Apple will today lift the lid on new iPad Pro, featuring a radical redesign that takes its cues from recent iPhones.
The revamped iPad Pro is expected to drop the home button in favour of a slim-bezel design that uses the same FaceTime facial scanning security tech found on Apple’s iPhone XS and iPhone XR.
Recent rumours suggest that users will be able to unlock the iPad Pro in both portrait and landscape mode, with a TrueDepth camera placed at the top of the device.
Apple is also expected to include a USB–C port on the tablet, a first for an iPad. This will allow it to further push its credentials as an alternative to a MacBook.
A new rear connector is also expected to be included and is designed to work with a rejigged range of accessories.
Word is that Apple will launch an updated Apple Pencil to work alongside the slate. Some reports have also suggested this could work with cheaper iPads and even the newest iPhones.
On top of the iPad Pro, it’s thought Apple might confirm a release date for its long delayed AirPower wireless charging mat, as well as unveil a noise–cancelling version of its AirPods wireless headphones.
