerful battery although the extremity of the power storage capability is definitely going to come down.
In the department of the additional features we are going to have the Bluetooth 5.0 which has been rolled out very recently. Although we are yet to see any smartphone or tablet featuring this connectivity technology, a number of devices are expected to be released in 2017 with the Bluetooth 5.0 installed in it. A number of sensors will also feature in the upcoming device which includes some of the popular technologies. Fingerprint is definitely going to be one of the most important one along with the Accelerometer, Gyro, Compass and Barometer.
Apple iPad Pro 2 Wishlist
Fans are expecting a lot as they slowly approach the release of the Apple iPad Pro 2 tablet computer. And there are quite a number of things which the fans of Apple would like to see coming with the arrival of the new device. One of those additional devices is definitely going to be the 3D Touch technology. The 3D Touch technology will perhaps feature in the Apple iPad Mini 5 and it is definitely one of the developed technologies which we would love to see in the upcoming high-end tablet computer from the Cupertino based brand.
Also we would like to see a better battery back-up in the upcoming device. Although the Apple iPAd Pro 2 is reported to be coming with a powerful battery but its resolution and the other features consumes a lot of power. So we want Apple to enhance the battery backup of the device. Along with that the consumers of the Apple devices would really appreciate the arrival of a 64-GB model which will also reduce the price gap between the 32 GB model and the 128 GB variant of the Apple iPad Pro 2. The inclusion of two different types of keyboard besides the USB Type-C port and the Secondary Display option will also be a welcome change for the consumers.
When it comes to the Apple pencil, the Apple Pencil has been highly praised for its smoothness in functionality and ease of use. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for any improvement. According to the maker themselves, the Pencil only last for about 12 hours of writing which is not all that great, so it’d be incredible if they were to improve Apple Pencil on this front. From what we have seen, even though the fast charging technology comes immensely handy, the piece of equipment still falls short when we are on the go and when we can’t sketch.
There are of course several rumors as to how the new Apple Pencil might be designed. Some have interestingly speculated that the Pencil will support a magnetic attachment that is to say the pencil will have the ability to attach to the upcoming iPad Pro using a magnet. Other have claimed that there’ll be clips, small clips similar to the ones found in a traditional pen, which would be great because the clip will enable you to attach the Pencil to the pocket. There is an Apple patent similar to the magnetic attachment but there’s evidence of a clip coming with the Apple Pencil for iPad Pro
Apple iPad Pro 2 Price
The Apple tablets have got a higher than many of its competitors but that’s quite obvious because of the incredible features that the device sports. The 32 GB Wi-Fi variant of the Apple iPad Pro with a 12.9-inch screen came out with a price tag of $799 which is the lowest one. The highest priced variant having a 12.9-inch screen and 256 GB internal memory came out with a $1229 price tag. So we can expect that there is definitely going to be a price hike. And we can expect that the lowest variant of the Apple iPad Pro 2 is going to be priced at $899 while the one with the highest configurations will be priced at $1400.
It is an understatement that the iPad Pro 2 is going to be one of the best tablets that are going to come out in the year 2017. The Apple iPad Pro did grab the attention of a number of consumers who have got hold of one since its release way back in 2015. So the upcmoming Apple device is definitely not going to be an exception in that front. And all eyes will hence be on the release of the device which is expected to be taking place within a few months after the setting in of the new year. tll then we simply have to keep our fingers crossed and wait for the day to arrive. It will definitely be an agonizing wait for the Apple iPad Pro 2 promises a number of incredible technologies which will make it one of the eye-catching ones, if not the most sought-after device in the year 2017.
