Apple's 9.7-inch 'iPad Pro 2' Could Launch by March 31st

One of these would be the 9.7 inch iPad that might replace the iPad Air 2 as well as two iPad Pros. However, Apple normally makes its invitation 10 days prior to an event, hence, the iPad Pro 2 might be revealed on a press release rather than being part of any upcoming event in the following days. Apple now doesn't have a scheduled event for that date, so a press release will likely be issued to deliver the news. On the other hand, the low-priced 9.7-inch iPad Pro might very well be the device that could put Apple on them the map for a very wide demographic.

The updated 9.7 inch iPad Pro is rumored to come with the new Apple A10X processor and also more RAM than the current model. According to Mac World, Apple will announce new products in late March 2017, and the most likely dates are between 20 and 24 March. That means accessories like the Smart Keyboard can be used with 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

Earlier this week, MacRumors also reported that Apple could unveil a slew of new devices next week, citing "reliable supply chain analysts".

A report about a new iPad Pro first appeared past year from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Apart from a few cosmetic changes ranging from reducing the thickness and slightly reducing the bezels, there is not an astronomical amount of differences between the iPad Pro family and previous iPad models.

If we are to believe the Apple analysts, the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2017 model features a design similar to its predecessor.

The updated 12.9-inch iPad Pro is said to feature a 12-megapixel rear camera and True Tone display like the current 9.7-inch model, using advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to automatically adapt the color and intensity of the display to match the light in the surrounding environment. With Apple Park scheduled to inaugurate in April this year, same Apple blog suggests that the tech firm will launch its new iPad lineup in the 1,000-seat Steve Jobs Theatre which is situated on the new Apple Park campus known as 'Spaceship'. Apart from these three devices, however, rumors are also high that Apple is preparing to unveil a 9.7-inch budget iPad that would be targeted at the entry-level market. The question is whether Apple will follow its pattern of updating the iPads to an A10X, or simply jump ahead to the A11X.

"You end up with a unit that's the same physical size as the 9.7 inch", Alexander said.
