Apple is likely to give much more prominence to the screen when it launches its new iPad Pro in 2017. This is what the reliable Makotakara blog wanted to let us know.

Rumors indicate that the new 10.9-inch iPad Pro will be virtually the same as the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Except for one small detail: its screen will be bigger and its bezels narrower .

With smaller edges, the new iPad Pro will make the most of its size. The top bezel containing the FaceTime HD camera will remain the same size, while the side bezels will be reduced by a few millimeters . As for the lower bezel, it is speculated that will not have a Home button , therefore its size will also be much smaller.

This is a very bold design change, but perhaps necessary in view of the technological advances and innovation in the mobile device sector during this year 2016. This would be a historic change in “the iPad era” of Apple due to the removal of the Home button. Although there has already been a similar design change in the bezels of the original iPad and iPad 2.

Like the 10.9-inch iPad Pro, the iPhone 8 could also retire the physical Home Button to make way for an on-screen integrated Home Button.

However, this time Apple would not reduce the thickness of the iPad Pro again. This time the 10.9-inch iPad Pro will be 7.5 millimeters thick , identical to the thickness of the iPad Air. A clear disadvantage of the reduced size of the bezels and the implementation of the new touch button.

On the other hand, it is also mentioned that the 2017 12.9-inch iPad Pro will gain 3 millimeters in thickness , which suggests that it will also have narrower edges than current models.

There’s a lot of confusion about the inches of the new iPad Pro models that Apple will introduce next year. But all the rumours are that there will be three models, and the most logical would be to think that they will be 9.7 inches, 10.9 inches and 12.9 inches. What do you think?
