According to reports, Apple will be releasing their brand new iPad Pro 2 in 2017 and will be equipped by the Cupertino company with laptop hardware, like the A10x chip, bigger RAM and will be water-resistant.
A media outlet poll has shown that iPad users do not purchase new tablets on a yearly basis. Just 6% of the poll respondents decide to buy a new iPad when it’s released every year while the rest of them do not find it necessary to switch to a new one.
It will be interesting to see if this year things will change as Apple is preparing a major improvement in their iPad Pro line of tablets. It is even considered that the iPad Pro 2 will be replacing the MacBook Air since the technical specifications of the new tablet will be so powerful.
As far as specifications are concerned, iPad Pro 2 will be equipped to handle process-intensive tasks and it has been speculated that it will be replacing hybrid tablets such as the Surface Book and the Lenovo Yoga on the scene.
What we know so far is that the iPad Pro 2 will have a Touch Bar feature, super-thin bezels, an updated Apple Pencil with more integrated apps and an overall focus on making the tablet more accessible for individuals that require a faster rate in their task completion.
Although there are speculations that the new iPad will have bigger ram, this could potentially not be the case as the current iPad Pro already has 4 GB of RAM and equipping the new iPad Pro 2 will most likely be equipped with the same RAM and bigger internal memory.
We do not yet have an official launch date for the iPad Pro 2 but it’s expected that the tablets may be released in May or June of 2017.
