Updated iPad Pro to ditch home button

Apple is also supposedly planning to reduce the size of the top and side buttons of the new iPad as well. According to an inside industry source, Apple will remove the Home button and may replace it with either a virtual one or some gestures, Business Insider reported. Of course, this is just a rumor and no information is now confirmed by Apple, so take this with a grain of salt. The larger 10.5-inch model is expected to offer the same A10X chip found in Apple's largest 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which makes sense. But looks like the first Apple iOS device without the home button will not be the iPhone 8 but the new iPad that will launch in the early 2017.

A 10.5-inch model, whether it's a Pro or standard iPad, would bridge the size gap.

While we have new information on what the design of the next iPad may bring, we're still not sure on what exactly the specs will be.

To make room for the bigger display, Apple will supposedly use a bezel-less design.

Additionally, reports reveal that a tablet measuring 10.5 inches will be debuting next year, with production slated to commence in December. Instead, the company would add the home button's function under the display. Now, Apple is done playing losing market share it the tablet wars and it is counting on its next iPad to change the narrative.

The new Amazon Fire tablet displayed at a media event introducing the new Amazon products in San Francisco, California, Sept. 16, 2015.

The iPad is expected to have a thinner bezel screen and will be thicker.

Previous rumors also claim the next iPad will have a borderless design, in which the front surface would consist mostly of the display.
