iPad Pro latest leak shows off slim bezels, no Home Button

Apple’s next launch event is slated for October 30. The company is expected to unveil new iPad models along with an upgraded MacBook Air during the event. The highlight of the event will be the much-anticipated iPad Pro model which is said to feature Face ID subtle design upgrades. Now, a new leak has surfaced that seemingly reveals its design before official launch.

A render of an iPad has been discovered with an iOS code that appears to show off a prototype without a Home Button and much-smaller compared to the current model. The render also suggests that the Power/StandBy button will be housed on top while volume rockers are housed on the right.

The render falls in line with earlier leaks which also indicated that the upcoming iPad Pro model will feature a near bezel-free display just like new iPhones. It could also get USB-Type C connectivity, as well as support for both Portrait and Landscape modes.

Sources also suggest that Apple might stick with cheaper LCD screens as opposed to OLED panels found on the new iPhone XS range. Besides, the introduction of Face ID on the upcoming iPad Pro model would bring support for Animoji.

Apart from the new iPad Pro, Apple is also expected to announce a successor to the MacBook Air. Not to mention, carriers in the US have also indicated that eSIM support will start rolling out for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR starting October 30 alongside iOS 12.1.

We’ll bring you all the live updates from the event. Until then, keep checking back for more.
