Apple May Not Include Headphone Jack in iPad Pro 2018 Lineup

That's a pretty bold claim since the iPad Pro isn't exactly the lightest iPad model there is, and tethering it vertically to a keyboard doesn't seem all that ergonomic. The end result is that the upcoming iPad Pro will have smaller bezels all around; this unfortunately also results in the removal of the audio jack for the large iPad.

Macotakara also suggests that the iPad Pro will get Face ID features, something that's been rumored since a year ago, and which was seemingly confirmed in a recent iOS 12 beta. As for the 12.9-inch variant, it could go from 305.7 x 220.6 x 6.9mm in dimensions to 280 x 215 x 6.4mm. The slimmer bezels at the top and bottom are good enough to surround the Face ID area at the top and the display controller at the bottom. This means that the upcoming devices will will come with a lightning adapter just like the new range of iPhones.

All signs point to Apple releasing three new iPhones this fall.

There have also been other reports stating that Apple may be adding another model to the iPad Pro lineup, one with an 11-inch display, and also a newer keyboard.

The third phone Apple is rumored to launch this year, the 5.8-inch iPhone, isn't shown, but it's likely to be more or less identical to the current iPhone X.

Many reports say that Apple will release three handsets later this summer, including two OLED versions and an iPhone X successor packing an LCD screen.

These adjustments won't include any changes to the display sizes, meaning they would allow the same screen dimensions to fit on a smaller sized device, especially in the case of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

As noted, the new iPhones will borrow a lot of features from the iPhone X. One such feature is the Face ID technology.

The site also reports that a "diamond-cut" design will feature front and back, similar to the iPhone SE.

Another feature that disappears due to the reduced bezels is the Home button, but we should expect Face ID to be present instead.

The dual-lens cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, and X provide 2x optical zoom as well as a "Portrait" mode that simulates blurred backgrounds created by professional lenses.
