Rumor: iPad Pro to ditch bezels, making 10.9” screen fit in current 9.7” size

Apple’s next iPad Pro release will feature a mostly bezel-less 10.9” model that’s the same size as the current 9.7” version, according to Macotakara. An “informed source in Taiwan” said that bezel will remain in the top portion of the device—where the FaceTime camera is located—but will be eliminated along the sides and the bottom, displacing the home button entirely. The source said the new tablet will also expand to 7.5mm in thickness, up from the current 6.1mm. The source predicts the larger iPad Pro will increase in thickness as well, and doubled down on its previous claim that Apple will release a third, smaller iPad Pro in the current iPad mini size. Rumors about Apple eliminating the bezels in its next iPhone to increase screen size have been floating around for some time, so it’s not impossible that the company is doing the same for its iPads, but we’d be a bit surprised to see such a dramatic redesign introduced in the iPad first.
