THE RUMOURED IPADS 

Apple will be releasing three new models this year – a 7.9-, 9.7- and 10.1 inch model.  

All three of the new iPad Pro models are expected to be equipped with quad microphones. 

And surprisingly, they will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack unlike the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets that were unveiled last year. 

The existing 12.9-inch iPad Pro will also be getting the True Tone display, which is currently limited to the current 9.7-inch model.

In October, reports suggested that Apple would be launching its three new iPad devices in March 2017.

Apple will be releasing 7.9-, 9.7- and 10.1-inch models. 

But rumours from an unnamed source speaking to DigiTimes, suggest that these new products are ‘still in planning.’ 

All three of the new iPad Pro models are expected to be equipped with quad microphones and will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack, reports Japanese tech site Mac Otakara. 

Apple controversially dropped the traditional headphone port from its new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets which it unveiled last year.

‘Mac Otakara does not have a perfect track record with Apple rumors, but its sources have proven accurate on multiple occasions in the past’ said Mac Rumours.

The Japanese site was the first to correctly report on Apple dropping the 3.5mm headphone port from its latest handsets and introducing the new jet back colour, says Mac Rumours.

The site also reports that the existing 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be getting the True Tone display, which is currently limited to the 9.7-inch model.

The larger iPad model is also expected to gain the 12-megapixel rear camera and True Tone flash from the smaller model.  

Apple first unveiled the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in September 2015, making it the firm’s biggest tablet to date.

The Apple Pencil digital stylus was also introduced at the same time, enabling people to draw on the tablet more easily. 

The smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro was then introduced in March.

Apple has been contacted for comment concerning the delay of the launch of the trio of new iPads, but is yet to respond.
