Dummies of the upcoming iPhones surface online

With that said, we see this type of speculation year-after-year and Apple continually seems to manage to satisfy those in the market for a new iPhone.

The idea behind its relocation is to allow the new iPad Pro to be used in portrait mode when connected to a Smart Keyboard, which would negate the need to rotate it when unlocking the device with Face ID - which doesn't yet work in landscape mode. As for the other, 5.8-inch model, we aren't quite sure how that will look, but you can be sure it will look exactly like the current iPhone X, minus the OLED display and the dual-camera setup. Meanwhile, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is said to measure 280mm (H) x 215mm (W) x 6.4mm (T), which is handier than the current-generation model at 305.7 x 220.6 x 6.9 mm. The end result is that the upcoming iPad Pro will have smaller bezels all around; this unfortunately also results in the removal of the audio jack for the large iPad. By reducing the bezels Apple thinks that it will make the tablet's display look bigger.

The report also claims the next batch of iPad Pros are going to ditch the 3.5 mm headphone jack so everything has to go through the Lightning cable, which again wouldn't be a huge surprise and would follow what Apple has done with the iPhone.

Apple is expected to make drastic improvements to the iPad Pro this fall to introduce edge-to-edge screens and Face ID.

iPads 2018 will come with iPhone X's advanced face recognition tech, a previously leaked report revealed. However, the FaceID system will only be able to scan faces in the vertical mode - no support for landscape face detection.

This would be a very interesting move for Apple, as it would require a significant shift away from using the iPad Pro in landscape. The new Smart Connector, as depicted in the CAD model, looks like a lozenge-shaped indentation on the lower back of the iPad, near the Lightning port.
