Apple plans to launch new "all screen" high-end iPad similar to iPhone X in 2018

Apple plans to launch new "all screen" high-end iPad similar to iPhone X in 2018

Apple is working on a completely redesigned high-end new iPad that will have an "all screen" display with thinner bezels and Face ID like the iPhone X. The new iPad, however, is not likely to use an OLED display like the iPhone X, and will instead stick with a traditional LCD screen. The information comes from inside sources speaking for Bloomberg, which has a nearly spotless track record with Apple rumors.

This new iPad is expected to launch later in 2018. The iPad Pro 10.5" was released in June 2017, while the new model is expected to launch a bit more than a year after the original.


Apple is allegedly working on a few different models, with at least one new model of this high-end new iPad having a screen roughly the size of the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

The new 2018 iPad model is also expected to have an improved Apple Pencil stylus and better software for taking notes and drawing.

The iPad business used to be a huge profit driver for Apple, but revenue has fallen as overall tablet sales have declined in the past few years. Still, the iPad has brought Apple $4.8 billion of revenue in the past quarter alone.

Apple allegedly still sees the iPad as the future of mainstream computing and continues investment in the series. Lastly, it brought iOS 11 bringing the Mac-style Dock to the platform and much better multitasking capabilities.

I don't think you know what the term high-end means.

That has to be the most retarded thought process I've heard today.

Definitely the most mind numbingly stupid thought process!

If the screen doesn't crack when dropped than the screen is high-end, which means the phone is likely high-end. That has to be the most mind-numbingly stupid insult!

I don' think I've ever read anything as stupid as your comment firebird820 (well the username is rather ridiculous in it self, but I won't even start on that yet). Every 'high end' phone is made of glass these days. Samsung's high end phones - glass. iPhone (the most premium and high end phone of all) - glass. The two biggest manufacturers of phones seem to disagree with you. So I'm going to take the side of the phone manufactures who make these high end phones out of glass and not some little pubescent kid sat behind a keyboard dealing with mummy issues and acne!! Go to sleep kiddo, your comments are indeed mind numbingly stupid and retarded!

What I fail to understand is why, instead of providing me with facts to back up and prove your claim, you resort to insulting me with insults most commonly used by high schoolers like myself. In regards to your comment about my username, my four-year-old brother came up with it, and it made him happy when I produced it as my username. Therefore, I would feel sad and guilty if I changed it. You say that the iPhone is the most premium and high-end phone of all, yet you clearly fail to consider all the factors. When it comes to speed, yes. The iPhone is faster than my Note8. I have both the iPhone X and the Note8, and I can say in all honesty the iPhone outperforms my phone. However, it's not all about speed. My phone has a much better display, better resolution, higher max brightness, lower minimum brightness, better camera, better selfie-snapper, a fingerprint sensor, an iris scanner that cannot be fooled by a facemask, a notification LED, better battery life, and not to mention a headphone jack. It is not only about speed. A multitude of drop tesdts have been done between the Note8 and the iPhone X, the Note8 being the more durable one in every test. Yes - glass is very fragile. However, the glass on my phone is stronger. Not all glass is created equal. That is why I said what I did. As for "mommy issues!" as well as "acne," I do not suffer from either of those. I have a good relationship with my mother, and If you want to check out my Instagram, young.spences, you can clearly see I don't have acne. :) I invite you to check it out! As for my comments being mind-numbingly stupid and retarded, at least I am maintaining my calm and not only using insults to back myself up.

Hissy fit alert! The iPhone's screen has been proven to be the best OLED screen, better even that the one's on Samsung's own phones! As for the camera, the iPhone camera is the most popular camera out of all smartphone camera's, so even if Samsung does have a great camera, it doesn't really matter if no-one uses it!! Drop tests have nothing to do with premium high end phones, the Nokia 3310 would beat out pretty much any phone but I wouldn't consider that a premium phone! Stop with these childish notions kiddo! As for the insults....... I'M NOT EVEN SORRY!! Haha! (Imagine the LMAO Emoji here!) I ain't going to check your Instagram or anything like that either kiddo, why would I subject myself to that horror! (LMAO Emoji)

I'm having a "hissy fit?" I am calmly talking to you about my opinions and simply providing you with facts, calmly. That does not seem like a "hissy fit" to me. A hissy fit would be what you are doing now, calling me names and using all capital letters for some of your sentences. So, you, my friend, are the one having a hissy fit. If you want to talk about how much better the OLED screen on the iPhone is, talk to Samsung. They're the ones who make the the screen for the iPhone. So, you should actually be saying that Samsung's screen has been proven to be the best. Apple has nothing to do with the creation and manufacturing of the screen. Thanks, Samsung! Also, where is your proof for your claim? We are talking about smartphones here, not Nokia 3310 "dumb phones." So do not try to bring that into this conversation.

Actually, his comment says, "in response to #50, so he was actually talking to me. Thanks though.

In case you didn't get it from my :-P - I knew that but its just too much trolling and getting you all riled up!

I'll ask you again, because you avoided my question the first time - how am I tb throwing a hissy fit?

64. T12RYK

Just read through your comments... If you can't realise from that then I'm afraid not even I can't help you....

You have yet to provide me with ANY facts as to why the iPhone is "better."

You have also failed to tell me why I'm having a buddy fit. You're losing this argument, so you are resorting to making false accusations toward me to make me seem small. Please come back to me when you have a real, legitimate argument to entertain me with instead of throwing insults without claim.

U got a point. Who the hell said glass (GLASS, PEOPLE?! REALLY?!) was the standard for premium when we have titanium, steel, Hell, even copper: Anything but glass...

For display, glass is the standard, even if you go for sapphire, that wouldn’t not be shatter resistant but scratch resistant only. The only material that can be shatter and shock resistant is probably plastic which is hardly considered “premium” for any display

52. firebird820

Posts: 157; Member since: Jan 01, 2017

Yes, because we can use titanium, steel, and copper, which are all metal and not see-through, for a display.....

Bezeless tablets sound like such a terrible idea.... My surface book give me a bit of issues with its "thin" bezels from time to time, and that is far from being edge to edge...

Ha, I knew they would try to put that shtty notch in other iProducts! Can't wait to see the notch cover half the screen of the iWatch. Doubling down on stupidity seems to be Apple's new talent, LOL!

Please no notch.

Gonna be one big notch. Considering the size of the iPad, it shouldn't have one. Ditching FPS on the iPad is completely dumb.
