Right now, a brand new icon discovered inside iOS affords a extra detailed view of the 2018 iPad Professional, which we count on to be introduced during the Tuesday event in Brooklyn. This icon exhibits an iPad with rounded corners, no House button and no notch. An attention-grabbing facet of this icon is how massive the bezels look when in comparison with the latest iPhones.
This might be as a result of how the icon is constructed, typically thicker traces are required for it to be “readable” at smaller sizes. An analogous impact occurred with the iPhone X glyph discovered final yr.
One other attention-grabbing element is that the sleep/wake button continues to be on the prime, whereas new iPhone fashions function a aspect button that’s used to invoke Siri, take screenshots and shut down the system with button combos. The presence of a sleep/wake button as an alternative of a aspect button might be only a design determination for the brand new iPad. Alternatively, it’s potential the 2018 iPad Professional finally ends up that includes a aspect button as this may be an unfinished asset.
Particulars apart, it’s clear that we’re going to see a big redesign of the iPad Pro this Tuesday. Keep tuned to 9to5Mac as we’ll have full protection of all the things Apple pronounces.
