Apple has kept iPad design basic for a long-time. It had contributed to the iPad maintaining the Apple brand decently. Even still, it makes sense if Apple does plan to update the A11 Bionic chip - now inside iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X - to be more suitable and optimized for higher-level and more power-intensive tasks done on an iPad Pro.

The focus is heavy on iOS 11 features such as annotation support for screenshots, the new Dock interface, and more.

Apple launched the 10.5-inch iPad Pro earlier this year. Architecture design, broke the news that the A11X uses 8 core design, three large nuclear Monsoon, five small nuclear Mistral, at the same time built-in M11 coprocessor and NPU (neural computing unit).

Breaking the performance and efficiency boundaries of its chipsets, the next iPad Pro models that have been rumored to get announced in 2018 are expected to be packing octa-core processors.

According to a post by Chinese website MyDrivers, Apple is working on a new model of iPad.

The tech giant is said to be sticking with Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for the new model as they are facing technical and financial constraints that prevent the same display technology transition that the iPhone X made this year. It will also be its first 7 nm processor, based on TSMC's improved 7 nm process.

The octa-core upgrade is not confirmed.

Analysts are speculating that the bezels in this iPad will be thinner.

With the success of iPhone X, Apple is tipped to incorporate several of the premium handset's features to its upcoming releases, its tablet line included.
