Apple reportedly begins prepping new iPad Pro models

Apple continues to hold court amidst the ruins of the tablet industry, given that the Cupertino firm now holds only a few true competitors – and now the company is reportedly prepping new variants of its iPad Pro line that will continue to bring additional features over from its iPhone lineup.

As part of that move, the company plans to more closely align its iPad Pro range with the newly-minted iPhone Pro. Namely, the firm’s new iPad Pro lineup will apparently each arrive with a multi-camera setup constituted by a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel telephoto unit, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens. Apparently, the latter unit may ultimately be swapped out in place of a Time of Flight sensor for improved augmented reality smarts.

DigiTimes reports that the iPad Pro will arrive in two guises – an 11″ and 12.9″ model will grace store shelves, and will run on Apple’s A13X Bionic chipset. While there’s no word as to whether the devices will support TouchID as well as FaceID, both units are alleged to arrive with as much as 4GB of RAM and with variants accommodating 64GB to 1TB of internal storage. Interestingly, both models are rumoured to arrive with glass rear panels in tow, meaning that they could feasibly be charged wirelessly.

Apple is expected to make a slew of hardware announcements as soon as March this year, where the company will apparently not only show off a second-generation iPhone SE (called the iPhone 9) but would further unveil an entirely new product – a wireless tracking beacon dubbed the AirTag.
