Apple to launch three iPads in March, including one with a 10.9-inch bezel-less display: Report

The year 2017 looks promising as we’re likely to see both, a bezel-less iPhone and iPad.

Apple will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of iPhone next year, and it is reportedly planning to launch the next iPhone in three sizes 4.7-inch, 5-inch and 5.5-inch. However, the next iPhones may not be the only star products as Apple also seems to be gearing up to launch as many as three iPads in March next year.

Citing Barclays analysts, Apple Insider reports that the next year s iPad lineup will include a 9.7-inch and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro model, along with a bezel-less 10.9-inch iPad. All of these iPads will be launched at Apple s March 2017 event. The report also states that the new 10.9-inch iPad will come in the same enclosure as the existing 9.7-inch iPad Pro, but will omit the side bezels. Barclays also claim that despite carrying the pro nomenclature, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro will be a low-cost iPad, and not a premium model. This also means that we may not see the refreshed iPad mini model, at least in early 2017. Also Read - Apple CEO Tim Cook claims iOS is more secure than Android

While details about the specifications and features of the upcoming iPad lineup are unknown, a recent report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo did hint at some changes. He mentioned that the next-gen iPads will be powered by Apple s A10X chipsets made by TSMC and built on 10nm fabrication process. He had also mentioned about revolutionary changes to the iPad s design in 2018, but with the current report of iPad with bezel-less display, it seems like Apple may not wait for another year.

Based on the reports that we have come across, Apple is likely to ditch the iPhone 7s next year, and would directly release the iPhone 8. Rumors also state that it will come with an edge-to-edge AMOLED display, while eliminating the home button (with Touch ID fingerprint sensor) altogether. With Apple launching the bezel-less iPad in early 2017, it would also offer a sneak peek at how Apple s iPhone 8 with edge-to-edge display would look like.

Talking about the next-gen iPhone, we recently came across mockups made by Latvian graphic designer and YouTuber Veniamin Geskin, offering us a glimpse at how the iPhone 8 may look like. Apple is expected to give the required resolution bump to the next-gen iPhones with the 4.7-inch model sporting a full HD panel, whereas the 5.5-inch model finally switching to a QHD (2K) display, just like its competitors. However, details about the display resolution of the 5-inch iPhone aren t known yet. ALSO READ: Apple patents new technology that will find your lost iPhone even when switched off

The new iPhones may also boast a glass back made by Lens Technology and Biel Crystal Manufactory, both factories based in China. The iPhone 4s released back in 2011 was the last Apple device to come with a glass back, after which the company opted for metal housing. The new iPhones may also come with long-distance charging technology that will allow users to charge the iPhone from a distance of up to 15 meters. Right now, all these are rumors and leaked reports based on supply chain, but we will have to wait until Apple officially announces these products to see what all features finally make to the devices.
