Apple will reportedly revamp a large portion of its product portfolio in the fall of this year. Alongside the expected release of new iPhone models, the Cupertino company is said to launch two new iPad Pro models with Face ID and a more powerful Apple Watch with minimal bezel.
9to5Mac got to work following the report and mocked up what these products could look like. Needless to say, Apple’s upcoming portfolio could be the strongest—and prettiest—it’s ever been.
First up is Apple’s rumored iPad Pro revamp. There will reportedly be two models—one with a large 12.9-inch display and another with an 11-inch display. Neither, it seems, will feature a display notch, which is great news for folks annoyed by the trend.
Instead, the bezels look greatly minimized, allowing Apple to cram larger displays into smaller bodies. The iPad Pro with a 12.9-inch display is significantly smaller than the existing model, which the iPad Pro with an 11-inch display is smaller than the current 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
Both iPad Pro models are expected to feature Face ID—and get this: there may not be a notch. Instead, the TrueDepth camera will be seamlessly integrated into the bezel, with a more consistent look framing the devices.
As for the Apple Watch Series 4, the only difference could be expanded display sizes. The mockup from 9to5Mac provides us with a good idea as to what the current design might look like compared to what’s coming. The change isn’t drastic, but it doesn’t give users more display real estate.
We’ll find out what Apple has to offer later this fall.
