Frameless iPad can present in March 2017
Analysts at Barclays Research, citing a source from the Asian supply chain, reported that in March next year, Apple is expected to release three models of the iPad.
As expected, we will present an updated model with a diagonal of the display 9.7 and 12.9 inches, as well as completely new edge-to-edge tablet with a screen diagonal of 10.9 inches. The informant claims that the frameless design will allow the new tablet size to maintain the same size as the current model with a display diagonal of 9.7 inches. It is suggested that this model may lose the Home button.
All three new models needs to obtain arrays of four microphones and keep the 3.5 mm Jack for headphones. The revolutionary changes in the iPad lineup, including the transition to flexible displays OLED, are expected only in 2018.
