Several rumors indicate that the tech giant Apple would be ready to move the design concept adopted on the iPhone X to its new iPad. That way, another of the signature products of the firm, would make a qualitative leap in terms of appearance.
This would be the design of the iPad in 2018
With the arrival of the new iPhone, those from Cupertino bet on “revolutionizing” the design of their flagship phone. For this, they adopted the concept of the screen without bezels, with a small cut in the facial recognition sensors, the removal of the Home button and, in addition, the adoption of a new OLED screen called Super Retina.
A well-known filtering specialist in Apple products has claimed that the Californian company will transfer that same design to the next iPad. Mark Gurman, the publisher of Bloomberg, says that this would be the biggest redesign in the mobile device since 2010.
Among the first details revealed is the novelty that the tablet would have a 10.5-inch screen, while maintaining the LCD technology, as opposed to the OLED screens used in the iPhone X. In addition, it would also add facial recognition technology Face ID, as a security pattern, also eliminating the Home button of the device.
According to the source, the concept of minimum frames screen in this new model would also be adopted, surely including also the characteristics related to screen resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.
In the digitized images that have been released, taking into account this design concept, you can visualize how iOS 11 would also be functional to the new structure, thus completing the experience that the company seeks to print on its products.
On the other hand, there is no accurate information about the technical specifications with which this new version would arrive -probably in 2018, although it is mentioned that there would be improvements in the performance of its processor and in the graphics section.
It is also likely that, by adopting Face ID, all functionalities using such technology will be transferred to the mobile device, such as facial unlocking and the use of the Apple Pay mobile payment system. The Apple Pencil would also have a redesign in its features, in order to adapt it to the functionality of iOS 11.
In short, everything seems to indicate that the “revolutionary” design that those of Cupertino printed on the iPhone X is here to stay and that it will end up having an impact on all the company’s products, sooner rather than later.
