We'd heard before that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 was already in production, and some optimistic estimates said it could land as soon as April.

According to a KGI report back in August past year, the iPad Pro 10.5 inch release date was slated alongside the new low-priced 9.7 inch iPad.

What features will the 10.5in iPad have?

A new edge-less iPad may win some of that back, especially if Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 follow-up is as uninspiring as rumoured.

Apple A10X Processor: The new tablet is expected to have an Apple A10X processor, which is much more powerful than the A9 one on the iPad.

Rumors have it that the form factor of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will be same as that of 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The snapshot carries a vital clue on when the heavily rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro would be launching.

Apple had previously been rumored to drop the iconic home button, a feature of the iPhone ever since Steve Jobs unveiled the first handset in 2007. The ipad pro has even competed with professional drawing tablets such as the cintiq by wacom (even forcing them to upgrade their own tablets to get rid of a major parallax flaw in them something the ipad pro didn't have). However, rumors suggest a May launch for the tablets.

Urban Armor Gear manufactures cases for the iPad and had a special UAG Metropolis Folio case listed for the tablet in three color combinations. The yet to be announced tablet is rumored to have the thinnest bezels ever seen on an iPad, as all four edges of the screen extend almost to the four edges of the slate.

The June date deserves special attention due to Apple hosting its World Wide Developers Conference from June 5-9 in San Jose, raising the possibility of the tablet being announced at the event.

Apple usually reserves WWDC for software announcements, although the company is expected to unveil a Siri-powered smart speaker. It's possible, but until then we'll have to wait and see what's in store for us.
