What do you think the next iPad Pro models will feature?
With the recent release of the 2018 iPad Pro’s it’s got me thinking a little about what next year’s models might feature.
We just got USB-C, near bezelless design along with a magnetically charged Apple Pencil. Right now most people are complaining about price, lack of difference between the 2nd gen Pros and structural integrity to name the most prevalent ones.
Knowing Apple and based on my own observations they are likely to go along the lines of what they did with the iPhone 6 and 6s. I am excluding newer IOS revisions because those are fairly iPhone and iPad related. I am sure a lot of people would love the option of MacOS or at least a lite-version to run on the iPad, but I still don’t quite see that with Tim Cook in charge. Maybe the next Apple CEO will venture into that territory.
1) I believe apple will add some weight to increase structural integrity first of all. I can’t imagine Tim Cook releasing future iPads/Pros without addressing this issue.
2) Screen resolution may increase or some new feature regarding the screen will be added. Maybe not screen resolution per say since Apple tends to stick with a good resolution for a few generations sometimes, but features I can see similar to pro-motion from revealed in the 2nd generation Pro models back in 2017.
3) New standard of RAM. One thing I saw in the new pro models was more RAM when purchasing the higher end models. People seem to really be liking the faster CPU, but some are disappointed that not all 2018 Pro’s have 6GB RAM. From a financial perspective I can see 6gb becoming across the board for the pro models.
Wish lists, but possibilities:
A) More features around the USB-C port. The new iPad Pro can be hooked up to a monitor and I think charge other devices. I don’t see why they wouldn’t eventually add a first party option for storage.
B) Screen resolution and possibly going AMOLED (pretty unlikely) at least for the pro models.
These are just some thoughts but would love to hear from other people.
