Apple recently sent out invites for its annual developer s conference which is scheduled to be held on June 5 in San Jose. As it prepares to reveal iOS 11, Mac OS X 10.13 and Watch OS 4 at the WWDC 2017 event, Apple is said to host another event as early as next month. This new Apple event will be mainly focused on the iPad Pro as the company will reportedly introduce a new lineup. Apple is said to introduce new 10.5-inch iPad Pro model, 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 models and a 7.9-inch iPad Pro model. It is also reported that at this event Apple would announce a 128GB storage variant of the iPhone SE. Apple is also expected to introduce red color variants for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. A new band for the Apple Watch is also expected at the event. Also Read - Beware! This new iOS bug breaks WiFi on iPhones: Here's a quick fix for it

The latest information comes from a Japanese website Mac Otakara, which further reports that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will start shipping in May, whereas the other models will ship by March itself. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has so far been the highlight amongst the expected iPad models, as it had been rumored to feature a bezel-less display, thereby ditching the Home button. Note here though, that the iPad Pro was earlier rumored to come in 10.9-inch and not 10.5-inch screen size. The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is expected to feature the same footprint as the present 9.7-inch iPad Pro, however the top bezel will remain for the FaceTime camera.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is also expected to be 7.5mm thick, which could be due to the possible addition of pressure-sensitive technology along with support for Apple Pencil. It is also reported that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will feature Apple s new A10X processor. ALSO READ: 10.5-inch Apple iPad to reportedly launch in early 2017; production set to kick off next month

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2 model could most likely feature a 12-megapixel rear camera and True Tone display akin to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The True Tone display uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors which adapts the color and intensity of the display and accordingly matches the light in the surrounding environment. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is also said to feature the A10X processor under its hood. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 model, on the other hand, is expected to be powered by the A9X chip, hinting at a lower pricing. DON’T MISS: Apple iPad Pro Review: The perfect iPad, almost

As for the 7.9-inch iPad Pro model, it is expected to feature a Smart Connector, True Tone display, and four speakers. For photography, the 7.9-inch iPad Pro model will sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing iSight camera with True Tone flash. The new iPad Pro lineup will also reportedly gain quad microphones.

Coming back to the other announcements, the report says event will witness introduction of a new 128GB model of the iPhone SE. This contradicts previous reports of Apple not refreshing the iPhone SE in early 2017. The red color variant was also previously reported to be for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. However, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus could be revamped with a new red color variant, if rumors do turn out to be true.
