Apple’s iPad Pro 12.9-inch for 2018 will come with a Type-C USB port for charging like the new MacBook, MacBook Pro series. Apple will do away with the regular Lightning port, which is present on iPhones, according to a new report by noted analyst Ming Chi Kuo.
According to MacRumours, which accessed Kuo’s note to investors, Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro models will have an 18W power adapter. The note says Apple will replace “Lightning with a USB-C interface and bundling with a new unibody design 18W power adapter, which cancels the removable plug design…”
He also adds that the 2018 iPhone Xs series will continue with a “lightning connector”, and not the USB-C port, which was also being rumoured. Apple’s new iPad Pro will also likely come with Face ID on the front and a display with thinner bezels on the side, according to reports.
Apple iPad Pro will launch along with the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xr or the 6.1-inch variant of iPhone, iPhone Xs Plus. A new Apple Watch Series 4 is also expected at the event.
