Next year is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone on the market. It is believed that Apple will significantly revise the design of the company’s smartphones. According to reports, the company is working on a device with a glass body, a curved OLED display and a built-in screen scanner Touch ID and Home button. Apparently, all these “features” of the iPhone 8, we will be able to see much sooner than originally anticipated.
Informed sources report that the next generation iPad will get many of the main innovations of the iPhone in the spring of 2017. In the near future is unlikely Apple will equip the tablet OLED display, but a serious redesign, providing built-in screen home button is quite possible. The rejection of the physical keys will allow you to increase the size of the display while maintaining the dimensions of the body. It is expected that the new iPad will have a 10.9 inch screen, but retains the dimensions of the current 9.7-inch model.
If the information is true, Apple devices in 2017 will lose the Home button and will have a more narrow frame around the screen. So the company will be able to keep the same dimensions.
The new “Apple” tablet will be slightly thicker due to increased battery capacity. Thickness of 10.9-inch iPad will be 7.5 mm, the iPad Air. The 12.9-inch model is thicker by 3 mm than the current iPad Pro 12.9.
Despite the refusal from the Home button, front camera is still located above the display. This means that the top frame will remain the same or become slightly narrower.
