Apple plans to launch a new iPad Pro model imminently—perhaps as soon as next month—according to sources cited by Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who has accurately predicted several Apple product launches over the past few years.
The report claims that the new iPad Pros will come in the same 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes in which they are currently offered and that they will look similar to current models, too. However, they will have better cameras, faster processors, a new port, and—at least in the 12.9-inch model—a new screen technology.
The biggest surprise in this article is that the new port would be the same one that is found in Apple’s laptops: Thunderbolt. Bloomberg’s sources say that Apple has been testing versions of the iPad Pro that can connect to more external monitors and other kinds of peripherals because of the inclusion of a Thunderbolt port.
