The Cupertino-based tech giant Apple has a lot on their plate as 2017 approaches. Tech fans and enthusiasts have their eyes glued at the company as they wait for the iPad Pro 2, Apple's high-end tablet that is in very much need of an upgrade.

Recent reports claim that the highly-acclaimed iPad Pro 2 will grace the shelves of Apple stores worldwide in 2017. The upcoming tablet is expected to be significantly different from its predecessors in terms of design. A massive design overhaul is bound to arrive next year for numerous Apple devices as they celebrate the iPhone's ten-year anniversary.

According to rumors, folks that are waiting for the iPad Pro 2 release date to come along will be greeted with new features and aesthetic improvements. However, some features that have been around since the first iPad may be ditched by the tech giant. Apparently, the home button will be no more when the iPad Pro 2 comes out, hence allowing the device to sport a larger display. The iPad Pro 2 will also come out with three size variants, a 7.9-screen model will be available along with a 10.9-inch, and a 12.9-inch tablet.

The design overhaul also affects the tablet's display, the iPad Pro 2 is speculated to have a flexible AMOLED display, thus flaunting high-end display capabilities. There is also a possibility that Apple will release the Apple Pencil with the launch of the iPad Pro 2. Several rumors claim that the iPad Pro 2 may also feature an all-glass exterior similar to what is expected from the iPhone 8.

Moreover, Apple fans are not only looking at a new design for the upcoming iPad Pro 2, the tablet will also boast the newest hardware under the hood. Rumors claim that the iPad Pro 2 will be powered by the A10X Fusion chip matched with an amazing 6GB RAM as reported by PC Advisor.

Apple fans have a lot to look forward to in 2017, including the iPad Pro 2. However, Apple has yet to release an official statement regarding the upcoming tablet, so it is best to take these with a grain of salt. The iPad Pro 2 is expected to be released in March 2017.
