Now, one year after the iPad 2018 presentation, rumors about the possible release of the new version are starting to intensify, which should maintain the current design according to the latest rumors.
No all-screen on the entry level band of the iPad, but it should increase the size of the display, going from the current 9.7 ″ to 10.2 ″, with a transformation similar to the one happened with iPad Pro 10.5 ″, with a decrease edges so as to slightly widen the display.
Beyond the probable decrease of the edge there would seem to be no other disruption in the design, which should remain substantially the same, with the presence of the home button with Touch ID and the presence of the headphone jack, now eliminated from the iPhone range and from the new iPad line Pro.
There is no news on Apple Pencil, it is likely that if we do not see a change of design it is almost difficult to get support for the new Pencil, due to the lack of the magnet needed for induction charging, present on the new iPad Pro on one side of the same, side that is just flat to allow the pencil to remain connected during the charge.
According to the latest rumors, Apple is expected to hold an event on March 25th where services will be mainly discussed, but it is possible that the new iPad model will arrive on that date, along with the new generation of iPad Mini, which, let’s remember, is not updated since September 2015.
