Apple will allegedly unveil three new iPads in March, including a bezel-less 10.9-inch model

From our perspective, the most interesting rumored update is an alleged bezel-less 10.9-inch iPad. Interestingly, Apple is said to have fitted in a much larger screen without increasing the footprint compared to the latest iPad Air, which features a 9.7-inch display.
Supply chain sources say that both the 9.7- and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro models will be updated although the series is in for a bit of a twist. Allegedly, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro won't be a premium tablet despite its 'Pro' name. Instead, it will feature entry-level specs and will be positioned in a more affordable segment of the market, probably somewhere above the iPad Mini.
While the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is expected to be nerfed with the next iteration, its larger brother is said to be improved. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is expected to be updated to a True Tone display like the one on the current-generation 9.7-inch iPad Pro, an upgrade that made sense the minute the 9.7-inch iPad Pro came out.
For a brief moment, we'd like to get back to the alleged bezel-less 10.9-inch iPad. With Apple widely expected to launch the iPhone 8 with an edge-to-edge AMOLED screen next fall, the unveiling of a bezel-less iPad would provide us with a sneak peek at how Apple plans to approach edge-to-edge screens looking forward.
Since we've mentioned the iPad Mini, this new rumor indicates that Apple will not update the iPad mini series. Previous rumors dating back this October claimed that the iPad mini is in for its much-needed refresh, but this new rumor says it's not going to happen.
How does a bezel-less iPad Air sound to you guys?

Waiting to update my iPad pro for the display and 256gb of storage. And A10 or A11x will be a beast

You think the iPads would employ an A11X chipset......seems like you are 'back from the future'!

12" Mac Book 13" Mac Book Pro 15" Mac Book Pro 7,9" iPad (mini ? Will they drop it off to fit ?) 9,7" iPad Pro 12,9" iPad Pro Btw, looks like Apple is killing off their Air (mini ?) trademark, which is kind of sad to me.

So the 9.7" will be a "pro" with lesser specs. The strange thing is lesser specs refer to A9 or A8x. Current gen uses A9x so not changing the soc would be dumb. I'm confused here. Maybe A10 for the 9.7 and A10x for the others. Seems apple will pull a MacBook pro 2016 stunt

Really but how come apple still sell more iPad Pro than Microsoft Surface Pro. http://www.designntrend.com/ar
And why is Microsoft fan so bother about which tablet get sold?
I just can't understand because i am not bother by people buying a Surface Pro. In fact i think its a great option too!! Just that i already own a capable windows tablet but i think i am iPad would be great device. Just a bit overprice.
